Sebastien is available for work

Being the hub of projects linked to transformation and strategy. It is the architecture of a creative, exchange and sharing approach in order to bring modernity and competitiveness to the Fashion industry."

I am passionate about fashion and its business. Through various professional experiences and training, I have acquired a 360 ° vision of this industry. My activity helps companies to pivot and transform teams on transversal projects.

I've created Velvet & Cigars to share this passion and my analyzes of society in order to provide Fashion companies with a specific reflection on their processes and their collection development.

Curious, self-taught, I like to seek and think about solutions to optimize and to pivot the projects of these companies. This project development is achievable through sharing, agility and transversality. It's my management style.

Last but not least, I am sensitive to changes in our society which today affect our way of acting in the textile industry. The creative process must correspond to a strategic environmental and societal reflection.
