> Dominique Assenat - Head of Beauty & Colors, PeclersParis

With a bachelor’s degree in English and a strong inclination for movies, film imagery and adaptation, Dominique Assénat begins her career in Los Angeles. Spurred by the American entrepreneurial spirit and endowed with a fine sense of creativity, she launches a highly successful collection of handbags. For over a year, Dominique adopts the “made in the USA” business model, an experience which infuses her with an unfailing fondness for the country, and its business acumen, sharpening her knowledge of how markets work. She returns to Paris in the early 80s to expand her leather goods collection which is sold at Kashiyama, Victoire, etc. Looking for new experiences that involve teamwork and sharing expertise, she decides to work for a key designer of the period, Anne-Marie Beretta, where she refines her love of fabrics and colors. Recruited in 1987 by the Fashion Director at that time, Dominique begins working for PeclersParis as the head of the textile and accessories department. She spends many years providing her prospective insight to the agency’s two main departments: colors and fabrics. Now in charge of the Colors, Beauty & Cosmetics and Accessories Department, Dominique also heads one of the PeclersParis fundamentals: the Colors trend book. Her creative vision is essential to this task which involves the fine-tuning of 45 exclusive, specially crafted colors, with her team, every season, laying the foundations for all the agency’s publications. Her broad vision across all markets and uncanny ability for abstraction have made her a shrewd observer of the evolution of international markets and how they interact (the emergence of Asian markets and strong demand for color from China have had a major influence on European and American designers).
