LVMH's chairman and CEO held a "brisk" shareholders' meeting, where he highlighted the fashion house's solid showing last year. WWD reports: "Profits more than doubled to 85 million euros, or $118.4 million, as sales in its own stores advanced 28 percent." Arnault also mentioned Dior J'adore's staying power as France's best-selling perfume.
