Clarisse Reille is passionate about fashion and its people. And she is directly involved in making sure French fashion companies have the means to grow. Above all else, Reille, the head of Defi (France’s Committee for the Development and Promotion of Apparel), the state body that funds the development and evolution of the French fashion industry, has a clear vision about the most urgently needed changes. Defi directly funds fashion design competitions, company digitalisation projects and the guides to responsible sourcing published by the industry’s various associations.

In the latest LuxurynsightXFashionNetwork podcast (in French), Reille voices her opinion about the role of state support and describes her career as a staunch defender of French fashion.

Reille lists in plain language the most urgent challenges facing fashion labels and companies, from funding issues to investment in digital tools. Always busy trying to whisper into the right ears within the French government, Reille also warns that fashion must not miss out in the post-Covid 19 recovery.
