Half-French, half-Argentinian, Fabre grew up in Paris, albeit with a full-fledged Latin American joie de vivre. Her insatiable curiosity about the world led her to a career in the hospitality industry, where she spent 20 years in various sales and marketing roles. In her current role as international sales director, her convivial nature lends a personal touch when engaging the brand’s clients, while her love of travel and culture increasingly lends itself to design inspirations for AKAR de NISSIM. She is the spokeperson of AKAR bringing some sensuality and feminity into the brand universe.


French native Richard Le Sand has over 20 years of experience in the design, branding and décor industry, having consulted for many top-tier clients in France.
In 2000, he received 1st prize for his work at MAISON&OBJET in Paris. Le Sand relocated to Singapore in 2008 and established AKAR de NISSIM in 2011 together with his wife Marianne Fabre, thereby fulfilling his dream of designing his own collections and manufacturing the products in-house to ensure a consistently high quality. He is the guardian of both the brand strategy and the brand aesthetics.
