A little word from the designer:

" This dress is named Ninon after Ninon de l’Enclos, French author, courtesan, and patron of the arts. Known for both her wit and beauty, a black and white engraving represents her with a ruffle dress.

One of her most famous quote is: ‘ Today a new sun rises for me; everything lives, everything is animated, everything seems to speak to me of my passion, everything invites me to cherish it.’

May we all live with such joy and enthusiasm. "

Traditional couture & smocks expertise

Open tab

Uniting timeless French style with traditional handsmocking, our dresses are one of a kind. Time-honored know-hows of dressmaking are practiced in our very own atelier by our team of experts who bring each piece to life. 

Pioneers in marrying nouveau French style with the traditional smocking art of Madagascar and have been dedicated to the craft for over three decades. Deeply treasured, we are commited to the safe-keeping of this precious heritage.


Our fabrics are manually gathered using a traditional pleater. Through meticulous gestures we obtain consistency and equal distance between the pleats.

 For striped and checked fabrics, we  pleat the fabric entirely by hand so as to put forward one color. The same goes for velvets so as to achieve greated precision. Nothing is left to chance. We believe there is no age to enjoy well made clothes. Your children deserve perfection.

Once pleated, the fabric is then smocked entirely by hand too. This skill is passed down from generation to generation within our atelier. Offering unlimited possibilities, smocks enhance our creativity. Each season is a new opportunity to experiment and renew our designs. Inspiration is gleaned from nature’s beauty, cherished childhood memories, and most of all French culture.  Our Parisian boutique L'Île aux Fées' surrounding is a constant source of amazement and new ideas.

All our embroideries are traditionally made with embroidery hoops. We call the result “needle painting” due to its delicacy. Thanks to this ancient know-how we achieve great precision and sophistication.

At every step and up until the very last stitch, great care is provided. The wrong side is almost as clean as the right side. 

Our hems are also made by hand in order to obtain an invisible seam. Even our buttons are self covered by hand!
