After fashion, the designer creates Makaya Chocolat, and adds a new string to his bow, becoming master chocolatier.
Ralph Leroy is an eclectic man. A Haitian by birth and an adoptive Montrealers, this versatile designer and jewelry designer has made a name for himself in Montréal’s very exclusive fashion scene.
Since his first collection for men in 2009, he continues the collections and creativity. Five years later, and a growing recognition, he returned to his country of origin, a place of inspiration and opened his studio loft in 2015.
From fashion to chocolate, there was only one step. Ralph Leroy first made it in 2009 at the invitation of the Montreal Chocolate Show, where he created a fashion show with chocolate accessories every year until 2013.
But it’s on his return to Haiti that this aesthetic inspiration will become a chocolate passion: in its terroir, that of cocoa, chocolate is obvious, Ralph Leroy wants and will make chocolate.
