The son of an American diplomat, Arend Basile was born in Rome and has lived in London, Finland, Sweden, Holland, North Africa and Washington D.C.. Half Dutch and half Italian-american, Arend Basile began his career as a design assistant to Jean-louis Scherrer for Pret-a-porter and haute couture after graduating with honors from Paris Ecoles de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, where he graduated first in his class for design.

He joined the House of Givenchy in 1983 as a design assistant and was named studio director and premier assistant to Hubert de Givenchy for Pret-a-porter and haute couture in 1989, a post he held until his departure from the House in 1997, also working with John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. While at Givenchy, Arend's additional responsibilities included the design and production of Givenchy accessories (jewelry, shoes, handbags, gloves, sunglasses, furs and swimwear).

Arend Basile's design always begins with the same concept: fabrics are draped on to mannequins before they are sketched. The dress must caress the body, he says. His collection enhances women, but never takes away from her essence. A dress is for a woman what a frame is for a painting, the painting needs its frame but the frame must not outshine the painting.
