María Bernad and her vision of "Les Fleurs"

Updated: Dec 12, 2020

Les Fleurs was born of a desire to change the patterns of consumption and reassess the cyclical patterns that have made fashion the world’s greatest polluter. Founded in 2017, Les Fleurs began as a curated marketplace, where founder Maria Bernad shared archival ready-to-wear and accessories, alongside products from her own brand with a global community. The sentiment that lays at the very core of the brand encouraged the concept to evolve into what it is today, Les Fleurs Studio, a collaborative social and retail platform providing visibility for global designers operating in the sustainability space. Maria’s unique market position gives her valuable insight into emerging brands and a discerning curatorial approach, garnering the platform a loyal and growing community.

Part of the platform’s mission is to reclaim the term ‘sustainability’, and set new parameters for its meaning in the wake of corporate greenwashing. At Les Fleurs Studio, all designers work solely with pre-existing materials, vowing against contributing to the growing problem of waste, whether that be reconcepting vintage tailoring salvaged from landfill, using deadstock material from luxury brands, or curating edits of archive and vintage; ‘we don’t produce. we reuse.’

Les Fleurs Studio is the first platform of its kind, a digital and physical space to exchange ideas, collaborate, and invest in the future.
