The Company

Lecoanet Hemant is a corporate fashion house. Functioning under the brand-name Lecoanet Hemant this trademark covers all fashion articles and accessories for men and for women. The work under this brand used to be mainly Haute Couture from 1984 - 2000; a Prèt-à-Porter de Luxe line that continues the legacy was added in the mid-nineties and continues to this day.



Didier's father was one of a select group who measured each centimeter of France in the 1960s, a profession that does not exist anymore.  Young Didier would not have guessed that his whole life would involve measuring as well - after Art and Advertising School, he ascended to a pinnacle of France's National Heritage: Haute Couture.

For Hemant it was a more direct path to Haute Couture.  Must have been in the genes several ancestors on both sides of his family had been attracted to textiles. He first went to Germany and then settled down in France.

They met at les école de la chambre syndicale de la couture Parisienne in Paris and immediately launched their career as Lecoanet Hemant. First as a freelance design duo, then with a store on world-famous faubourg Saint-Honoré, they evolved into a full-fledged Couture House accepted by the Ministry of Industry in the early 1980s. 

By the turn of the year 2000 they were excited by growth in India and set up a high-tech factory in Gurgaon. 

This is the birthplace of GENES – Lecoanet Hemant.
