Hermès, Christian Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga, Balmain, Yves Saint Laurent... All these great names have always been quite familiar with the atelier LOGNON. Maison Lognon has served the greatest french couture houses ever since Napoleon III, in the early 19th century. Any fashion designer who needed specific pleating patterns for their fabric knew that Maison Lognon was the atelier to call. Today, the workshop still uses the same fascinating techniques to pleat, and serve fashion's most imaginative minds.
Detail is what differentiate ready to wear from haute couture. Maison Legeron has been working with Chanel, Dior, Balmain, to provide them with all the small hand made elements that are needed. Artificial flowers, feather hand bags, flower crowns... All the magical little details that make an Haute Couture piece so special. Maison Legeron is often asked to create new "camelias" for Chanel, they also elaborated the poppy seed red flower for the Kenzo add "flower by Kenzo"... No machines are ever used inside the 100 years old atelier situated right in the center of Paris.
The worldwide famous hat makers Philip Treacy or Stephen Jones, and any custom made couture hat makers, know who to go to if they have an extravagant and original hat to create. Lorenzo Ré has been carving hat blocks ever since the 1960's, and before him, is uncle... Even Queen Elizabeth probably knows about atelier La Forme, since most of her hats find their hat blocks in the parisian atelier.

Needless to explain what the worldwide famous Lesage embroidery atelier is capable to achieve... The archives of Maison Lesage could probably illustrate all the evolution of fashion and style, ever since the 1930's.
