Yann Rivoallan has been elected President of the Fédération Française du Prêt à Porter Féminin

During the recent General Assembly on 23 June, the Fédération Française du Prêt à Porter Féminin unanimously voted for Yann Rivoallan as the new president.

Mr Rivoallan, 48 years old and a graduate of the Europe Business School (ESCP), has worked in the fashion and digital sectors for 20 years. He co-created ecommerce specialist The Oz in 2008 and the Everywhere Anytime training company in 2022. For the last six years he has been an administrator for the Syndicat de Paris de la Mode Féminine, and in 2019 he joined the Board of Directors of the Fédération Française du Prêt à Porter Féminin

Mr Rivoallan praised the accomplishments of his predecessor Pierre-François Le Louët, “During the past six years, Mr Le Louët, in conjunction with his Board of Directors and backed by the permanent staff, led significant work to modernise our Fédération. Consequently the FFPAPF strengthened its support of businesses during a period affected by particularly difficult conditions. I’m delighted he has agreed to continue to play a role within the new Board of Directors.”

With assistance from this new Board, Rivoallan has established Fédération priorities for serving businesses. The goals are founded in CSR principles, international activities and the omnichannel approach. He explains, “We will completely digitalise the Fédération and its activities to accelerate interactions with our members and become more efficient and quicker to react.  By bringing together all the industry professionals through physical and virtual meetings, we’ll increase cooperation. Faced with current and future changes, we’ll find all the solutions our members need to stimulate responsible growth.”

The other members of the new executive committee, elected by the Board of Directors, will serve for three years. They are:

Vice-President: Alain Sarfati
Vice-President: Hervé Coulombel
Vice-President: Sophie Pineau
Treasurer: Eric Sprung
