As a French Canadian who grew up in Austria, I have been influenced by countless stories and fairy tales surrounding a variety of cultures. Inspired by The Little Prince, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, this look combines my passion for knitwear with my deeply-rooted love for storytelling.

The back of this vest has embroidery in the shape of a fox, accompanied by a star-shaped button, reminiscent of the little prince’s adventures.

The organza dress’s collar and cuffs were handknit using chunky merino and sparkling stellina yarn. The shorts were made by alternating stripes and tuck stitches. All yarns are hand-dyed.

This vest features a variety of intricate handknit stitches. An opening on its side allows for the hem to be held up by carved wooden buttons. All yarns are hand-dyed.

I decided to major in design because of my love for fashion as well as my love for storytelling. Fashion design allows me to combine these passions, and I think this is especially true when it comes to knitwear. Knitwear not only requires me to think of the fit and shape of my designs but also of the fabric and textures I want to create to make these stories come alive. I love how knitwear pushes me to think outside the box from the very start of the design process, and how profoundly unique and personal each design is to the creator.
