French fashion designer Julien Fournié recently received France’s coveted Haute Couture protected label for his unique creations. FRANCE 24 met him as he prepared his first runway show as a new member of one of fashion's most prestigious clubs.

“I exaggerate an ultra-feminine look, focusing on the woman’s body shape, the hips and body length. Obsessing on heights, on stance,” the 41-year old said as he put the final touches to his “First Kinetics” runway show for the Parisian Haute Couture fashion week

“A woman’s greatness is in her stance.”
