" I’ve been a designer for over 10 years now, and I’m still motivated by the same passion. Because each day, thanks to people like me, the sketch of a clothing item can come to life.
From a simple sketch, I interpret what the stylist is trying to say; I imagine how each part of the item will be assembled; I give advice on the cutting so that it flatters the person wearing the clothing (no matter their figure, sometimes all it takes is a well-drawn line to “cheat”, like with makeup) but also—and above all—so that he or she feels good in the item and can move as they want to within. I draw up patterns and measurement tables.
This is often how I talk about my job, to be simple: if you like an item of clothing, then the stylist has done a good job; if the item fits you well and is comfortable, then I’ve done a good job. "
" I have a wonderful memory of a hike through Yosemite (USA). Simply because, upon arriving at the lake, with the transparent water, the evergreens, and the mountains, I could have sworn I was in Canada. And I thought to myself just how crazily beautiful it was, and that I’d never imagined that California could look like that. And there were chipmunks, and squirrels…
In France in Haute Savoie, I particularly love the Lac Blanc hike from the col des Montets. It’s a magnificent trail with incredible views of the Aiguille Verte and the Mont Blanc chain. There are even some fun little passages with ladders, so you feel like a real adventurer. And there’s often the opportunity to observe local wildlife (which is really cool) like groundhogs or mountain goats. "
