PARIS — An association of ex-Lejaby lingerie workers and one entrepreneur, after launching a Facebook appeal to raise funds to create a high-end lingerie factory near Lyon earlier this year, is close to its goal and set to begin recruiting 25 seamstresses Wednesday, before training them and starting production early next year.
Les Atelières, an association created by communications executive Muriel Pernin and a group of ex-Lejaby workers, has raised 60,000 euros, or $78,700 at current exchange, in donations through its appeal, theassociation announced on its Facebook page. “This gives us strong hope to succeed in raising the 100,000 euros ($131,000) we wished for before the end of the year,” Les Atelières wrote.
