Private Visit To Léonard W/ Foreign Trade Minister Nicole Bricq

Last Wednesday, we were invited to an exceptional event: a private visit to the Maison Léonard with Nicole BRICQ, Minister of Foreign Trade.
On this occasion, Daniel Tribouillard, President of Léonard; Nathalie Tribouillard- Chassaing, Director General; and Virginie Tribouillard-Bienvenu, Deputy Director General, presented the house’s story, its know-how – which joins craftsmanship with innovation – as well as its international development.
Léonard is one of the only family run yet profitable houses in luxury ready-to-wear clothing to expand internationally.
They also opened the doors to their workshops and fashion studios for the minister. Léonard is opposed to the use of computers in creating fashion and carries out most of its work and design by hand in these workshops.
Léonard has 5000 designs in its safe. Something that will guarantee the survival of the house over the coming generations.
The Léonard fashion house, reputed for the beauty and sophistication of its prints, has 110 shops all over the world with 90 in Japan and development projects in China as well as both Southern and Northern America. This visit was an opportunity for Nicole Bricq to promote luxury fashion, a spearhead product in France’s international exports.
