Discovering young talent 2/2

Last month I began to present two talented young women whose work is directly related to my books.Their work, although part of our century, comes alive around historical themes. I wrote about Laureen Keravec in my previous article. Today I would like to introduce Céline, a seamstress, based in Brittany, in Guichen, south of Rennes.

I discovered his work while I was looking for images to illustrate my first novel ('The Lady of Albi'), whose story is that of an assassin in the Middle Ages. I came across a beautiful photograph of Céline in one of her costumes: the ideal shot. I discovered a young woman whose work as a costume designer is not limited to the creation of high quality clothes, but also relies on solid historical research to develop her costumes.

I'm not the only one who appreciates his work. Among her clients is the Rennes tourist office, which commissioned her to have a beautiful 19th century dress to illustrate her heritage (see photo).

I invite you to take a tour of his website, or to visit his workshop. It offers bespoke costumes inspired by historical or fantasy, as well as any other type of clothing.

It is rare to find someone who mixes passion, talent and entrepreneurship regardless of age. It is even rarer to find someone who brings it all together and has such a rich artistic life. So I wanted to promote it to all history buffs, as well as to all those who loved my books.
