As a French Canadian who grew up in Austria, I have been influenced by countless stories
& fairy tales surrounding a variety of cultures.
Inspired by The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, this “Look” combines
my passion for knitwear with my deeply-rooted love for storytelling.
Handknit vest and short, using hand-dyed yarns.

An embroidery in the shape of a rose adorns the right shoulder of the vest.
