WE ARE CRAFTSMEN … ” IN ART THE CONSTRAINT IS A TOOL TO GO FURTHER…CREATION OFTEN COMESFROM THERE. “ Christian Lacroix If I mention Christian Lacroix, is that I believe he represents the Couture as I conceive it. Our profession is primarily a work of artist and craftsmen . Couture is born in the“Heart “ of the workshop …And that’s how I work … Each collection is a newstory we write with the “Thread of the Needle” . Since I started, I make myself, most of my prototypes ….Molding, via the pattern design, to finishing. Also I supervise each project from the workshop. I have a rule: “Never ask to my team to do what I can not do myself,and work in respect of the other” I always have a real pleasure unceasingly renewed, to unfold the fabric , playing with the bias ,and the thread … and then to finalize every detail … I do not find my inspiration in magazines or on the web , but through my life experiences and my travels. You do not become designer by showing … but looking carefully …listening …. passionately … Our profession is in perpetual movement of life and color to the one who has captured the essence.
