BEHIND AMICALEMENT SOI, IT'S ANGÉLIQUE GRUAU
Parisian and Mayennaise, Angélique has sought to dust off the classic silk square to make it an everyday accessory.
“Amicalement Soi", it's cinema, color, music, family, elegance, sensuality, extravagance, travel, history, friends, aesthetics and ethics. »
Angélique grew up with a desire for permanent creation, drawing inspiration from her books, cinema, music, architecture, sculpture and all artistic activity. Angelique likes to create, observe and share. From the age of seven, she used her hands to create by modeling clay. Then comes the embroidery and very quickly learning to sew with the family machine. As a teenager, she naturally went to a high school of applied art to continue her apprenticeship at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne then at the Atelier Chardon Savard. His desire to create never ceased to grow. Thirsty for learning, Angélique discovered craftsmanship at the tailor Cifonelli in Paris during her studies after her classes, learning, observing this unique know-how of tailoring.
"It's being inspired far in the past that allows you to go even further in the future."
After theory, comes practice. Angélique will be assistant stylist for the fashion houses Rabih Kayrouz, Christian Wijnants and Coralie Marabelle. She then had the chance to perfect her knowledge as a graphic designer and colorist for the printing workshop “Les Tissus d’Avesnières”.
Currently a master's student in textiles at the Accademia de Costume e Moda in Rome, Angélique also wears her brand "AMICALEMENT SOI".
