by Rachel Pincus

“One of my favorite mantras is, ‘New business starts after 6:00 PM,’” the designer Victor Glemaud says. “You just get inspired when you go out and you make new...everything!” Here, the Queens native known for his flirty, fun, and cheeky namesake ready-to-wear brand tells the story of his life through the events that have shaped it: the Met Gala with Dominique Jackson, partying at Le Baron in Paris, and the pivotal dress he created for Ashley Graham for the CFDA Awards—which convinced him to become a designer full-time.
