Stephane Ashpool

Founder of Pigalle
Nationality: French / Age: 31 / Discipline: Fashion
Named after Paris’s infamous red light district in which the brand’s flagship location is located, Pigalle experienced a substantial amount of growth and publicity over 2013. The label’s avant-garde seasonal collections do contrast greatly with some of its most iconic pieces, namely the Pigalle box logo T-shirt. Stephane’s own likable character has seen him become a respected entity within the global fashion and music community, with a highly respected following supporting the brand every step of the way. The French staple also made inroads this year especially in the Asian market over the summer by opening a temporary space in Tokyo.
