The next time you visit Roland Mouret's Carlos Place flagship store, send a silent prayer of thanks to the man upstairs. We're talking, of course, about Mouret himself, who is literally upstairs. Just above the two floors of retail space, where Galaxy dresses, bridal gowns, and exquisite objets d'art abound, are the designer's office and atelier. This, friends, is where the magic happens.
This is an exciting time for Mouret, whose celebrity fans include Emma Stone, Carey Mulligan, and Sandra Bullock. In June, he will relaunch a revamped digital site and open his first New York City shop — on Madison Avenue, no less. Not too shabby.
