ONLINE RESALE PLATEFORM OF FABRICS AND LEATHERS SURPLUS FROM EXCLUSIVE MAISONS DE COUTURE

Nona-Source is the first online resale platform which re-values deadstock fabrics and leathers from the most exclusive French Maisons de Couture. Nona Source allows Creatives to easily access high-quality materials whilst encouraging the Creative Re-use of existing resources.

Story

Nona Source is a committed start-up serving the creative community, and dedicated to a new form of fashion.

The company was born out of happy encounters. It all started when Romain, an expert in material purchasing and manufacturing at Givenchy and Kenzo, first discovered the "sleeping beauties", those high-quality fabrics stored in Couture Houses' warehouses. He immediately saw the opportunity of giving them a new lease of life by boosting their creative potential through a resale platform. Thanks to DARE, LVMH's intrapreneurial program, an incubator for new projects to transform ideas into concrete solutions, a second key encounter took place in 2019: Romain met Marie, an expert in materials and environmental coordinator at Kenzo, and Anne, digital transformation manager at LVMH.

Their shared passion and commitment to a new fashion model brought them together to bring the project to life. Since 2020 and with the support of LVMH's Environmental Development Direction, the team has worked full-time to develop this solution.

The Nona Myth

Nona is one of the three Parcae goddesses of Roman mythology, symbols of human destiny and the necessary change. Nona spins the thread of life, Decima weaves it and Morta cuts it.

Commitment

A committed and environmentally responsible company, Nona Source lays the foundations for a circular fashion model. In this, it echoes LVMH's commitment towards the environment through the group's LIFE 360 program (LIFE: LVMH Initiatives For The Environment).

Designed for Creative Talents by materials’ sourcing experts from LVMH, Nona Source offers professionals from the Fashion and Design industries the opportunity to purchase exclusive materials at a competitive price, and in stock-service.

The platform offers an innovative digital sourcing experience, with high-resolution digital display. Nona Source works in close collaboration with Designers to best characterize and render the texture of fabrics on offer, as well as find the best digital translation of the "Touch & Feel" sourcing experience.
