Marine's Profile

About

Hi there ! Here's more about me and my shop - la version française est plus bas :)

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a fashion designer, I was both fascinated by the runways (the "beautiful dresses" as I used to say) and by the multitude of colors available when you pick a tread or some yarn at the notions store. All those racks of colors were like a big painting to me, maybe a Monet. Later on, I turn my creative energy to photography and forget I had a sewing machine. I have to admit that someday, I left my camera on a shelf too and I moved on with studies, work and more work. Then I decided to take a big vacation, you know, a one-year vacation kind ! I travelled a lot, I take time to breathe and someday (it was on a street in California), I had the idea for what's now my little shop here on Etsy !

Bonjour et bienvenue !
Je m'appelle Marine et je vis près de Paris. Lors d'un grand voyage, j'ai eu l'idée de réunir deux passions que j'avais un peu abandonnées entre le métro, le boulot et le dodo, la couture et la photographie. Quand j'étais enfant, je voulais être styliste, adolescente photographe. Et pourquoi pas un peu deux finalement ?
J'ai toujours été fasciné par les milliers de couleurs disponibles dans les merceries, comme un grand arc-en-ciel ou un tableau abstrait d'Ellsworth Kelly. Avec Small Couture, je réunis mes photographies avec mon amour des mélanges de couleur forts. Mes articles sont une invitation à la douceur de vivre, à célébrer l'instant présent... N'hésitez pas à me contacter pour toute question !
