Esteban Cortazar

Born in Bogota Colombia in May 1984, Esteban Cortazar is
a Paris based designer. His distinctive style pays homage to
his Latin heritage and combines it with French craftsmanship,
and feminine structure.

Referred to by Vogue as “the most uninhibited designer showing
in Paris” Esteban Cortazar’s collections are found in the most prestigious on-line retailers, department stores and luxury boutiques including Colette, Barneys, Le Bon Marché, Browns, Net-a-Porter and Matches. Cortazar has dressed celebrities including Cate Blanchett, Gal Gadot, and Rhianna to name a few.
The president of Colombia recently named Cortazar an official ambassador of the arts for the country.

Cortazar started his fashion career in Miami at the age of 16
and soon after debuted his first collection in New York in 2002.
In 2007 Cortazar moved to Paris to helm the House of Emanuel Ungaro. In 2012 Natalie Massanet approached Esteban to create a series of capsule collections for Net-a-Porter. This process ushered the relaunch of his eponymous Paris based brand in 2014, where he has been showing for the past 8 seasons.
Esteban Cortazar’s signature style is confidently articulated through slick, sculptural lines tempered by ease, grace and flow.
