THE PORTRAIT

 

In 2006, Cécile de La Chapelle created her couture studio in Paris, and made the audacious decision of working only in white.

 

Following her marriage in 2013, Cécile moved her studio to her Haussmannian apartment in Asnières-sur-Seine.

 

It was at the age of 10 that Cecile, a designer at heart, discovered the sewing machine. Nothing suggested, then, that she would passionately embark on this profession of designer and seamstress, choosing to specialise in wedding dresses and christening robes.

 

After training  at Supdemod in Lyon and Esmod in Paris, her talent as a seamstress was quickly acknowledged by talented designers from the Chambre Syndicale, and favourably greeted by the head seamstress of Christian Lacroix  during the design of the wedding cortege of Prince Jean and Philomena d'Orléans.

 

A craftswoman with love of fine workmanship, Cecile fashions made-to-measure dresses completely by hand. She values the trusting relationship created with future brides. She supports her clients in their choices and shares their aspirations. What matters the most to her is the subtle search for cuts that will highlight the bust of the bride, and the delicate feel of the fabrics to find the perfect volume of the dress.

 

A very good listener, Cécile, with her attention to detail and her sure eye, seeks to enhance the natural beauty of her clients by creating harmony between the different fabrics, thus designing THE dress for the most beautiful day of their life.
