Henri is a fashion designer from New York City. He launched his career in the 1980’s. He received his fashion design education at Fashion Institute Technology in New York. His designs were well known and sold at better department and specialty stores. These stores included Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. His designs were carried in many boutiques around the world to include the US, Canada and South America. He continued to design and manufacture his lines in Los Angeles, CA from the early 90’s until late 1999.
Coming to El Paso in early 2000 Henri felt that the city needed to expand their culture of fashion education.
With his knowledge of fine women’s fashion he created Versailles Boutique and has since been providing
El Paso with European and New York level of fashion.

"Dear Mr. Rafael,
Thank you for the beautiful fringed shawl. Adair Margo passed along your gift, and I am delighted to receive it. It's perfect for the cold weather we are having in Washington.
You are kind to think of me, and I appreciate your generosity.
With best wishes,
