In 1986, François Damide left his hometown of Caudry, France to fulfill the American Dream, becoming CEO of the US branch of Solstiss & Bucol, the French Haute Couture lace and Hermès silk manufacturer. Thanks to twenty years’ experience designing and producing custom-made patterns, textures, colors and embellishments for designers such as Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta, he acquired the skill to translate an idea into an expertly-designed, finished product. When he became President of the US subsidiary of Arthes Fragrance Group, François discovered all facets of the fragrance world from scent creation to product development, manufacturing, marketing and distribution. His new-found love for the perfume industry, coupled with his fashion design and craftsmanship expertise, gave birth to Crafting Beauty in 2010.
Since its inception, Crafting Beauty has collaborated with Master Perfumers such as Ralf Schwieger, Christophe Laudamiel, and Bertrand Duchaufour in the creation and production of unique fragrance products for brands including Natalie Fragrance, Bobby Jones, The Vagabond Prince, L’Arganique Beauté, Jouany, New London Pharmacy and L’Olivier among many others.
