PRECOUTURE : meeting with two fearless fashionistas

Chic Des Plantes Detox

It’s the story of Céline Brugnon, a Parisienne wild about fashion and often frustrated at not being able to find in boutiques the pieces she spotted on the fashion-week catwalks.

After working for 13 years with Kamel Mennour, she launched www.precouture.com with her associate Sandra Mascio, a site where you can pre-order pieces from the show of the upcoming season…

The two bosses of Pre Couture share with us their fashion advice and spotlight pieces of the moment.

Céline’s short-list

The cape: indispensable and very practical, it conveys chic to any outfit.

Flare pants: they make the silhouette look longer, I have just bought a J.Brand pair that I wear all the time !

High-thigh boots: I adore those by Alberta Ferretti.

Precouture, the greatest way to get the clothes before everyone else

up until now, professional buyers were the only ones deciding what was going to be commercialized in a collection (size, colors.) and the final client was not sure to find in shops nor on internet the coveted pieces seen during the shows.

Pre-Collection, is our ideal boutique. The concept? Precouture.com allows you to pre-order collections immediately after the shows and to receive them before they are officially sold.

In other words, this way we allow clients to decide on their own what they will be wearing tomorrow.

Precouture.com, it’s also the must-go platform during all the fashion weeks of New-York, Milan, London and Paris to spot the previews for new trends, watch the shows live and gain access to the backstages of all the leading designers.

Aside from Fashion Weeks, we feature exclusive collections and pieces from the ongoing collections immediately available for sale.

Daring to mix styles! An evening dress worn with trainers or slip-on sandals”, explains Céline.

For Sandra, it’s a big tote, so she can discretely switch, before a rendezvous or a show, her pair of sneakers for high-heel pumps!
