About me
Hi ! I’m a multifaceted Fashion Designer, Fashion & Personal Stylist. I am the founder and creative director of EpithuxikHarmonie a gender-fluid label dedicated to creating high-end statement clothing, from bespoke made to order couture item, to ready-to-wear and fashion accessories & jewellery. With a constant emphasis on working with high-quality, Europe sourced sustainable fabrics and materials. MORE INFORMATIONS HERE —> www.epithuxikharmonie.com Having worked for over three years in a personal styling and image consulting agency based in Paris, run by Cristina Cordula, a Brazilian & French TV host and celebrity. I have developed a passion for helping individuals improve their self-confidence by enabling them to refine and update their personal image and style, in order to help them to find more pleasure and joy when dressing up according to their personality and body-shape. In December 2020 I launched my own personal styling agency : THE PARISIAN STYLIST, offering online and in-person tailored style appointements for women, men and non-binary individuals. MORE INFORMATIONS HERE —> www.theparisianstylist.com Since 2016 I have been providing private tutoring for fashion students and aspiring students helping them improve their understanding on how to build a cohesive collection, from establishing a strong mood-board with a clear story-telling to sketching the collection volumes and silhouettes. I also helped students improve their pattern cutting and garment construction skills and overall sewing skills. In September 2018 I joined the teaching team of the Parisian Fashion school; Atelier Chardon Savard, delivering courses about personal styling and image consulting as well as textile oriented courses. I moved to London in October 2019 to keep on pursuing my career as a fashion & personal stylist while I kept on working on the development of my fashion label. I am always looking for new professional opportunities within my range of skills. Please feel free to reach-out to me if you would like to work or collaborate with me.

    | EPITHUXIKHARMONIE | Jewellery CampaignI had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with two very talented artists I met on The Dots. They joined me to create those beautiful images for the launch of my first jewellery collection for EpithuxikHarmonie London. My desire was to create an esthetic that was both ethereal with some botanical elements but also quite earthy with a few mineral and sturdy elements. I wanted the images to bring out the refined elements of the jewellery design, while also highlighting the durability of the

  • "Metal Heart" | Fashion Story For Féroce Magazine
    "Metal Heart" | Fashion Story For Féroce Magazine"Metal Heart" is a Fashion Story Published in the January 2021 Issue of Féroce Magazine. For this story I wanted to create a style that was reminiscent of both the Punk and Romantic aesthetic. We choose to play with strong and bold make-up looks, creating a modern take on the Punk aesthetic, but I decided to go with a more elevated wardrobe, featuring beautifully crafted design, made with luxurious fabrics. Reminiscent of the Haute-Couture heritage of Paris, where this shoot took place in Oct

  • Diaspora for Volant Magazine
    Diaspora for Volant MagazineThis editorial attempts to capture the Chinese diaspora through a mixture of Asian and Western imagery to reflect upon my mixed race heritage. Growing up half Chinese, I often felt embarrassed about that part of my heritage due to social stigmas towards Chinese culture. I would love to alter this perception and instead honour this part of me. This is a very common thing people of colour experience growing up in the Western world and I, being white in passing, have had a completely unique exper
