The milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre atelier.
1. What is a typical day like at your studio? Do you work closely together or do you each focus on different areas of the business? Do you have a team helping out or do the two of you do everything yourselves?
We do the most we can by ourselves helped by green tea!!
Most of the time we work closely together on the same big desk and share everything, focusing sometimes on the same things and other times different…
But we have a great team too!! A wonderful photographer Maxime Ballesteros based in Berlin, an amazing web designer Alexis Gaillard based in Tokyo, clever boyfriends and very good friends!! 🙂
2. Can you tell us a little about your design process? What is your favorite medium to work in? Do you prefer to work digitally or paint/draw by hand (or a combination of both?)
We love working by hand, mixing techniques. But yes it’s a combination of digital and manual.
3. What would you consider to be your most proud accomplishment so far?
That you can find milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre scarves around the world.
4. Could you talk a bit about your experience presenting at Paris Fashion week? What were the most memorable moments for you?
