Parisian pure juice, as comfortable in a hotel bar the 8th in a boozer Belleville, Marianne and Eleanor Ripp Chedeville are passionate about fashion and zeitgeist. Meeting with two brain fonceuses that rhyme style with envy.
Where does your passion for the trend in general and fashion in particular?
Marianne: My story is not there stranger! A grandmother who created in 1950 his own sewing workshop in Paris, at a time when women were rarely independent. Aesthetes parents, lovers painting, design, literature. A Parisian childhood shaped by colors, mixing, luxury, city lights ... I then learned how to make this passion a profession, through my studies at the Beaux-Arts and then at the Institute of French Fashion followed by hectic years as Purchasing Director in ready to wear.

Eleanor: To share the mode that you like, one that creates, moved, invented and scrolls but also one that fits our daily lives. Coco Montaigne, this is also an opportunity to offer amateur Trend minutes happy distractions to find out what our dressing will be done tomorrow ...
Marianne: To talk about fashion differently, offer perspective on style girls who have spent 30 years! Also to show that fashion thrives on culture, it is a lifestyle more than a rat race trends.

Eleanor: Style is an expression of our personality, an inventory of our mood, a reflection of our imagination and our influences. The style is to suggest without saying.
