Pierre-Alexis Dumas

The Prudential Series ended 2016 on a fashionable note with Hermès Creative Director Pierre-Alexis Dumas, who spoke intimately about the history of the iconic and loved brand.

Dumas opened up about the exclusive fashion house, explaining that all their initial items were made for the horse rider – but were soon adapted to suit modern society and the invention of the car. He delighted the crowd with the story behind the infamous Kelly bag – which had been failing for 30 years as a product before Grace Kelly was snapped covering her baby bump with it and low and behold, it became an overnight success.
