Founder and Creative Director, Delphine Genin is the only designer in Australia to specialise in couture art embroidery. Trained by the prestigious Ecole LESAGE in Paris, she honours the tradition of French craftsmanship and quality by incorporating numerous activities protected by Les Métiers d’Art in France, while embracing today’s technology to radically transform the couture fashion industry.
Her professional background, as an influential and successful businesswoman in a male-dominated world, has significantly influenced her designs, which seek to represent modern femininity through the use of traditionally male attributes whilst exploring a multitude of contextual and personal references through her passions for psychology and self-expression.
"French revelation - Genin is pioneering a radical concept in her eponymous atelier in a precinct that identifies as home to private clubs, politicians and heavyweight bankers. The embroidery is invested with symbolism referencing a woman's strength."Susan Owens, The Australian Financial Review
