LesBonnesVivantes' Shop Announcement

Les Bonnes Vivantes, formerly Thread and Butter is (for now) a one-woman venture based then in Los Angeles, California, now in Paris, France.
LBV is fueled first and foremost by a love of Haute Couture and a respect for its technique and craftsmanship. This passion led me on a pilgrimage to the city of lights to learn more about this craft.

My design philosophy is simple: Personal Style over trend.
Every woman should feel beautiful in her own skin and wear what makes her look her best-which is why the female form inspires me to no end.
Other inspirations include fine art and art history (especially 1800-1930), books, travel and the pursuit of a higher quality of life.
A Bonne Vivante knows above all, how to live well and appreciates the finer things in life!

“Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.”
― Yves Saint-Laurent


If you are in the Paris area, I am also available for custom designs.
