Agathe Mougin, a Paris-based designer, DJ and model, was first discovered on the streets at age nineteen for her resemblance to the Millenium heroine, Lisbeth Salander. Mougin’s androgynous, yet feminine leaning look launched her modeling career and caught the eyes of the industries’ brightest including Jean-Baptiste Mondino who photographed her tattooed back for the pages of Libération Magazine. Agathe’s modeling career continues to flourish – she has been featured by numerous brands and publications such as AMI Paris, Vogue France, GANT, Marie Claire, AnOther, Flaunt, Nike, Birkenstock and Rick Owens, among others.
At the age of twenty-two, Agathe met fellow DJ Wladimir Schall in a Paris nightclub. The two deejays became fast friends and embarked on a long-standing professional relationship performing DJ sets and curating sound design for high profile clients around the globe. More recently, Agathe has been DJing solo, performing sets for Beats by Dre, Chanel, Coach, Miu Miu and Sacai, among others, around the globe. As an open format DJ curating her mixes to the needs of clients, Mougin’s musical influence is very diverse. She pulls inspiration from disco, R&B, techno, electronic, and classic folk music.
Mougin speaks the language of design, unable to see fashion without music nor music without fashion. In 2021, Agathe and her business partner, Laura Marciano launched Chapel Paris, a unisex, inclusive wardrobe, deployed over a small series of timeless items, crafted out of upcycled noble fabrics from high end French houses and tailored in Parisian workshops.
She currently resides Paris, but is always traveling finding inspiration from around the globe.
