Born in Norway, Dundas studied at Parsons in New York. It was there that his obsession with the female body began; an obsession he would take through his design roles, with an eye for complementing the female figure with his talent for cut and pattern. In 1992, Dundas became design assistant to Jean Paul Gaultier , where he stayed for eight years. All the while building up his experience, in 2000 Dundas moved to Lacroix, where he developed a sense for striking colours and patterns. In 2002 Dundas went to Roberto Cavalli as Chief Designer where he designed some of the brands most successful and heralded collections. Dundas was in 2005 subsequently recruited creative director of Emanuel Ungaro. After his tenure as creative director at Ungaro, Dundas was appointed artistic director at Emilio Pucci, owned by LVMH, in 2008, before returning to Cavalli. During his seven-year tenure at Pucci, Dundas developed the brand’s history of glamorous, colourful and patterned collections. Focusing on nightlife as a key inspiration, Dundas took Pucci in a new, youthful direction making the brand highly covetable with international celebrities. It was under the creative helm of Dundas that LVMH identified the label as a key future-growth vehicle, branching into new product categories such as shoes, handbags and eyewear. In 2015 Dundas returned to Roberto Cavalli as creative and artistic director, a move he described as a “homecoming” While at the brand Dundas continued his reputation as the go to designer for celebrities dressing Kim Kardashian and Gong Li for the Met Ball. After the sale of Cavalli in 2016 Dundas parted ways with the brand and in 2017, started his own namesake label with co-founder Evangelo Bousis. The brand was launched with Beyonce at the 2017 Grammys. The looks launched exclusively with Moda Operandi in July.
