As a textile designer, I have worked for the automotive industry for 6 years as a lead designer (creation and product development) for Stellantis and Renault group. I have also collaborated on interior design projects, developing tailor-made fabrics such as specific Jacquards, custom prints or exclusive panels meeting architecture expectations (metal threats weaving, acoustic felt panels). Today I work full time as a freelance textile designer and CMF consultant for fashion brands, architects and the industry.
