A COMMITED CREATOR
EVERY PIECE IS CREATED BY MARION WATERKEYN HERSELF, IN HER WORKSHOP IN PARIS
After graduading from the "Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne" in Paris, she worked with various designers such as Isabel Marant in Paris and Emernegildo Zegna in London. In 2018 she decides to create her own clothing brand and specializes in flexible clothing.
With her unique and living creations, she hopes to open up everyone’s own creativity by revealing them to their own beauty.
SCHOOL OF LA CHAMBRE SYNDICALE DE LA COUTURE PARISIENNE
UNIQUE DESIGN OR LIMITED SERIES
INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS SUCH AS MY BAG SKIRT AND THE CAPE SKIRT
So Marion decides to create only unique designs or limited series of 3 to 5 copies maximum. Creation of wedding dresses, evening dresses, stage costumes for artists, innovative concepts such as « My bag skirt », " The cape skirt " and « The sculpture dress ».
Each design is created by Marion Waterkeyn herself, in her studio in Paris. She uses haute-couture techniques to make her models. Marion wants to be a craftswoman and an artist.
HAUTE COUTURE TECHNIQUE
She creates each model alone from A to Z: from the initial idea, to the finishes realized by hand, by passing through the design of the model, the design of the canvas and the pattern, the calculation of the precise film of the fabric (calculation to the nearest to avoid the waste), the search for materials and supplies, the cutting of fabric, the assembly of the model. No activity is outsourced and its entire production is artisanal.
The Importance of fabrics for Marion Waterkeyn
Noble fabrics: rarity, luxury and respect for the environment.
Marion prefers French-made fabrics (those of Malhia Kent) some of which are produced in very small quantities.
She also reuses the ends of Haute Couture fabric rolls, used first-hand by famous designers such as Sonia Rykiel, Lanvin or Emmanuel Ungaro.
Very often, she brings back “heartbreak” fabrics during her trips to the United States, England, Italy…
Responsible designer, she recovers fabric scraps to make patchworks, small bags or even headbands.
