Why did you choose to go into fashion?

I first chose creation because it became a way of expressing myself, and fashion, more specifically, because I wanted to sublimate women and make mink.

Can you describe your creative universe to us?

My creative universe constitutes materials, volumes, and details. My shapes are structured by mixing noble and delicate materials, with other techniques. My style is underlined by zip and gold details. I pay a lot of attention to detail and to the ennoblement of materials. To this I should add my staple colours: black and gold.

What are your sources of inspiration?

My sources of inspiration are numerous: Parisian architecture, lines, materials, art, large couture fashion houses, but also music and technology that are synonymous with the current cultural climate. The top models and the blog La Mode Est Une Femme are also a source of inspiration and emotion to me. Inspiration is everything.  

How do you go about making your pieces?

The pieces are made by hand and produced exclusively in Paris. They are each the object of great attention. Each piece is made as if it were the first time. This way of thinking was inspired by Eric Charles Donatien former plumassier from Chanel from the time I used to work with feathers. 

Can you give us a few words about your collaboration with MonDéfilé?

The collaboration with  MonDéfilé is truly exciting because it is a very beautiful and interesting project in which I have been invited to participate. They are also a great team, who help, advise, and really encourage young designers.

If you could be a piece of clothing or an accessory what would you be?

I would be a garment, more specifically a jacket. For me, the jacket is the only accessory garment. In effect, it can complete an outfit, sophisticate it, or create it. It can elevate it without masking it, which is the duty of an accessory. I would be both: an accessory garment. 

"My universe is Parisian and delicate, precise yet strong."
