Sewing technique

After a year of studying fine arts, I went on to study design at the Berçot studio.

Finding my voice in working with materials, I quickly continued my apprenticeship, concentrating mainly on moulding techniques by following various courses in toilism/modelling, flou/tailleur sewing, embroidery and corsetry during evening classes and then at the Chambre Syndicale de la couture in Paris.

In parallel, I worked for 10 years in the workshops during fashion shows for various haute couture houses such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Lanvin, Alexander Mc Queen, Mr. Pearl, Mugler, Chanel, Dior, Alaïa... as a fabric worker, retoucher, finisher, highly qualified first hand.

As a freelancer, I also make costumes for the cinema, sets and textile art.

For the past 7 years, I have dedicated myself to the transmission of these skills in fashion schools.
