Mei Ling Talibart
Born in Paris in 1983, Mei Ling Talibart has spent over 15 years working in fashion. Beginning her career in the world of couture, assisting French actresses with their fittings, her journey has spanned multiple facets of the industry. She has worked in everything from makeup artistry to supply chain management, and at age 20 moved to Hong Kong to work with fashion industry design and production powerhouse PPR (now known as Kering).
Having spent several years independently laying her own aesthetic foundations, Mei Ling graduated from the esteemed fashion school ESMOD in 2007. Half-French and half-Chinese, Mei Ling draws inspiration from both of her worlds, infusing timeless French chic with a uniquely Asian penchant for bold, modern experimentation. In October 2016, her years of collaboration with international retailers and top creatives culminated in the launch of her own brand: French Allure.
A prêt-à-porter brand, woven from a life of travel, authenticity, and diversity, designed with simplicity and grace, sewn with passion and expertise. A brand that is connected, inventive, contemporary, human, inspired by the diverse styles and cultures that encompass it. A brand that is effervescent, forward-looking, and refined in its modernity.
French Allure is infused with the artistic soul of Paris and the innovative heart of Hong Kong. Our goal is to provide women with fashionable options of the highest quality at an accessible price point.
