Martin Grant was born in Melbourne, Australia. He launched his first ready-to-wear collection at the age of 16. The fashion prodigy's talent was immediately recognized by the Australian fashion industry and he was named Cointreau Young Designer of the Year. After studying sculpture at the Victorian College of the Arts, Grant established his studio in Paris and produced his first runway show there. His designs are renowned for their purity of line and their spectacular structure and volume. In 2004, the Federation Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers invited the label to show on its official calendar. Martin Grant's clients and muses include HH Sheikha Moza, Queen Rania of Jordan, Cate Blanchett, Juliette Binoche, Tilda Swinton and Emma Stone.
