Ariane’s passion for design derives from looking at illustrations in antique encyclopedias that depicted drawings of buildings, fashion and botany. After a career in finance, she decided to realize her need to design and began a course at the London College of Fashion and furthered her studies at Kensington and Chelsea College.
Prior to starting full time at KCC, Ariane had the opportunity to do work experience at Noel Stewart Millinery for thirteen months, Justin Smith Esq. for five months and Edwina Ibbotson for three months. Ariane is currently working at Stephen Jones Millinery.
In future Ariane hopes to design and create for fashion collaborations, art installations, and private clients commissions.
