Chanthal Thomass

Chantal Thomass, born in 1947 in Paris, began her career in the late 60’s at the prestigious fashion house Dorothée Bis before creating, shortly after, her own brand named Ter et Bantine. She broke with tradition by using very unusual fabrics in her creations, such as wax clothing, flannelette and Lurex mesh. Her bohemian sense of style attracted numerous icons of that day and age, including Brigette Bardot

In 1975, the seamstress created her eponymous company, and presented her first collection the following year. Chantal Thomass revolutionizes the ready-to- wear collection by being the first designer to introduce lingerie in her fashion shows. The Chantal Thomass brand is mainly characterized by collections of ultra- sexy lingerie with bra, garter belts, corsets or tights. She wanted lingerie to veil and reveal women's bodies with lace and fine, transparent fabrics. Her style was characteristic, bold and daring and she wanted to support woman's sexuality and not to hide it. She offered a bit of luxury to women by offering her seductive, sensual and beautiful lingerie.

The house specialized in lingerie and hosiery, but in the 80s they expended their offer of products to carpets, furniture and stationery. Thereafter, the brand evolves by introducing new materials for his creations but also diversifying its business with the launch of a perfume line, a range of accessories as well as a line of beauty products. Products of the Chantal Thomass brand can be obtained in 18 countries worldwide today and collections are presented in fashion shows and in boutiques. The products bring a touch of glamour and luxury to every woman.

With Veronese, she is a loyal customer; her universe expands to interior design. The opportunity has been given to create the objects she wanted. She drew mirrors, a family of lights and was able to confront her dreams to manufacture, making the trip to Murano. Like Alice in Wonderland, she was surprised and completely seduced by the range of possibilities that are placed at her disposal. With the privilege of know-how still alive, her writing is magnified and is embodied through the "ladies of the night" collection she imagined. It is indeed luxury in terms of rarity, a thorough treatment of "what is not seen" and of course poetry, that of playful and feminine world of creative, with winks look at fashion, diversion quilting and frills that are so dear to her.
