Born in 1987 in Auvergne, Quentin Veron was raised in an environment surrounded by nature. His father was a professional equestrian and Quentin literally grew up in his father’s stables. He believes that his love of fur comes from being in contact with the horses from a very early age, although he did not make the connection until much later.
He found his artistic voice during high school and after graduation decided to attend the renowned Studio Berçot in Paris. One of the most prestigious schools in the world for applied arts, fashion and design, Studio Berçot is where Quentin started his artistic journey and building the foundation of his future career.
With his diploma in hand, Quentin Veron was noticed rather quickly in the fashion world. He was offered a position and moved to Los Angeles where he lived and worked for the better part of years. Upon returning to Paris, he held various jobs in the industry.
In 2008 Quentin designed his first capsule collection that was shot and featured in L’Officiel. This was the official launch of the Quentin Veron collection.
The first Quentin Veron runway show was presented in 2009 during Fashion Week. For the next five years Quentin followed the fashion cycle and produced collections and fashion shows during the RTW and couture that allowed him to develop his unique and instantly recognizable style. His approach to fur is extremely personal and very distinctive. The references for the collections were varied, but there was always a certain continuity and the result was unmistakably Quentin Veron. This was also a period of learning for Quentin, the more he created, the more he developed new techniques and creative ways of working with fur.
While honing his skills and developing his identity, Quentin worked on collaborations with Vranken Pommerey, Jean-Paul Goude, The Dorchester Collection and special projects with numerous celebrities in the entertainment world.
Starting in 2014, Quentin decided to take a different approach to his way of working. Knowing that what was most important to him was the direct contact with his clients. It was then that he decided to stop working within the confines of the fashion system, the wholesale/retail cycles and third party buyers. He realized that there were only two important elements: his craft and his clients.
