Taking care of business in France

Stylanvia Creations by Christelle Lothaire

Born in 1981, of west Indian origin, I always lived in France in the Paris region. Since childhood, I had decided that later I would create my own clothes.

As soon as I had possibility of it, I went to school of mode the Thistle Chardon Savard in Paris where I taught it and developed the job of fashion designer. At the exit of this school, I made my personal experience by participating in festivals of mode, fashion parades - competition as FIMA in Niger.

When I saw my own procession creations, hit by models and especially heard the positive comments on my creations. I decided to create my brand of clothes for woman Stylanvia.

My brand is born in 2007, creations are marked by the urban world, good on the African / West Indies world where from I have my origins and the elements which composes the yesterday, today's world and tomorrow.

My first collection includes all pieces of a wardrobe. It is a summer collection. Inspired by West Indies, mix of Madras, English embroidering with the satin and the muslin. Backs are emphasized by cuts. Flowers hibiscus, balisier are painted in the hand.
