It was at the age of 13 that Silvène discovered the world of fashion, when her mother brought her to a costume exhibition at the Opera Garnier in Paris. Silvène was fascinated by the details, the volumes and the fabrics. She immediately wants to discover more, to handle fabrics, to create; to finally try by herself!

She trained, after her bachelors degree, in model making at the prestigious Parisian fashion school “Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne”. There she focused on pattern design and draping on mannequins. She sharpened her eye and french Haute Couture know-how in tailoring workshops in Paris and Berlin.

A few years later, she studied in Hamburg, perfecting herself in the well known German cut technique (for men, women and children). Silvène has become a specialist of perfectly fitted, original, modern cuts.

Early on she encountered the world of weddings and she fell in love! She secretly began dreaming about her future “cocoon-workshop-showroom”, and refined her concept over the years and through many different experiences to finally reach her dream.

Since 2013, she has been creating exceptional wedding dresses for her clients in Paris, Berlin, Nantes and in Alsace. In 2016 a couple asked her to create their matching bride and groom wedding outfits and it was a revelation. The concept of creating couple’s outfits in perfect harmony is born!
