After obtaining a master\'s degree in design at the Beaux-Arts in Le Mans, a stint at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, textile design section, Marie turned to fashion.
An internship with Nelly Bichet, milliner at Le Mans, another with Jürgen Kazengruben, costume designer confirmed him in this choice. Wishing to learn a skill, to work with her hands, she did a CAP in hats, show hat option in Nogent-sur-Marne.
She learns how to make hats, from molding felt to straw to show hats. During an internship at the Opéra Bastille, she discovered the profession of floral adornment (creation of fabric flowers). She decides to train for this profession at the Lycée Octave Feuillet in Paris in the only school that exists in France.
During her studies at the Beaux-Arts, she set up a very unique studio. Her love for hats and her desire to be useful for women led her to set up a hat-making workshop for women with cancer at the Maison du Patient in Le Mans. In this workshop, the women made their own headgear and left with their creations.
She hopes to set up this workshop once her business is sustainable. She worked almost a year for the Legeron house in Paris. It is a living heritage business. She works there on fabric and feather flowers and learns featherwork. The major Couture houses regularly call on this company. It is an experience that trained him in patience, neat, meticulous work, a sense of detail, noble materials, French excellence.
She decides to set up on her own, to renew contact with women and returns to Sarthe. She set up her workshop in Bouloire, right next to her father\'s antique shop. She is passionate about beautiful old materials (felt, silk, buttons, lace) which she uses regularly in her work.
Her love for her profession has regularly pushed her to give demonstrations to the general public (Around Hats, Salon Métier d\'Art, Métier Passion) to make them aware of this rare know-how which is trying to disappear. She also works as a subcontractor for Haute-Couture.
