Marie-Claire Barban studied Applied Art and has a “BTS” diploma in Clothing Design and a “CAP” diploma in fashion and hat-making. Having completed her studies, she completed a placement in the Paris boutique “Vénus et Neptune”, where she discovered a real passion and vocation for making hats. In 1987, she opened her own shop and workshop in Paris’ 11th arrondissement. Two years later, she took on her first employee, then a second and a sales rep to promote her hats. The premises gradually changed, as did the workforce. In 1996, she left Paris for Corrèze to give her children and her husband Gérard, who has the same passion for hats, a better quality of life. In recognition of her know-how, Marie-Claire Barban was elected in 2000 as “One of France’s Best Workers” and, in 2009, the company was awarded the “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Enterprise) label. Since then, Chéri Bibi has continued to grow and now has 18 employees in Combressol, Corrèze, who make hats and head accessories for the great names in haute-couture and also produce a line under the Chéri Bibi trademark which is sold in sixty shops in France and abroad. There’s a reason why Chéri Bibi works with ten of the great French haute-couture houses for fashion shows and magazine features. From the single model to large-scale production for luxury shops all over the world, know-how is the key the success of Marie-Claire Barban’s team.
