Pieter Mulier’s passion for design and couture dates back to his childhood, spent in the workshops of his grandfather's luxury shirt factory in Belgium. After completing his design and architecture studies in 2001, he was quickly spotted by Raf Simons, who recruited him to design the men's line for his eponymous brand, where Pieter Mulier developed his sense of tailoring and cutting.

In 2005, he was appointed Director of accessories at Jil Sander, where he confirmed his taste for excellence and discovered a passion for designing accessories, which combines technology, ergonomics and aesthetics. The year 2012 marked Pieter Mulier’s debut in the Couture world as he became Design Director at Dior in charge of Couture, Ready-to-Wear and Women's Accessories. A dream becoming true for Pieter Mulier, who had always wanted to recapture the magic and dynamic of the workshops. During these years, Pieter Mulier refined his technical expertise, his vision of femininity and his leadership with creative teams. In 2016, he settled in New York as Creative Director to Raf Simons at Calvin Klein and managed the design teams of the emblematic brand until 2019.

In February 2021, Pieter Mulier was appointed creative director of ALAÏA to perpetuate Azzedine Alaïa's quest for perfection and unique vision of fashion. His first collection for ALAÏA was shown in July 2021 and placed femininity at the heart of the design and brought the house's values into the modern era.
