Louis Féraud created his first “Maison de Couture” in Cannes in 1950 and by 1955 had established a couture house in Paris From the mid-1950s he was dressing the Parisian elite and designed the wardrobe of Brigitte Bardot for many of her movies. It wasn’t however until 1958 that he presented his collection in Paris. In 1970, he signed a contract with Fink (Germany) for a ladies’ prêt-à-porter (ready-to-wear) collection. In 1978 he won the “Golden Thimble Award”. He went on to claim to win again in 1984. The head designer throughout the 70s, 80s, 90s remained the Icelandic designer Helga Bjornsson, known for her theatrical and innovative style. In September 1999 the Dutch group Secon acquired Féraud.
