As far as I can remember, 4 or 5 years ago, I already adored to draw, I loved pretty things, fashion, to decorate the house, to add my personal touch so to say. Since I was the actress of my imaginary and creative world, I would never get bored and up till now my feelings haven't changed...
Graduated in fashion design from ESMOD Paris school in 1996 after specializing in lingerie, I started in this environment which will strongly mark me, bringing this taste for detail, refinement, finishing, this attraction for beautiful materials and which would influenced my future designs with sensuality.
From there I fully invested myself in ready-to-wear for a young and shifted brand, where I developed a taste for contrasts, rock style and collections with strong identities. Attracted by creation, I decided to take a turn towards accessories and in this environment I discovered a passion for jewelry, accessories and leather in particular.
In order to deepen my experience I became a jewelry designer for a luxury brand in Paris, I learned the technique and the craft of novelty jewelry and the creation of jewelry collection as well.
Today, as the jewelry and accessory designer of my own brand "Haute fantaisie", URBANSKIN*, I was able to use my experiences and influences to develop my collections. I work with refined materials such as leather, lace, silver 925, gold-plated, Swarovski crystals and pearls. I combine or oppose them. Every designs are originals, drawn and cut by myself with neat finishes to bring elegance and femininity in a ROCK'N CHIC style.
Certified "Made in France" and homemade creation which are only created in limited and short runs, each piece is meticulously manufactured by hand in my workshop in Paris.
I also propose tailor-made and personalized ornaments for weddings and special events. And for about a year, I teach high-end jewelry crafting, and my students are delighted to enter into my creative universe.
Independent by nature, attached to my liberty of expression, I work abandoning trends, following my feeling in regard of this era and my own inspiration. I think about women who like me are multiple, different every day... For me, a woman can be as she pleases, fatal, mischievous or rebel and my creations reflect these feminine essence.
My creative world is feminine, glamour, sometimes baroque or rock, a Couture spirit in a slightly retro style. My inspirations are many, first in my teenage years I was influence by my idol Marylin Monroe and other stars from the 40/50s, I was influence by the Hollywoodien Glamour.
Also inspired by the spirit “Music-Hall” and cheerleading magazines from 20/30s like Joséphine Baker or Minstinguett, their costumes and attitudes.
Very sensitive to the new art, jewelry and object of René Lalique’s art, Gustave Klimt’s painting, I was influence also by the Pop Art.
Passionate about traveling and discovery about other population, I immerse myself by Indian, Balinese, Moroccan and Caribbean’s culture. Providing an ethnic touch of my creations. A book represents this influence, “Femmes du monde” by Titouan Lamazo, a book of traveling. URBANSKIN is my brand, it was natural, the material that I mainly use is the skin, I associate with chains in a modern, urban style.

My dream is to live my passion. My passion is creating some jewelry and accessories. Sometimes I think I am in a little workshop where I can exhibit my work, and I can teach in the same place. (I do it actually but at home) 10 years from now
I would like attain this objective, and why not create a line of clothes with jewelry and accessories. My jewelry are chic, timeless with a strong identity. They are the fruits of research forms, exclusive patterns, a work on the flexible and sensual material called leather and associations with 925 silver, metal and now gold-plated. I use other materials and elements like; lace, Swarowski, glass pearls, agate stone, aventurin… as I wish. The forms are atypical, some patterns are cut out manually with a scalpel, and others expand due to a pearl embedded between two elements of leather and mingle together by rings. To each new collection I bring a new idea around leather.
There is a multitude of colors following a precise range of leather.
The URBANSKIN’s jewelry are sold on this web site: www.alittlemarket.com/boutique/urbanskin
