After a career as a fashion designer in several luxury houses, from Balmain to Kenzo, including her debut at Alaia, Marie Laure Chamorel, a graduate of the Duperré School of Applied Arts in Paris, created her own line of high-end costume jewelry in 2006 under her eponymous brand.
Marie Laure is guided by her desire to give each piece of jewellery a unique touch. Her inspiration does not fit into any ready-made fashion trend.
"Textile jewellery" is how she describes her creations, born of her passion for threads and materials. For her Custom Jewellery collection, this bargain hunter is willingly inspired by English embroidery, lace, pearls, and other antique cabochons gleaned from her visits to the Paris and New York flea markets. Like a sculptor, she tests the material and creates her prototypes, in volume and by hand, in her Parisian studio in the Marais.
