All three have acquired their affirmed experiences in ready-to-wear at Tara Jarmon. Edith held the position of stylist, and Camille has made his weapons on the digital and retail component of the brand.

After studying business marketing in the United States, Camille Jarmon returned to France and moved to her mother’s Parisian home.

Accomplices, but especially ambitious, the two women are already drawing in their dreams the first fruits of their future brand to come.

After the sale of the brand Tara Jarmon, in September 2016 to the Italian company Ams Industries, the dream becomes possible. Just a year later, the three associates set up Mirae with the idea of ​​creating a 100% digital label, backed by Instagram, a new oracle of brand communication.

On their account @miraeparis, launched in February, the brand distills clichés of their first collection incarnated by sisters, such as a colorful moodboard that celebrates life, women, sensuality, greed, emotions … So many sons reds that build the DNA of the young brand on a daily basis.

In the first collection, launched in early April, there are about twenty references to the colors of the sun announcing the arrival of beautiful days around airy and floral dresses, jazzy pants with seventies influences and tops that are knit as desired. To complete this first series, the brand has designed a line of sandals at the passable heel and a velvet goat evening bag.

One of these fashion designers who changed history: Jeanne Paquin

The gorgeous Jeanne Paquin is one of the most important couturiers of the early twentieth century. She was known for her innovative designs as well as her entrepreneurial qualities.

It is in 1869, in the old Ile Saint Denis, in the border of Paris (France), that Jeanne Marie Charlotte Beckers was born. Known in the fashion world as Jeanne Paquin, she started young in a local dress shop, and then she trained at the prestigious French fashion house Maison Rouff.

The fashion designer quickly worked her way up. By age 22, Jeanne Beckers married the businessman Isidore Rene Jacob best known as Paquin, and with his financial support she opened her own couture house.

The House Paquin was located on 3 rue de la Paix in Paris, not far from the exceptional designer worth.

The House Paquin became soon famous and built the brand as an international company. Foreign branches were opened in London and New York, in 1912, and in Buenos Aires and Madrid, in 1914.

The prestigious House of Paquin had a rich and famous clientele. Garments was designed by Madam Pacquin for the Queens all around the world, for the wives of American tycoons such as the Rockfellers, Vanderbilts, Astors, Ballantines, and Wannamakers, as well as famous actresses such as La Belle Époque stars, like Liane de Pougy or La Belle Otero.

Mme Paquin designed garments for all occasions ranging from luxurious filmy pastel evening gowns reminiscent of Eighteenth Century elegance, vibrant Oriental- inspired garments, extravagant evening wraps, chic tailored dresses and suits. She also produced uncanny and fancy hats.

Jeanne Paquin was a brilliant artist who crafted imaginative and innovative garments, neither functional nor comfortable as well as modern clothings. Madame Paquin was the face of the Paquin House as well as the head designer and and the head of the House.

To create stunning and breathtaking visual effects, the brilliant Jeanne Paquin used nonpareil sewing techniques and selected fabrics and decorations that harmonized color and light.

To conclude with words of Robert Forrest, who wrote that: “Fashion once simply did not know what to wear until Madame Paquin brought out her season’s models, and, as for her competitors, their plight was pitiful.”

Vêtements, a name so common as he allows to hide.

The choice of this label, which activates an avalanche of results on Google but never the one that we look for, is not completely owed probably not at random.

“To be invisible on the Internet, it is the dream!” said Demna Gvasalia, indicated as spokesman of this collective mode which has the selfies and “personal branding” in horror.

Two years ago, nobody knew this claw, mixture of recycled secondhand clothes (are needed two vintage pants to create a jeans) and of pieces which confuse the issue of the male – feminine: bomber and trench coat enters spirit motorcyclist and codes army, suddenly shaken by a brightness of fuchsia stitch. Unsheathes it casual can also be sulfurous. Around Demna Gvasalia in the collective, two stylists crossed as him by Maison Martin Margiela, his brother who takes care of the sales management and a trainee ” who makes a little of everything “. At 36 years old, Demna spent four years to study the fashion to the Academy of Antwerp, four years to work for Maison Martin Margiela and almost three years at Louis Vuitton, where he observed Marc Jacobs, ” of a crazy creativity “, then Nicolas Ghesquière, ” an ultimate perfectionist « .

In March, 2015, Vêtements was a part of finalists of the prize LVMH for the young fashion designers. Six months later, Demna was announced to succeed Alexander Wang in the artistic direction of Balenciaga. Over there, he did not content itself with the feminine ready-to-wear clothing. He presented the first male parade of the history of the brand. A very talented art director who allowed Balenciaga to introduce a new breath, just like Vêtements which appears as revelation of its time, the one who gives birth to the “normcore” and ignites for the recollections of these 90s having seen emerging the “antifashion”.
