Authentifier.com, independent appraisal service for second-hand fashion items.

The start-up authenticate.com

A former retail executive, Alain specializes in optimizing the flow of goods and operational marketing actions sold to suppliers. He left this environment to support his wife Anne-Marie, antique dealer from father to daughter since 1927, heiress of the Chaussavoine house in Rennes. During the various successions, he became aware of the weight of fashion items, accessories and leather goods. He therefore organizes himself so that the house can detect counterfeits.
He collects information, documents himself, makes contact with lawyers and acquires knowledge to, in all humility of course, but in a significant way, detect counterfeit articles on photos. In 2011 Alain launched a beta version of the “authentifier.com” portal and registered the brand name. In 2016 he took over the project, formed a team and created a legal structure "Jules" SAS in homage to the first name of the creator of the Chaussavoine house.
