From the ties, it transpired to blouses for women with one style, one color (all white) and one size. The success of their effort has led to opening their first company, MGA or Maurice, Georges and Armand. Their first store was in Bandol, in an old fish store on the side street back in 1973. They keep doing blouses and began manufacturing dresses the same as they did with blouses, one style, one size but with different prints and fabrics. They keep making pants and then moved on to jeans. They began selling stonewashed jeans in 1976 while managing 20 stores already. Get more ideas here at
