In his own opinion, women who are "committed lesbians" or "voluptuous" with "very prominent hips and a very flat chest" are better off not wearing the brand's signature bandage dresses, a look popular amongst celebrities all over the world.

Hervé Léger  took to social media to dissociate the brand from the distributors interview in a statement below:

"The Herve Leger by Max Azria brand and its parent company, BCBGMAXAZRIA Group, are shocked and appalled by Patrick Couderc's comments made in the Mail on Sunday. BCBGMAXAZRIA Group is working in concert with MJH Fashion, the London-based licensee of the Herve Leger brand, to investigate and establish appropriate next steps. The statements made by Mr. Couderc are not a reflection of Herve Leger by Max Azria or MJH Fashion ideals or sentiments. The Herve Leger by Max Azria brand celebrates sensuality, glamour and femininity without discrimination".

Following the official statement, the brand announced that Couderc who doubles as BCBG licensee's managing director is no longer associated with the company.
