While still a dancer at the Ballets De Monte Carlo, Christophe Ridet discovered his creative talents when he started making dancewear for his wife and fellow dancer, Elisabeth Miegge. Christophe soon realized that this hobby could be the beginning of a new career. And thus in 1990, he created the brand name Wear Moi for his rapidly increasing dancewear collection.
In 1992, having moved to Seattle, USA, with Elisabeth, Christophe gave up dancing in order to devote all his time and energy to building up the Wear Moi brand. During the following nine years, Wear Moi Dancewear became increasingly respected by professional dancers worldwide. When Elisabeth decided to retire from dancing, it seemed natural that she should join Christophe in the further development of Wear Moi.
In 2001, they seized the opportunity and returned the Wear Moi operations to their native France, from where they distribute worldwide to a steadily increasing number of dancewear retailers.
