Pascale Théard, was born and raised in in Port-au-Prince and at the age of 14, chose to continue her studies in Paris, France. Her life bears the mark of a dual culture. From her father, a Haitian art connoisseur, she was surrounded by painters and artists, Pascale was deeply touched by the mysterious country of Haiti and its creativity. From her French mother, whose family’s leather factory was established in 1827, she inherited the love for beautifully tanned leather and the wonderful “savoir-faire” that transforms simple animal leather.
Fascinated by the magic of leather and artistry, she discovered at a very early age a passion for shoes and their complex structures. In 2008 she created her brand eponymous Pascale Theard Creations” where she designs her footwear, bags and leather accessories. She admires Haitian artisans whose unique “know how” comes right in tune with her vision when it comes to the concepts and ambiance she tries to create through her work, making it natural for her to collaborate with them.
