Selected by WBDM for its international events
After graduating in architecture, Ariane Lespire decided to explore new paths. Her enthusiasm and never-ending creativity led her to her parallel career. She first created ceremony hats before switching to ready-to-wear and accessories. Her scarves, stoles, hats and beanies in boiled wool contributed to her first commercial successes. Her collections are currently sold in Belgium, France, United States... After a few seasons, she decided to add wool, cotton and other materials (such as leather) to her collections, as well as jewels. Ariane and two collaborators conceived and hand-make unique pieces and special orders in a cute Liège-based boutique. Two local ateliers produce the limited editions pieces or the small series. One of them is specialised in the vocational rehabilitation of women in needs. This ethic and social involvement is in line with Ariane's strong desire to offer a high-qualitative product, which is contemporary, but also sustainable.
