Event Details

Pierre-Alexis Dumas is the Artistic Director of Hermès. Under his direction, the firm has seen its biggest growth in decades, with sales of 4 billion euros in 2014.

In 1991, Dumas spent eight months in the factory managed by a branch of the Ratti family in Como, Italy, where silk has been spun since the 19th century. While there, he was introduced to aspects of engraving for printed textile, dyeing, and pattern design, particularly for women's fashion.

In 1992, Dumas joined the Hermès Group at the family firm's headquarters in Paris, and then was involved with the development of new products by silversmiths Puiforcat (founded in 1830) and crystal manufacturer St. Louis (founded in 1586) both Hermès acquisitions.  He joined Hermès HK from 1993 to 1998, and opened distribution in mainland China opening the first store in Beijing in 1997. He then joined Hermès UK from 1998 to 2002 as Managing Director. In 2002, he returned to Paris to work on product development with Jean-Louis Dumas and was nominated Artistic Director in 2005. In 2008, Dumas created Fondation d'Entreprise Hermès, which supports art entrepreneurs around the world.

 Since January 2016 he has served as the Chairman of the Decorate Arts Museum in Paris.
