Avant de poser leurs valises à Roubaix, Magali et Pauline se sont rencontrées à Shanghai, ville dans laquelle elles ont toutes les deux vécu pendant cinq ans. Là-bas, à dix mille kilomètres de chez lui, le duo décide de créer sa marque de vêtements. D’abord un continent, l’Asie. Un pays, la Chine. Et un enchainement de road-trips de villes en villes aux architectures multiples, aux populations et aux cultures à part qui donnent le tempo mode de Not So Far. Comprendre : des pièces aux imprimés forts, des matières nobles, des coupes minimales, des finitions impeccables.
As reported on essential website Fashion Network, and in the French newspaper La Voix du Nord and industry trade publication Journal du Textile, Emmanuelle and Olivier Axer are the new directors of Maisons de Mode.
Following the February arrival of Philippe Zmirou, who took the position of president of the incubator-accelerator, the duo who founded Lille’s legendary multi-brand concept-store Série Noire took over as Maisons de Mode directors in May. This move is part of a strategy that started at the beginning of this year to breathe new life into the Maisons de Mode project. The first rewards of this new arrival: the expansion of the administrative advisory board to include new members such as ShowroomPrivé, le Centre Européen des Textiles/the European Centre for Innovative Textiles (CETI), the Piscine museum, EuraTechnologies-Blanchemaille, Talent Spotting and other renowned private entities who will participate in the further development of Maisons de Mode.
Welcome, Emmanuelle and Olivier. We wish you all the best…
