Who are you?

My name is Elisabeth Vervin, I am 27 and I live near Bordeaux. I have always been passionate about art and crafting, and started my artistic “career” as a painter then I did sculpture, mosaic and couture. After art studies, I got a degree in jewellery and created my company in 2009. I spent my time creating unique pieces in silver or in gold, costume jewellery, or repairing broken jewellery. This is when I decided to create my own brand.

Why did you choose to go into fashion?
I have always had an artistic and creative side, and I love fashion, shoes and of course jewellery. I just had to link those two passions to find my dream job! Also, I love crafting; I think it is a great satisfaction to find an idea and actually realize it. I also love noble materials like silver, stones, etc. I think that a nice finery can boost any outfit!

Could you describe to us your creative universe?
My universe is graphic and geometric. I like uncluttered and clean shapes. In parallel, I love trends like punk/rock. I think it is a universe that suits my creations.

What are your sources of inspiration?
I would say anything modern. I always look around me to see what could inspire me. I think about a specific shape, and then I try to transcribe it into a jewel. If I like it, I do it. And if I don’t like it, I simply move on. Sometimes I’ll work on those models again, because some ideas need to be though over!

Could you tell us a couple words about your collaboration with MonDéfilé?
I usually try to work with people who have the same style and concept as a designer, so I thought that working with MonDéfilé could be interesting. Moreover, the team is really nice, so now I just have to hope it will work!

If you were to be a piece of clothing or an accessory, what would you be?
Jewellery? I don’t know, this question is too metaphysical for me!
