‘Crossed paths’ collection — 2016
‘Crossed paths’ is designed with the aim of creating clothing with different materials other than textiles. Research on different ways of assembling the crosses helped me create dresses, skirts, and tops with a modular quality : they can be changed and transformed freely by cutting, opening and adding crosses. This collection is at the crossroads of the past and the future… jackets made of old jeans and more futuristic clothing made from admittedly recycled, yet more modern materials, remind us of lace through their assembly… lace for the future… futuristic mesh. This mesh is a protected trademark and no reproduction is authorized.

‘Pop fiction’ collection — 2016
Designed for the ‘Talons Aiguilles’ competition, the ‘pop fiction’ theme inspired me to create a textile-free collection. All the materials used are assembled, glued and juxtaposed.
Award: April 2016 : Accessories prize at the ‘Talons Aiguilles’ competition in Lille, France.
‘Wrap my bag’ — 2017
Working in partnership with Ideal Felt, a belgian felt supplier, I decided to create a collection of pouches backpacks designed through folding, with minimal waste and sewing. Starting with a strip of felt, the result is a finished product with minimal production steps. They each have several pockets. A technique was developed in order to give the felt the appearance of leather.
