You can get an idea and go to vote for the one you have chosen.
1) I always wanted to work in fashion since I was little because I always loved to dress well, and I never found exactly what I wanted. Moreover, when my grandmother was young, she used to create her own clothes which gave me the envy to do the same thing and to share it with the others!
2) Art Baccalauréat in Perpignan, then 3 years of specialty women modelisme in ESMOD school and some internships : Kenzo, Misappropriation of Fashion. I was also the winner of a competition car for the Exterior and interior design of a Daihatsu car.
3) My artistic world
I love the attics of my grandmother's where I find inspiration. I love knitting and creating my own materials. My universe is romantic, melancholic, light, airy, unfinished and craft, but always with memories of my childhood ...
The highlight of the collection is the mixing of materials such as mesh with the fabric and leather.
I use noble materials such as silk, leather, wool, cashmere ... The strength of the collection is also that everything is handmade, dyeing through knitting, painting on silk, or hand embroidery.
Now, I think I said everything ! I’ll let you discover my creations in the hope that they will captivate you ....
The collection :
The collection is called "sweet melancholy ..."
I was inspired by Marie Laurencin, old books for the overlapping tissue, my grandmother’s attics, English gardens, large knitted protective dusty old by the time, the 1900 lingerie corset caches and that Pantys mixing with crochet cotton.
My collection has a soul because of the unfinished style of the clothes with the frayed edges so they have a poetic eton give the impression that they have lived.
My muse is Louise Brooks because of her modern look which gave her graphic physic.
My range of color is fresh and exciting at the same time beacause it always look aged by time.
I want my clothes to have their own stories that is why everything is done by craftsmen, dyeing fabrics, through handmade embroidery, silk painting, knitting ...
I love all the parts but i preferred the knited ones.
