PARIS — The Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode, French fashion’s top governing body, announced Wednesday that the Chambre Syndicale for ready-to-wear has elected four companies as new members.

The federation also said that the Chambre Syndicale of ready-to-wear’s executive board has unanimously elected as its new president Ralph Toledano, president of Puig’s fashion division. He replaces Guillaume de Seynes, Hermès International’s managing director, who became the association’s vice president along with Jean-Marc Loubier, Sonia Rykiel’s chairman.
