Since Ilbert Sanchez launched Garçon Couture with his college roommate and business partner, Jean Gilbert Francillon, the duo has positioned the brand as the go-to source for dapper debonaire menswear. Speaking with "Hip Hop and Enterprise" Sanchez explains how he and Francillon combined their knack for entrepreneurship and style to stake a claim in the luxury fashion industry. Sanchez, a Honduran, and Haitian-born Francillon tap into each of their cultural roots when crafting the vibrant tailored pieces seen on Emmy red carpets and star-studded celebrity weddings. From styling Hollywood stars like Omari Hardwick, Caleb McLaughlin, and Rotimi, to amplifying the Black love that was on display at Danielle Brooks' recent wedding, and even putting together an original piece for the dancing weather man Fox 46 Nick, Garcon Couture take an inclusive approach to their Black luxury brand.
