Laurent Mercier is a busy man. This Swiss, who settled in Paris fifteen years ago, is indeed as famous for his collaborations with people from the show business as he is for his own label. After having followed a couture apprenticeship at Di Marino Couture, between 1983 and 1986, and a technical formation approved by the getting of a ” Federal Certificate of capability” in couture, he left the Switzerland of his childhood to study fashion design at Studio Berçot in Paris.
