“Couture is alive and well…not just in Paris…but in Los Angeles…in the elegant, sleek headquarters of Magid Bernard…where Michele and Magid Bernard create the kind of clothes one wishes to see more of at L.A.’s Red Carpet occasions. Super European fabrics…designs that are both timely and timeless…impeccable workmanship are the characteristics of the label. These are clothes that are truly kind to the wearer…flatteringly feminine and totally chic at the same time…Fashion as it was meant to be!”

“Marianne Mautner, who lived in Lakewood South (New Orleans) until the storm, now is in Atlanta. But she wouldn’t miss the chance to see the Bernards. ‘I flew in,’ said Mautner, as she was greeted with a hug and a kiss by the designer at the door. ‘I came in for the Saints game, Michele and the holidays. It all worked out.…I have this jacket,’ Mautner said, ‘and every time I wear it, I hear, ‘Oh, that is fabulous. Where did you get it?’ Her clothes are timeless classics.’
~Susan Langenhennig, Fashion Editor, The Times Picayune, New Orleans
