Sacha Cooper was born in the eighties and discovered pretty early his passion.
After his graduation from high school in arts and craftsman he started studying fashion design at the private fashion school ESMOD in Munich. Finishing the first 2 semesters with 2 school prizes in the pocket he felt needing more and changed to the private fashion academy AMD (‘Akademie für Mode & Design) in Duesseldorf where he won one more contest and successfully graduated in 2005.
Back in Luxembourg he started working for several clothing stores as a buyer. Over the years he lost hope and mostly his creativity as Luxembourg did not offer many opportunities for a fashion designer.
It is only in 2012 that he decided to give it another try. The huge success and positive feedback for his return during a charity fashion show with his collection ‘Heartache’ was the beginning establishment of Cooper Hotcooture.
The idea behind and the key point for the success was simple: offering subtle sexiness, affordable still wearable couture and more importantly unique designs that are handmade in Luxembourg.
The idea for the name of his label came out during a saturday night out with friends. It was a very hot summer night where they suddenly started joking around saying that it’s too hot for couture. As the known term ‘haute couture’ cannot be used that easily, he decided to name it after his last name and simply add ‘Hotcooture’ by playing around with the words of hot and couture.
Over the last few years Sacha Cooper could continue the success with further collections such as ‘Everybody’s sweethard’ (2013), ‘Amour noir’ (2014), ‘sins are tempting daily’ (2015) or ‘PAST|ELLE’ (2015).
He usually offers only one full collection per year to keep exclusivity and it was only in 2015 that Cooper Hotcooture had 2 collections due to increasing requests of fashion show participations and photography shootings.
The last one is another detail that Sacha Cooper pays attention to. He had already collaborations with many photographers and is always paying attention that the style of the photographer matches with the look and story of his designs.
Besides the several prizes he won during his studies in Germany the biggest one was the win of the JBC fashion contest in 2013. With nearly 70 participants he reached the most votes and was 1 out of 3 winners of this belgian design award. The prize: 3 designs of his especially for this contest created collection ‘Sophisticated Avengers’ – an hommage to the old Hitchcock movies – were produced and sold in several selected JBC stores.”
