Paris couturier Jean-Paul Gaultier.


At its most basic level, couturier is the French term for
male dressmaker, though it’s often applied to designers, manufacturers,
and merchants of women’s clothing in general, male
or female.

At a higher level, however, the term couturier refers specifically
to Paris-based designers and fashion houses approved to
produce haute couture.

Bonus word: just so you know, the proper French term for
a female dressmaker is couturière (coo-choo-YEHR´).
