The first brand is Hermes. Hermes is a French high fashion luxury goods manufacturer.
The first designer is Thierry Hermes. In 1827, He moved to Pont Audemer, north of Paris, where
he learned the trade of leather making, and begins making harnesses. And the next 10 year, He

reason that customer want to buy them is because of the long history of them and many
celebrities buy them. To be more precise, today a lot of people like to follow the celebrities.
Moreover, the demand of the leader bag like Birkin Bag is high because they make very less
amount of it and all of them are all handmade. It takes the artisans so long to create one. There
just isn’t enough supply. That’s why it’s nearly impossible to just be able to walk into an Hermès
shop, and walk out with a luxury leader bag. At some point, there was even a five-to-six year-
long wait list. That’s why a lot of women and men come to. To summary, Hermes have a long
