About Charlotte Vaillant :

From an early age Charlotte Vaillant has a strong passion for sewing and dress design. She spent all her childhood surrounded by fabrics, buttons, ribbons… At the age of 10 she learnt to use a sewing machine and made some costumes for herself.

Charlotte studied fashion design and model making, at the Haute Couture University of Paris. During this time, she opened her own business of wedding dress made-to-measure, which is still ongoing.
