Embroidery wizard Francois Lesage
December 1, 2011 after a serious, prolonged illness died famous embroiderer and owner of the famous Parisian Embroidery House Francois Lesage. His amazing work and contribution to the development of haute couture is immense. French Embroidery wizard Francois Lesage (March 31, 1929 – December 1, 2011) was a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur. “I never forget that I am only an embroiderer, craftsman, and my imagination should be framed in a simple matter of fact materials – silk, sequins, stones. But they give birth to a firebird dream that I just want to catch on the tail. But the dream can not be caught – it is always in front, making our life more beautiful …” – François Lesage. Fashion without embroidery – the same as Bastille Day without fireworks!”- said Karl Lagerfeld, and added: “For me, this embroidery means Lesage”.
