Hi, I am Alice. I am french. After years of experience working in fashion all around the world, I decided to create my own business GALANTE (meaning amorous, romantic, chivalrous but in an elegant way!) in the gorgeous city of Charleston South Carolina where I live with my husband and son.
My company offers a curated collection of luxury apparel and accessories. What I enjoy the most is discovering independent French designers who champion sustainability in their production practices and take the leap to establish themselves to share their designs with collectors. Their entrepreneurial spirit and experience learned from working for some of the most respected fashion houses (Chanel, Hermes, Givenchy, Balmain and Dior, to name a few) are what entice me to work with them.
Here are GALANTE main values:
Nowadays, we live in a world that has become dependent on pure consumption. The more products we can consume the more satisfied we become, leaving the important aspects such as quality, and ethics in the shadows.
For those who hope to change the disturbing trends and reduce consumption, our company is right for you.
Our products are made in the best French workshops with the finest materials (most of these premium materials such as LEATHER are the same used by High End French Fashion Houses). They are also crafted by talented designers that followed a real training in the best french schools.
GALANTE brands do not heavily invest in advertising, therefore what you pay is what we see the exact value of the product to be.
When was the last time you checked the label of a fashion product before purchasing it?
When was the last time that same label did not come from a country that condone child labor and unbearable working conditions?
When was the last time you bought a product from a French brand and the label truly read Made in France?
For those willing to make a difference and have a positive impact on the world we live in, remember to think about the items you are consuming and make better choices.
Our products are made with pristine care and love, without mistreatment of employees throughout any steps of the process.
As opposed to simply seeking a profit our French brands want to share their creations with the rest of the world.
GALANTE brands are in no competition to be better than other brands in the US but offer a subtle twist that will highlight your days in a way related to French lifestyle.
From a stay on the French Riviera with our summer leather sandals, residing in the charming district of Montmartre in an elegant Parisian dress or cycling in the Bordeaux's vineyards with a colorful tote bag full of wine bottles, we have a product that can fit any occasion!
We hope you enjoy shopping with us! You can also visit our boutique at 123 Pitt Street, 29464 Mount Pleasant SC.
