1 & 2- The bride wears Manoush...!
Pop-up wedding collection, in stores February 6-13, 2010
Frédérique Trou-Roy, founder and lead designer of the French brand Manoush, takes care of the animal realm by catering to the human race - especially brides and grooms to be.
Engaged couples planning a bohemian wedding, whether solemn or impromptu, would do well to pay a visit at a Manoush store when they start looking for a dress. During her extensive travelling all over the world, Frédérique put together a tiny collection of vintage gowns, which she cut shorter, dyed and customized until they unmistakably gave out that special Manoush vibe.
The brand donates all of the proceeds to the Marrakech-based Elga Heidrich foundation - akin to Noah's Ark really on terms of species diversity, and one of the precious few animal care institutions active in Morocco.
1 to 3- New Sessùn store
4 to 6- Exhibition Sessùn is like a bird
News are pouring right and left at Sessùn's. For a start, a new store has popped open in Paris, the second one in the rue de Charonne, and a soft space full of light and authenticity. The brand also launched the Playlist line last season; just 12 items, mainly silk dresses and tuxedo pants that delineate evening silhouettes with a distinctly rock'n'roll edge. A musical inspiration that Sessùn wears on its sleeve. Designer Emma François specializes in such clever cross-overs: after a sweet Songs Collection, she has completed a new multidisciplinary project, an exhibition around the theme of the bird and its feathers that will migrate in the spring towards Marseilles and Aix-en-Provence. This airy show features the fluttering plates of Norwegian ceramic artist Astrid Sleire, delicious wooden jewels by Australian-born Naomi Murrell, as well as pictures and other lovely items in limited editions.
