My name is Jeanne and people for years have asked me, especially in fashion school, if my name is french and is pronounced “John”. I found it hilarious, as i am french but not off the boat french. My relatives long ago were french and my bloods french but i dont speak a word of it.
Of course, I get inspired by the minimalist styles and color palettes the french have exposed the world to for years. I have gathered some images for inspiration and maybe perhaps to use for a future collection. I love designing with crazy prints in easy shapes but i do love a good strong structured minimalist jacket or dress. What are your thoughts on these looks? Would you wear them? Do you think Corinne and Molly would work with these looks if we drew from them?

Love this outfit!
As a Designer, I, Jeanne am always looking for new ways to explore texture and style but also be realistic. I love the feel of fabrics and ways to use them. Especially with dyes. I love natural dyes and shibori techniques. I often look at the Textile Art Center’s blog for inspiration because I love what they are doing in the field of Textiles in NYC. Here are some interesting photos I have found that inspire me to want to go and explore more in the world of textiles. The idea of using textiles to decorate your apartment or home fascinates me as well. Look at how neat a room can look with a touch of texture.
