Girl gangs, female collectives, new businesswomen and creative female teams… Women are successfully establishing their creative power and seizing control of the cultural, social and business scenes.
As girl gangs inspire us and shake up fashion lines, Who’s Next is inviting girl groups to the heart of their January 2017 edition: with a selection of exclusive brands and pop-up stores, guest influencers, a music programme, a unique scenography…
Here is the Q&A by a fashion #girlsquad exhibiting in the Urban area of #wsn17 this January!
Age, Gender, City?
Déborah, age 31, Paris (born in Switzerland (of Portuguese origin) / Jeanne, age 28, Paris (originally from Bordeaux) / Hélène, age 26, Paris (originally from Rennes)
How was your #girlsquad created?
Our #girlsquad was created from the desire to join forces and make wonderful things, then it grew little by little. You could say that in a way each person who crossed our path ended up becoming a part of our squad.
What is your profession?
We have a women’s ready-to-wear brand of street and contemporary influences, called Pantheone. We also have a creation studio and we organise events.
What would you like to do in the future?
Continue creating collections which grow internationally and expand our community even more!
What does a #girlsquad mean to you?
A gang of girls! Who find inspiration through each other and ultimately create a fusion.
What is the origin of your brand’s name?
“Pantheone” is the Pantheon for Women, with a little play on Pantone.
What do you like most about your job?
Creating in every sense: It’s just as much the creation of clothing as it is the creation of the company that will enable it to survive. In fact, it’s the idea to create something and to help it evolve and develop.
Why are you exhibiting at Who’s Next?
Because Who’s Next is the biggest name in the ready-to-wear industry. It’s always an honour to participate there and even more so with the theme “girls squad“ which we hold very close to our hearts.
What are your projects for 2017?
Firstly, to develop a unisex line and continue to expand our business online whilst making Pantheone a digital brand and as independent as possible. At the same time, it’s always our wish to be distributed in concept stores across the world.
What is your favourite place in Paris?
The 18th arrondissement! In which we have all lived. There you have Sacré Coeur, as well as other cultural places such as the Palais de Tokyo, the Centre Pompidou… Then you also have the clubs which we like to go to such as Concrete and La Mano.
What is your biggest dream?
To create a Pantheone empire!
How would you define your style?
A sexy but comfortable style! A story of being feminine but with trainers and lots of streetwear influences with a touch of femininity and a hint of extravagance…
