Lloyd Klein, a true "Aquarian", has always been drawn to the creative
process. His college years were spent as a serious student of architecture with
studies in Europe and internship in the United States. His appreciation and
understanding of this field is evident in the structural elements of his designs.
Having attended a Givenchy runway show of Haute Couture in his twenties, his
fascination with the art of building design turned into a dedicated romance
with fashion design. Without formal fashion school training, he began a self-study
of the great fashion artists of Europe and the United States developing a keen
interest in the work of such masters as Yves St. Laurent, Jacques Fath and the
timeliness of American designer Halston. After his five-season tenure at Grés
he terminated his contract to continue his own identity as a designer. Lloyd
Klein continued by creating separate seasonal collections ranging from Createur,
Couture and Prêt-a-Porter for his own House of Couture. His collections
have been presented in London; Milan, Russia and Asia. Lloyd Klein’s private
couture clients include the “Who’s Who” of Palm Beach and
New York society. Celebrities wearing the creations for appearances or for photo-shoots
include: Angela Bassett receiving her M.A.C Fashion Icon Award, Pink on the
Cover of Teen People, Paula Abdul hosting VH-1, as well as Gwen Stefani in Arena,
Penelope Cruz, Kristen Davis, China Chow, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Christina
Applegate, Nicole Kidman, many others.
