Skills

La coupe directe sur mannequin est mon principal outils de travail. Pour moi, l'atelier est un laboratoire de recherche. Chaque pièce que je crée exprime une nouvelle avancée vers le futur, vers le jamais vu, le jamais fait, le jamais porté. J'ai toujours tendu mes efforts vers quelque chose qui n’exite pas. Si vous revendiquez, comme moi, un atypisme explorateur du vêtement, si vous êtes soucieux de rester unique dans votre créativité et vous vous préocupez de travailler avec des gens qui partagent vos valeurs, alors je vous invite à nous connaître.
