The epitome of exquisite fashion, Herve Leger is a collection of supremely seductive couture and deluxe ready-to-wear designs. Created for a glamorous and sophisticated woman, bands and tucks that closely wrap the body have become the signature of the collection. By smoothing and shaping women's bodies, Herve Leger dresses create a sensuous and feminine silhouette. The body shaping cut of each item, characterized by the aptly named "bandage dress," sculpts the woman's body to perfection. The Herve Leger woman knows she will make an unforgettable statement, whether walking the red carpet or simply painting the town red.
The company HERVE LEGER S.A. has existed since 1985.
Sewn entirely by hand on the premises, they are sold under the Herv Lger Couture label.
Since 1993, the company markets a luxury Ready-to-wear line (items in fabric, knitwear and leather) under the Herv Lger Paris Label. The Herv Lger style creates exceptional body-sculpting, making an unforgettable statement.
The first Herv Lger boutique opened in October 1995 on the world famous rue du Faubourg Saint-Honor.
In 1999, Parisian couture house, Herve Leger, was acquired by Los Angeles-based fashion giant BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP, marking the first time in history that a French couturier had been acquired by an American designer. Azria immediately set out to expand Herve Legerï¿½s retail presence. The collection is currently available at four eponymous boutiques on New Yorkï¿½s Madison Avenue, Beverly Hillsï¿½ Rodeo Drive, Parisï¿½ legendary rue Cambon and in Las Vegas.
Responding to an increasing demand in the marketplace, a capsule collection of cocktail dresses and separates designed by Max Azria was launched exclusively at Intermix for Summer 2007. Additional wholesale partners such as Selfridges, Net-a-Porter, Ron Herman, Fred Segal Flair, Henri Bendel, Wynn Las Vegas, Brown Thomas in Ireland, Holt Renfrew in Canada and Della Spiga in Melbourne, Australia will carry the collection as of Fail 2007.
