Hermès

Fashion Designer

Hermès is a luxury French fashion house, founded in 1837 by Thierry Hermès. Its initial specialisation lay in accessories and leather goods, given its inception as a harness and saddle manufacturer, although the brand also now produces ready-to-wear clothing. Hermès is particularly well-known for two luxury handbags, the Kelly (named for and associated with the actress Grace Kelly) and the Birkin (named for and associated with actress Jane Birkin).

The designers that have served the house over the years have included Lola Prusac, Jacques Delahaye, Catherine de Karolyi, Monsieur Levaillant, Nicole de Vesian, Eric Bergère, Claude Brouet, Tan Giudicelli, Marc Audibet, Mariot Chane, Martin Margiela, Jean Paul Gaultier and Christophe Lemaire.

Véronique Nichanian, who is the current menswear designer, has worked for Hermès for 30 years. In 2014, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski was appointed head of womenswear.
