is the founder, Ceo and art director of Marie Antoilette. Born near Lyon, Valérie studied at the Emile Cohl Graphic Arts School, where she graduated with a mention and special prize from the jury for “her humour, wit and the impressive diversity of techniques used.”
In february 2011, she presented her very first tights collection at Le Village des Créateurs, Lyon. The success was amazing so she decided to open her own boutique while looking for other shops all over France.
Valerie is constantly observing women around her, in the streets, the subway, day-dreaming of drawings that would shape the leg, make it shine. She’s always wondering : “What would my daughter, my friends wear ? What about that lady I passed by a minute ago, what is her own personal universe ?”
