Bonjour! I am a couture fashion designer & owner of Dear Frances. I grew up in Sydney, Australia & have recently relocated to Paris for my work. My path into the fashion world was not straight, but came about by following my passion for textiles, texture & tonal colour. I soon realised I could combine these loves to create unique items which truely reflect who I am. As a result, my collections are inspired by all of these things & by the contrasts of the two cities I call home. My main love is lingerie, the truly delicate and feminine kind, which I can spend days working on and perfecting. I truely love the hand-made, made-to-order process & believe that all products should be made with passion & affection. When I'm not drawing, sewing, appliquéing or fossicking through old wares, I fancy myself as a novice photographer, homely cook & travel fanatic.
