How was your #girlsquad created?
The idea came to me during a stay in New York and a conversation with other bloggers from different countries. We talked about our vision of blogging and this moment of sharing made me want to create the same type of experience in France with curvy bloggers. French Curves was born!
What is your profession?
I dedicate myself full-time to my business project in the large industry of fashion!
What does a #girlsquad mean to you?
A group of friends, of women who support each other, watch over each other and support each other.
What is your background ?
I entered the blogging world purely by chance as I needed a way to express myself to the world, more or less anonymously. To share my path of self acceptance. Over the years, this conversation that I had with myself, through the clothes I wear, has become interactive with thousands of women who read my page every month and has made me an influencer in the plus size fashion world through a positive body movement.
What do you like most about your job?
Meetings with either other influencers, readers and together shifting the lines of the plus size fashion industry.
What are your projects for 2017?
Take out my first collection for women size 44 and up and to continue my support in this campaign that we are building.
What is your favorite place in Paris?
The gardens of the Palais Royale. I like the mix of atmospheres there. Going there in spring and autumn are not the same at all: the colours are different and the energy too. I often take pictures there to immortalise on my website.
What is your biggest dream?
Open an international chain of stores in which women and men of all sizes can find happiness with clothes!
Who are your fashion icons?
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie because she represents the modern woman who knows how to nourish the spirit while loving fashion and beauty
Marilyn Monroe who did not need to follow the rules in order to leave her footprint on the world
Carrie Bradshaw: Who better than Carrie to wear a tutu with a denim shirt on the streets of New York?
