ABOUT US

Paris Mode was established nearly 30 years ago (1st April 1986) by Madeleine Petit and Bernard Thiesson.

Madeleine and Bernard wanted to bring Parisian Fashion to Australia. The company at its beginning was selling only hair accessories. It has been growing ever since, and now carries a wide range of French Fashion products.

 

1986: Birth of Paris Mode in Surry Hills.

Within two weeks, Madeleine creates the first hair accessories collection, comprising mostly hair bows and head bands. Bernard presents the collection to one of the major Australian fashion retailer. The success is instant, the client places an order of $35,000; but this order must be delivered within two weeks.

Mission impossible! A plan of action is drawn. Madeleine and her daughter Ivonne are in charge of the manufacturing while Bernard tags the items and pack the order. It goes on for two weeks non stop at an average of 18 hours a day, and finally the order is delivered on time!

           

 

August 1986: Madeleine and Bernard fly to France and secure the support of the best manufacturers of hand made hair accessories. On their return, they present the collection to the Australian leading department store David Jones. Again the success is immediate and Paris Mode has been supplying the store ever since.
