About Ramesh NAIR

Renowned for his knack for reviving heritage French fashion houses, India–born, Paris–based Ramesh Nair cut his couture teeth working for industry icons such as Yohji Yamamoto, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier and Martin Margiela (under whom he spent many years as senior designer at Hermès). Then, in 2010, he was handpicked by the Chairman and CEO of LVMH, Bernard Arnault, to reinvigorate the trunk and luggage brand Moynat, having laid dormant for 35 years. Fast forward a decade and Ramesh is now the Artistic Director of near three-century-old Parisian luxury accessories house, Joseph Duclos. He chats with us about his journey from rural India to the high fashion ateliers of Paris.
