MA- gives you the opportunity to dress with unique pieces, cut by our hands and created in collaboration with artisans from around the world in organic fabric.

Each year, 2 collections will be made in collaboration with the artisans from one country, that we will have chosen for its beautiful know-how.

We create with them clothes with soul, that have a purpose, to tell a story, their story.

For each collection, we will relate the story of all the collaborators by narratives videos.

MA- commits to human fabrication in total transparency​.

How the project grew

 

alt

We met at Duperré, the Superior school of Art Appliqué.

Our creative intuition were really similar, and we started working together from the beginning.

After our Master, Fashion Womenswear at the Central Saint Martins for Ava and Image Media and Video Photo at Duperré for Mathieu, we realized that we didn’t want to work for the industry of fashion luxury.

After our different internship in this industry, we saw how the creative system lost all its purpose in its crazy production. This revolted us.

"We wanted to work with arts and crafts, meet the artisans, make these know-how remains."

So We created MA, to give an alternative.

Define a strong fashion idea and ethical. We want to put a better vision of the world in our creations, respectful of the environment and about human.

If you help us to surpass the 9 000 €

 

-We could start the training in the insertions workshop in France in order to share our knowledge in couture and then paid the technicians who will made the collection.

-We could paid venues to present our concept and offer our sensitive vision to the largest range of people. We will expose the narratives videos that will tell the story of the creative process of each pieces. These places will link the client, the artisan and the artiste through a unique experience around the clothe.

-We could develop our website.
