Independent textile artist Ariane Mariane creates “fiber art to wear” in her French atelier near Paris. She makes outstanding and eco-friendly garments and accessories of high quality. Each item is handmade mostly by nuno felting. Only the smoothest merino wool, finest fabrics (silk, linen, and cotton) and best fibers are employed.
Her joyful line of unique and one of a kind pieces are meant to dress unique, special and individual women - women for whom fashion is an art and a statement.
Her work is so unusual because she makes her own "tissue" (fabric). Her clothes are designed by her & fabricated by her. I saw one dress that was like a dream. I tried it on and it was (as if) made for me...yes, I bought the dress! Below you will see some photos of her & her designs. When you are in Paris, or if you are lucky enough to live there, be sure to go the ART MARKET every Sat. Richard Lenoir.
