My name is Thierry, founder of FOR8NER.
After more than 12 years in a prestigious luxury group, I decided to create FOR8NER, a fashion, luxury, and social brand.
During my career in the Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie industry, I have had the chance to meet countless talents constantly pursuing excellence in their profession.
To Inspire and make customers dream are the golden rules of this industry, and I must admit that they managed to captivate me and make me feel these emotions.
However, nothing predestined me to be part of such a universe. Paradoxically, I come from a poor and working-class family.
My parents had to flee the genocide in Cambodia in the 1970s and were forced to reinvent themselves from scratch. They took refuge in the city of Besançon in FRANCE, a city already renowned at that time for its watchmaking know-how.
Maybe the sign was there.
So I learned over time that making your dreams come true through hard work, sharing, and benevolence was possible.
FOR8NER was born from this desire to share and celebrate these values through beautiful creations while remaining in a simple and, above all, human approach.
More than a brand, FOR8NER is a symbol, a lifestyle where a cosmopolitan community, open to others, likes to discover and inspire each other.
