PARIS — Ralph Toledano has been reelected president of the Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode. The president of Puig’s fashion division has held the post since 2014, when he succeeded Didier Grumbach who remains honorary president.

At the meeting, the management board, which consists of 18 members, ranging from the chief executive officers of Christian Dior and Chanel fashion to the independent designer Isabel Marant, was also reelected. It has two newcomers: Michael Burke, Louis Vuitton chief executive and Nicolas Santi-Weil, Ami’s chief executive officer.
