FASHION - INTERVIEW

Success is hidden in the details, and the secret of style is the choice of accessories. Accurately selected accessories can take your style to the next level. Quentin & Jean-Baptiste Gaveau brothers followed their passion for fashion. The first step was to design and produce colorful braided belts. And now, they produce many different colorful accessories and offer them to their customers. I talked with Jean-Baptiste Gaveau, Co-Founder of BILLYBELT, to learn more about BILLYBELT that started with the design of the colorful braided belt.
