"Our body is being influenced by our life. And yet our body is more than the sum of our parts. We are after all more than the sum of our experiences. We are as malleable as wax." (L.B.)
The label is inspired by Louise Bourgeois's art pieces that portrayed relationships either as a whole or in relation to its surroundings, a coalescence between material and female body. Creating women's environs, shelter and security.
FEMME MAISON is run by FRANZISKA FÜRPASS - who studied Fashion Design under the direction of Raf Simons and Veronique Branquinho - and SIA KERMANI, a Mixed-Media Artist, formerly Fashion Photographer, mainly responsible for Creative Branding and Management.
Their new interdisciplinary and modern approach to all visual and strategic decisions as a team, characterizes the new management of FEMME MAISON. Together they are recreating the label's identity; visually as well as regarding the label's philosophy.
