Aline, designer of clothes and accessories in fake fur.
Posted On 30 september 2019
After a productive summer, I am back at the same time as the rain, the cold and shorter days... But don't panic ! Here is a photo shoot with a designer that will warm you up a little !
I am taking you at Aline, a designer of clothes and accessories in fake fur !
It illustrate perfectly one of my greatest pleasure to work with small creators : meeting people so personally invested in their brand, that they transposed their beliefs into the company for causes that are important for them !
This is the case with Aline, who, invested in defending animals rights, used this as a central theme in her production. Her wish is to create as ethical and responsible as possible. She's been working for years in collections that allies quality, elegance and militancy ! Feed by varied inspiration, she built a rich, warm and generous universe. She succeeded an audacious bet : making you wear her ideas with an unequalled refinement !
Accompanied by Bobette, queen of photo-bombing, with whom she's inseparable, I let you with Aline's few words :
My name is Aline : first name that will give rise to my brand's name.
I have been living in Lille for 10 years now (with Bobetthe my little adopted dog to LPA, 7 years ago!), since I graduated from ESMOD in Roubaix where I passed a Stylist/modelist certificate. I knew I wanted to go to this school since I was 11...^^ I have always dreamed about it and immediately after I got my baccalaureate literature I choose this path and school.
School teach us to draw, create, imagine and realise our clothes... We learn to use different fabrics and it's such a choc when we come up to real fur. Because in fashion's world (10 years ago anyway, because today mentalities are changing) fur is a noble fabric and it's unimaginable to create a clothe in fake fur...! This year in question, during the creation of my first coat, I hold steady and found my first supplier in fake fur : high quality and very soft. The coat was loved by the public and director. I am proud I didn't cede !
After school, I have decided to create a canine brand in fake fur.. I know ! For our doggy friends ! I was offering coats, cushions, bandanas... It was working pretty well but not enough to win to loyalty of a clientele. So I choose to head for women's fashion, I specialized in accessories : chapkas, scarf, snoods... today I am also creating clothes : jackets, capes, cardigan...
When I am not in my workshop ? I am walking Bobette, dancing, watching movies and cooking !
I am lucky to have my workshop at home.. In the flat next door
