Holidays in Provence, South of France

Picking blackberries, baking lemon cakes, preparing gaspacho, finding the skin of a grasshopper…

The “Oeillet ” silhouette -  Summer 2014, Personal creation

I used a soft and light bluemarine wool to make the high waist pants. And the kimono jasket is made with a satin wool fabric, hand embroidered to create this flower pattern in relief.

Dior, collection 1998

Amazing collection from John Galliano inspired from the French fashion designer master Paul Poiret.

Paul Poiret started his career working for the fashion house Doucet and then for Frederic Worth between 1898-1902. He opened his own house in 1903 and is now considered a precursor of the Art Deco period.

He was also the 1st one with Madeleine Vionnet to suppress the “corset” from feminine silhouette, long before Coco Chanel.

Dress “Jonquille" , Bloo Pattern, spring 14

Here is another of my personal creation. I used an Italian silk with this daffodil pattern, to create a simple floral dress, very much inspired by the spirit of the fifties, with a shorter lenght however, to make it modern.

Dress “Clématite”, Bloo Pattern, summer 14.

I used a white linen painted with silver, and a mousseline silk from Chloé.
