EXPRESS YOURSELF WITH FANTASY , COLORS AND CREATIVITY ARE GOOD FOR THE MOOD !
My name is Jenny Eve .
I'm French and i apologize for my bad English language ….
For this reason , the bad English language , my presentation will be short !
I'm an independent Textile Artisan , Couturier .
I have my own style , my character , i don't make garment "fashionable" , i prefer to think "timeless" .
All garments and accessories are made and photographed by me .
They are mainly hand-sewn ( I use the sewing machine at minima ), hand-embroidered.
I think the hand-sewing is more decorative. It takes much longer time, but the result is delicate, with soul. To sew by hand is a tactile meeting between me, the textures and my creations. It can be as a sort of meditation too, the mind travels, the work grows slowly with maturity during its process. Sewing with a machine, with all the tactactac vroom vroom, no, thank you, it is not for me , it is stressful ;)
All my garment creations are unique and The Headpieces are edited in small editions ( 2 to 10 pieces ) , more rarely piece unique . They are hand-sewn
I admire the hand made work by generations of women which preceded us , I love the poetry and the imperfections found in this work.
I try to continue this tradition.
I love beautiful old materials ,when they were handmade ,from finest and precious antique lace to vintage ethnic treasuries .
They inspire me , I collect and recycle them in my creations .
To create new garments and accessories with old materials, is to give them a second ,a new and different life,to bring them out of oblivion.
I'm passionate by the ethnic costume history in all the world ,
I collect books , fabrics , garments ,my life atmosphere is full of them ,I live "in and with" them all the time and they are source of inspiration.
" Art and Beauty make our existences bearable".
I built a cocoon work life atmosphere around me ,to be able to create for my kind customers all around the world garments and accessories, trying to share with them some dreams coming from my head , made with my hands and ... with my heart.
Sometimes , with humor , i play to be model in my creations ....to show that a small woman like me ( i'm 1,59 cm / 5'2" ) and curvy ( i'm FR 42 / US 10 ) can wear my garments.
I absolutely don't create for gigantic top models wearing xxs sizes because they are not the reality!
And i'm not 16 years old either , but 46 .
Don't be shy, express yourself with fantasy , colors and creativity are good for the mood !
As says Madame Iris Apfel :
MORE IS MORE AND LESS IS A BORE
