Growing up in the Vosges, the place of the French textile industry, my family introduced me to textiles and design at an early age. But it also broke all my carefree spirit by depriving me of a certain youth. The hyper-sexualisation guiding my every step as a teenager made me aware of the path that remains to be traveled to free society from all these taboos.
I like to mix and match, as if I were on vacation in my old house in the country and had to make up clothes from all the generations of my family. For me, that's style: manage to do with what you find. Sincerely the only limit that we put to the style is the limit itself. My will is to create a new experience of consumption of clothing, to go through a spiritual path in order to find a more reasonable consumption while increasing the dose of pleasure and all this very far from the indiscreet looks.
"The Bordel" seeks to lift the taboos related to sexuality, to the body by creating a new skin. The brothel unveils pieces illustrating the unpronounceable. The wardrobe is lounge, luxurious and twirling with ornaments. The AG woman is no longer a museum piece, part of a caricature of herself. The watchword: insolence. She is powerful by the revelation of her body, by her transformation into an object of desire. It is an emotional, sensory and hedonistic experience.
The impetus for this collection came from my readings, particularly 19th century literature with Nana by Émile Zola, "La dame aux Camélia" by Alexandre Dumas son confronted with my feminine vision. Toulouse-Lautrec has infinitely influenced the lifestyle given to my collection as well as Emma Becker. This one allowed me to approach the subject as a laboratory of femininity.
I simply tried to show that a "whore" is a woman, like the others, we must stop the stigmatisation and the social exclusion of which they are too often victims. This collection is a great story of sound where feminism has no choice to make between women, we must all support each other regardless of our social class, our sexual orientation, our sexual practices or our way of using our body or not using it. I defend the idea that the body is an object of pleasure in its entirety. We must learn to accept it as it is without worrying about the world around us because it is a huge step towards happiness. Beyond the world of prostitution there is a real desire to expose the condition of women in society in its entirety, the brothel is only an image to reflect why it is so difficult to be a woman and assume as such.
