About Marie | À propos de Marie

Marie Maglaque is a French embroidery accessory designer, currently based in Switzerland after living more than 10 years in Asia.

Marie caught the travel bug early on and graduated in 2001 from ESMOD Paris, an international fashion school, with a degree in fashion design and pattern making. Shortly after, she moved to Florence (Italy) where she learnt Italian, studied jewelry design and did an internship at the fashion label Emilio Pucci's HQ.

In 2004, an opportunity to work in Tokyo as a marketing assistant for a French jeweler initiated her passion for Japan. Later on, work led her to live in Singapore where she started her family before moving to several other countries in Asia.

Marie takes her inspiration from floral patterns and laces as well as embroidery materials. Her favorites include cup sequins, tiny beads and DMC cotton threads with vibrant colors. Although her background is in fashion and jewelry designs, Marie is a self-taught embroiderer and only works with embroidery needles, mostly on felt & lace bases.

In addition to selling finished pieces and exhibiting, Marie is also teaching workshops and in 2016 published her first DIY book in Japan (by Tatsumi Publishing). The book will be released in France (and in French!) in May 2018.

Créatrice franco-suisse d'accessoires brodés, avec en poche des diplômes de styliste (ESMOD Paris) et de dessinatrice de bijou (Le Arti Orafe, Florence, Italie), Marie est passionnée par les paillettes, les sequins, les fils et les perles de couleurs. Elle commença très tôt à expérimenter la broderie en créant sacs et pochettes brodées.

Son style s'inspire de la nature, principalement des fleurs et des feuilles, et a été fortement influencé par plusieurs années passées au Japon.

Les imprimés colorés et pimpants rythment son univers et deviennent des broches, boucles d'oreilles, colliers et autres accessoires apportant un jolie touche de fantaisie à vos tenues.

Depuis 2016 Marie vit en Suisse avec sa petite famille, après avoir passé 12 années extraordinaires dans différents pays d'Asie.
