Group for fans of Hedi Slimane.

Hedi Slimane (born July 5, 1968 in Paris) is a French fashion designer of Tunisian, Italian-Brazilian origins. He studied political sciences, and Art History at the École du Louvre, and was also educated as a tailor. From 1992 to 1995 he worked for Jean-Jacques Picart, notably on the centenary exhibition of Louis Vuitton's "LV" monogramme label. Pierre Bergé appointed him as Collections and art Director at the house of Yves Saint Laurent in 1997, and they relaunched YSL Rive Gauche Homme.

He decided to leave the house in 1999, and was invited to create his own label within the Gucci Group. He was also invited to join the Prada Group to design for the Jil Sander label. Instead, he chose to work at Christian Dior, where he became the creative designer for men’s clothing, and designed the line of Dior Homme in 2000. In 2002, the Council of Fashion Designers of America named him the International Designer of the Year in New York. In 2003, he was appointed creative director for Christian Dior men's fragrances. He also created the first skincare lines for Dior.

In July 2007, Slimane decided to leave the house of Dior. In an attempt to convince him to stay, Dior's parent company, LVMH offered to finance Slimane's own signature line. Negotiations lasted for six and a half months. Slimane rejected their offer in February 2008. He stated on his website that he did not want to lose his creative freedom, sell his name, or give up the control of his own brand. He is expected to debut a line of his own which will include womenswear.

Slimane has a background in furniture design, fragrance, store design, and photography. He is perhaps best known for the slim silhouette of his menswear. In addition to his work as a fashion designer, he has been involved in various other projects, including as editor-in-chief of "Libération" and designing album covers for artists such as Phoenix and Daft Punk. In 2004, he published "Stage", a collection of his Rock musician photography. He has published several other books of his photography and has contributed writing and photography to many fashion magazines including "Vanity Fair", "VMAN" and "Vogue".

Slimane has scouted and recruited many models for his fashion shows from the streets of London, New York, and Berlin, or among many young rock stars who fit his aesthetic. Some of his discoveries have gone on to success as models. Slimane interest for indie rock started a whole movement in fashion. His silhouette and attitude have been adopted widely on a street level. He does not drink, smoke or do drugs.
