These Are Some Of My Favorite Quotes From Herve Peugnet, The Creator Of Herve Leger Dresses,They Explain Exactly Why So Many Women Love These Form-Fitting Dresses.

Herve Peugnet Has An Extremely Impressive Fashion Resume. At The Early Age Of 23, Fashion God, Karl Lagerfeld Recognized His Talent And Took Him Under His Training. During His Career, He Has Contributed To The Designs Of Chanel, Lanvin, Fendi, Diane Von Furstenburg, Chloe And Swarovski.

At Age 28, He Begins Working For Himself, Creating The Herve Leger Line. 4 Years Later, Bandage Dresses Were Born! They Were Inspired By His Experience In Designing Bathing Suits And Some Throwaway Seam Bindings. The First Bandage Dress Was Also The Finale Look Of Herve Leger’s 1989 Runway Show. The Bandage Dress, Originally Called “Bender Dress” Became An Instant Sensation. They Were Called “Bender,” Because They Molded The Body Into The Perfect Female Form.
