Lecoanet Hemant was founded in Paris by Frenchman Didier Lecoanet and Indo-German Hemant Sagar in the early Eighties – they opened their first shop on Faubourg Saint Honoré just opposite the Elysée Palace. After showing the first collection with Cartier Haute Joaillerie they became members of the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, the governing body of High Fashion.
The unusual amalgamation of east and west with a recognizable signature drape reminiscent of the sari, made Lecoanet Hemant very soon the choice of French aristocrats, Middle Eastern Royalty as well as the international jet set.
They won the Golden Thimble known as Le de d’or (the Oscar equivalent of Haute Couture), the Swarovksi Creation prize 2005, and the Designer of the year award, Miami 2007. Their creations are in the permanent collection at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, Deutsches Museum, Berlin, and the Musée des Arts de la Mode, Paris.
In the year 2000 Lecoanet Hemant decided to pursue their long-standing dream of going into Ready to Wear and moved to India to set up a high tech factory with manufacturing principles inspired by Haute Couture techniques. This is where they manufacture their own lines:
- Lecoanet Hemant, the Couture Line
- Genes Lecoanet Hemant, their online collection is only available in India and
- Ayurganic, their organic Spa line is made out of Ayurvedic fabrics.
Lecoanet Hemant also manufactures collections for highly prestigious international Brands
