Didier Grumbach To Be Replaced By Toledano At Fédération Française

Grumbach is the powerful and discreet man at the epicentre of French fashion. At the age of 77 he will leave a strong legacy as he retires from his positions. More here.

Didier Grumbach is one of fashions most powerful yet discreet leaders. Didier is the softly spoken man at the focal point of French fashion. Now 77 Grumbach is leaving his role as president of the Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode, and of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture.

Grumbach has had considerable influence over many designers and fashion houses over the years and his departure certainly signals the end of a successful and elegant era. Ralph Toledano is the man who will be leading French fashion as it begins it’s journey without the influence of Grumbach. Toldedano is a former chairman of Chloe and is currently president of the fashion department at Puig and head of the Chambre Syndicale du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode. Toledano is unquestionably the right man for the job.

WWD has reported that Toledano will be assisted in his new role by Stephane Wargnier who will take on the role of the newly created position of executive president. The successor for Grumbach’s other position as president of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture is yet to be appointed. One thing is for sure is that whoever they are they have some very big and very stylish boots to fill.
