Known for their technique of imitating mother of pearl, and creating iconic creations in nacre and poured glass, delicate metal and glass flowers being a signature model, as well as the famous ‘lily of the valley’ brooch for Christian Dior. Working with Lanvin, Poiret at the beginning through to Chanel , Dior and many of the 1950s couturiers, Yves Saint Laurent and again to Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs in more recent times.
