Since May 1997, Adeline Andre is an invited member of the Syndicate Chamber of Parisian Couture.
In 1970, after receiving her diploma from the School of the Syndicate Chamber of Parisian Couture, Adeline Andre entered the House of Christian Dior.
In 1981, Adeline Andre registered the pattern of her “three sleeve-hole” garment at the National Institute of Industrial Property in Paris and in 1982 at the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva.
A “three sleeve-hole” garment is now part of the museum collection of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New-York.
Adeline Andre’s first show, ladies ready-to-wear collection for fall-winter 83/84, was held on March 16th, 1983 at the Daniel Templon gallery.
Staged within a grand painting by Gerard Garouste, the guests, wearing the collection, posed for giant polaroid shots.
Up until March 1987, Adeline Andre presented her collections in places that had never before been used for fashion-shows, like the “Grant Salon” of the International Conference Center where the Treaty of Paris was signed, putting an end to the Vietnam War for example.
In these places, she presented her collections on models such as Anh Duong, Angela Wild, Dovanna, Terry Toye and Eugenie Vincent, whom she asked to mingle among the guests, creating a calm and intimate atmosphere as opposed to the podium shows of the time.
During the furor of padding and stretch in the fashion world, Adeline Andre presented tall and slender shapes with slight and svelte shoulders in fluid materials such as, silk crepes, wool satins, fine cashmere cloths–always dyed according to her personal colour range and also knits with rolled hems.
During the following years, she concentrated on creating designs for her private clientele, male and female, for whom she produced new made-to-measure collections, displayed for the first time at “Top of wear” parties, travelling private presentations in galleries, workshops or the salons of her friends in either Paris, London or New-York.
In 1994, Adeline Andre moved into her atelier-boutique at 5 Rue Villehardouin, in the Marais, the old Paris quarter near Place des Vosges. As well as her ready-to-wear collections, each season, since 1995, she has presented a Couture collection.
