Longchamp was founded in Paris in 1948 by Jean Cassegrain. The company is still owned and run by the Cassegrain family. Diversified into luggage, handbags and accessories, Longchamp has asserted its fashion credentials with high-profile advertising campaigns, the creation of internationally desirable It-bags and the launch of complete shoes and ready-to-wear collections. Combining craftsmanship and innovation, Longchamp owns more than 236 exclusive boutiques worldwide and is available in more than 1,800 multi-brand stores in 100 countries.

I did have a nice conversation with Fabienne Legrand, France based illustrator and author of "Two Loves Have I, My Handbag and Paris" at Longchamp boutique in New York city. She told me her interesting story about what means to be an illustrator for books, magazines, advertising and author of the new graphic novel.
I was really inspired by her story. Fabienne also told me, that she is really happy about doing what she loves.
