Marie Meunier is a French fashion designer whose Paris boutique I discovered last week. In a very interesting conversation we had she told me about her creative path, about how hard it was for her to make her way through the life of fashion and finally arrive to her dream. It was really inspiring to talk to such a strong woman, for me it was very emotional.
When I was looking at her designs, I realized her works are extraordinary. They are not garments you could imagine or see in the street every day. They are like sculptures, they are 3D, as she says. And it’s true – the technics she uses to design the clothes directly on the human body is comparable to the work of a sculptor. “The fabrics I use are different, they move in a different way when they touch the body, how can you draw that? It is impossible to make a sketch of that”.
I told her I liked the vests with no seam between the sleeve and the main part and I added this was very trendy. Here’s what she answered:
“I don’t really care about what people think is fashionable or not, what are the trends. You can tell me this is a trendy garment, but I create pieces which are timeless and not connected to the fashion trends now”.
