Biography

Michel Gaubert is fashion's leading sound director. Along with producing the fashion show soundtracks for an extensive list of clients that includes Oscar de la Renta, Diane Von Furstenburg, Balenciaga, Dries van Noten and Jil Sander, the omnipresent sound director boasts a long-running collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld.

Gaubert is also well-known for his "mix-tape" compilations for Parisian concept store Colette and has guest written for Air France's in-flight magazine.

Gaubert began his career in sound in 1978 working as a buyer at an independent record store called Champs Disques that was frequented by Karl Lagerfeld. While travelling to London, Belgium and America to buy records for the store, Gaubert became inspired to produce his own sounds and began playing at the Palace, a Parisian hotspot popular with Thierry Mugler, Claude Montana and Kenzo Takada.

In the early 1990s, Gaubert first began working with Lagerfeld on the sound for his namesake label before eventually going on to work for Chanel and Fendi. 

He oversaw the eighty-piece orchestra at Chanel’s famous Spring/Summer 2011 show at the Grand Palais and produced the sound for Fendi’s iconic show on the Great Wall of China.

In 2007, Gaubert also collaborated with Longchamps on a range of travel bags, iPod covers and carry-alls.
