Garance is a lingerie and swimsuits line adapted for after breast cancer surgeries, created by Cécile Pasquinelli Vu-Hong. In 2010 she is hit by breast cancer. During 18 months of treatment, she loses her hair, her eyelashes, her eyebrows, her feminity and feels even worst when she cannot find any swimsuit: she does not like any design as they are old fashioned and sold only as orthepedics products.
In 2012, she decides to launch Garance. It is the only french brand, created for women hit by cancer.
Garance is now distributed on the brand’s website, in a boutique in Paris, on the La Redoute website, in some orthopedics shops and in a few Monoprix shops.
