House of Leonard: Daniel Triboullard
Since 1958, Leonard creations have been unmistakable and based on an original concept: a flower laid on silk. The House of Leonard is a unique label, invariably associated with the art of fabric printing, and has succeeded in translating the cheerful and colourful world of couturier Daniel Tribouillard, who invented the revolutionary printing process of the « fully-fashioned ».
A French Fashion History Book
This book complements the first international exhibition dedicated to the designer (musée des Tissus, Lyons). It brings an exclusive perspective on one of the main exporters of French fashion and luxury goods in Asia, but also on the remarkable work of Lyons fabric finishers, with whom Leonard has always worked.
The place of Leonard in the History of Fashion
The book will include chapters dedicated to the man himself, Daniel Tribouillard, to the Company and to the Leonard collections and their evolution. Chapters will also be dedicated to Leonard´s place in the history of fashion since the end of the 1950´s, to the printing of fashion fabrics, to the techniques and also to the historic importance of this industry in Lyons and this region.
