“Today is the day I’ve been working towards for quite a while now, it has been a bumpy ride. A lot of self doubt and being hard on myself but today there is no room for that, today is the day my dream comes true,” Pauline penned on social media the day of her show. “I always wanted to create and today you will have a glance at what is in my little brain. It is an understatement to say that I am stressed and excited but it feels so right.”

Pauline first launched her clothing line in 2017, with the name Altered Designs. Fashion has clearly always been a passion of the Monaco royal’s. Before attending New York’s Parson’s School of Design, she interned at Vogue and spent six months working at Louis Vuitton. Previously speaking to the French newspaper Point de Vue, Pauline admitted, “My parents never said to me, ‘You have to do this, or dress like that,” adding, “They always let me do things in accordance with my personality. I’ve always been a little rock n’ roll.”
