Hervé Léger was founded in 1985 by the designer Hervé Peugnet. The same year Karl Lagerfeld advised Peugnet that his surname Peugnet would be too difficult to pronounce for Americans and instead suggested the surname Léger.
In September 1998, Hervé Léger was acquired by the BCBG Max Azria Group from the Seagram's Group. This was the first-ever acquisition of a French couturier by an American designer.
In April 2007, Max Azria relaunched the Hervé Léger brand under his own design direction which was offered at select department stores.
In 2008, Max Azria presented the Hervé Léger by Max Azria collection during the Autumn-Winter 2008 New York Fashion Week.
Hervé Léger stores can be found in various international locations.
