Famous for his ability to enhance women bodies with his unforgettable bandage dresses, the Parisian Couturier, created his new company under the name of Hervé L. Leroux in 2000 and opened his boutique 32 rue Jacob in Saint Germain des Prés, a mythic place where once lived the interior designer, Madeleine Castaing.

In his boutique atelier, he now concentrates on his couture work molding on the body his draped dresses in a pure and graphic manner. Custom made pièces created for women addicted to his ultra feminine, glamourous, inimitable style, all over the world.
