The creative philosophy, dedicated to the improvement of femininity and the natural beauty of each woman is expressed through the refined and glamorous style. The illusion of each new design is wrapped in his passion for beauty and quality.


Where have the Parisian Ateliers of all their lives gone that our mothers and grandmothers used to go?
Today we live in a digital world where the direct and personalized deal with the client seems to be the exception to the norm. The Ateliers of Haute Couture have been left behind, where a professional of the sewing personally advised the client throughout the entire creative process.
It is increasingly common for the designer to intervene only in the first and / or last stage of the creative process. Why? As if being a Modist was a “old fashioned” profession compared to that of Designer …
I honestly do not understand … The truly exciting part of our profession as dressmakers-designers is to participate in each stage of the creative process: from the creation of design as fashion designers to the elaboration of the dress as dressmakers enjoying every detail, decision and emotion with the client.
Atelier is a French word and means workshop. It is mainly applied to artists’ studios and sewing workshops. In short, to sites where a meticulous work is carried out whose result is unique and personalized “.
I am proud to be a small Atelier in the Haute Couture world, otherwise I could not enjoy what I admire most in my profession: advise and personally treat my clients from start to finish in all stages of the creative process to be able to achieve excellence in the quality of designed dresses.


…When your daughter tells you, after many years of efforts, studies and careers focused in another direction, that her life is creation and art, and that her dream is to learn and share with you your profession and passion for her as a third generation of the signature; Sincerely, it is one of the happiest and most satisfying things that could have happened to me. After many years between seams with my mother, to move forward a business that I have dedicated and dedicate a large part of my life, share my profession with what really gives meaning to her: my children, is the best gift that as a mother and designer I can get. I am happy to be able to enjoy each day of my two great passions: FASHION and my FAMILY.

My Beginnings

I do not remember exactly when I began to develop my creative spirit … but I always felt that the arts united me in a very special way with my mother and that the artistic would play an important role in my life.

I started with the world of music at four years old. No wonder my passion for music; He has always had and continues to have a very important role in my mother’s family. His father, my grandfather, was a brilliant composer musician.

Playing the piano and singing gave me discipline, but above all and most importantly, they taught me how to capture the sensations that surround any applied art. With the piano I started to flow, create and feel … Composing became my way of expressing my emotions. Each note gave me a different feeling and idea. In short, with the piano I began to feel and shape my ideas and emotions.

Later, my passion for painting and design in general came. At the end of classes, I ran and ran to be “between seams” with my mother. Literally, when I arrived at the Atelier I would stand behind the door to listen to her and see the passion with which she exercised her profession. I was transporting what I call “the world of the child artist” and I played to create by experimenting and experimenting without limits. With this I learned to see beyond, to escape all limits and to focus on the truly authentic. In short, I learned to capture the essence of people and discovered that in the world splendid treasures are bubbling. As Jean-Jacques Rousseau quotes: “The world of reality has its limits, the world of imagination is infinite.”

Finally, the Modistry and Pattern Making have given me the necessary base to be able, technically, to shape my ideas and translate them into the client’s body. With the traditional methods of dressmaking and pattern making I have learned to balance the concepts within the creative world, as well as to pay attention to the details of the meticulous, artisan, delicate and absolutely perfect work of haute couture.

They say that artists are born, they do not become … I say: “Art brings things to light. It illuminates us. It sheds light on the darkness that is in us. It projects a luminous ray over the heart of our shadows and says, see? “
