About the Event
Laure Hériard Dubreuil, Founder and President of The Webster, and Tokyo-based designer Julien David will discuss the challenges they encountered and how they managed, obstacle after obstacle, to become pillars of the French fashion industry. This candid debate will be moderated by Michelle Finamore, Curator of Fashion Arts at the Museum of Fine Arts.
A cocktail reception will be held after this one-of-a-kind discussion. Guests can meet the panelists and view backstage pictures from Julien’s show as well as several outfits of his design. Julien will unveil exclusive outfits from his upcoming collection, that will be exhibited in the gallery.
This event will precede the grand opening of the new Webster location, a six-story, 12,000 square feet concept store in the heart of Soho in Manhattan.
About Laure Hériard Dubreuil
About Julien David
“David noted, however, that his realization was personal, referencing the ordinary aspects he’s picked up from living in Japan, the U.S., and France. Certainly the way these looks were styled—active, pseudo-future sunglasses included—gave them curb appeal in a way that actual ordinary falls short of. For him, normal seems like a novelty.” (Vogue)
