PARIS — Ralph Toledano has been elected president of the Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode, opening a new chapter at a governing body that has catapulted Paris to become a preeminent fashion capital.
He succeeds Didier Grumbach, 77, who has headed the federation since 1998, and quietly laid the groundwork for his exit over the past two years. He is to pass the reins officially in September.
