Art and fashion are part of my world since childhood and then I decided to study marketing and management in the Fashion, Luxury and Lifestyle sectors in Paris.
Having had the opportunity to work for several big houses and to learn how to understand concretely the basics of the trade during my studies, I first integrated the Ralph Lauren house in Paris, then the Press agency Laurence Phitoussi as an attached Press agent assistant. I continued my experience in communication with the Couture house Andrew Gn in Paris. Then I was lucky to be trained by the famous Parisian multi-brand showroom, the M & K Agency, which sells the most advanced designers to international department stores.
In order to gain international skills, I left Paris for Los Angeles. I joined the Starworks Gp agency, then Trendy Butler in Hollywood as a buyer and helped to organize the Los Angeles Fashion Week.
It is in 2015 that I finally went back to France to begin a new adventure with Modem online guide, the Fashion & Design ‘Bible', to the communication division management. Building on these experiences, DS Fashion Project is born in 2017, a consulting agency dedicated to all the actors in the fashion and design sectors
