Each item is handmade mostly by nuno felting. Only the smoothest merino wool, finest fabrics (silk, linen, and cotton) and best fibers are employed.
Her joyful line of unique and one of a kind pieces are meant to dress unique, special and individual women - women for whom fashion is an art and a statement.
Artist's statement: Ariane Mariane’s “fiber art to wear” has a graphic spirit. Her garments and accessories are a support for expressing her “collage inspired” art. To underline the pictorial approach she works with beautiful but easy / sober silhouettes which can be adapted in different ways. Versatile and reversible, her garments invite playfulness and reconcile us to the fun fashion should be.
By draping her garments around the body, two dimensional becomes three dimensional - from a picture to a sculpture. We are invited to complete the art work by adding our unique body shape and our imagination. It’s the wearer who gives the final touch to the creation by draping it and by choosing how to assemble the piece with other clothing.
Ariane Mariane: “With my eco-friendly garments and accessories I want to transmit happiness and playfulness. Fashion for me should be art, fashion should be fun and fashion should make this life a bit brighter!”
In Ariane Mariane’s approach fashion is a statement and completely timeless.
