Hermes Window Display History ( merchandising )

Since 1977, Leila Menchari has been responsible for concocting the famous window displays for the Maison Hermès, 24 rue du Faubourg Saint Honore in Paris , as well as designing some of its most iconic scarves. She was born into a family of wealthy landowners by the sea near Hammamet in Tunisia…
In 1998 Tunisia ‘s President decorated her with the “Commandeur de l’ordre de la Republique Tunisienne. “ In 1995, she became a “Chevalier de l’ordre du mérite” of France. In 2006 she received the Golden Dido award, the highest distinction awarded to a woman in Tunisia, for her contribution to Tunisia ‘s cultural influence in the world. Menchari was also encouraged by her family, who were very progressive. In fact Menchari came from a long line of headstrong woman. Her grandmother was one of the first Tunisian women to remove the veil in public, and began lecturing and educating Tunisian women about their rights.

Her attention to detail and use of exotic materials bring crowds of on lookers who come back year after year enjoy the art.
