The family; it is at the centre of Clémence Dru’s universe. The sun around which her world turns, personally but also professionally. Co-founder of Côme Éditions, a unique fashion adventure that was dreamed up hand-in-hand with her brother Matthieu 5 years ago whilst sitting on their parents’ bed (you couldn’t make that up could you!), the Parisian lady gave birth to her second baby 14 months ago. Noa. Three little letters that turned the young Mum’s life upside down, and that of her flourishing business. Three letters; a parenthesis that enabled her to re-think the basic principles of her brand, supported by the “Talents de la Fédération du Prêt-à-porter” programme. A fundamental encounter, enriching her life as others have done previously. And the least we can say is that she has been well rewarded. Her ambassadors, including the screenwriter Noémie Saglio, her sister the artist and writer Marie-Virginie Dru, her mother, and a whole host of friends and regular customers like the actresses Camille Cottin and Léa Seydoux, ensure that Côme Éditions is becoming known internationally, whilst behind the scenes, ethical issues are addressed with the help of exceptional partners. Like in Dakar, where some of the brand’s best-sellers are embroidered by women in hardship, but also in Paris, where they are designed and stitched with a desire to always go further. An allusion to Kosmos, which was an inspiration to Clémence and Matthieu in the earliest days of their adventure. From the Greek word meaning the Universe, harmony and balance, to which Côme Éditions owes its name.
