Who is behind Lysimaque?
Lysimaque is a small fashion brand founded by Floriane in 2018.
At that time, Floriane had been sewing her clothes for some time. She learned very young, the summer, with her grandmother, in the South of France, in the shade of the song of the cicadas. Because her grandmother's mother, Grandma Neva, was a seamstress by trade, in her small village in the Alps.
Bleuet, the little top crossed on the back, imagined, designed, sponsored during a scorching summer, marked a new stage in this adventure. Because it rained on Instagram, the idea germinated
to offer it as a downloadable pattern. So Floriane rolls up her sleeves, learns the basics of patronage by herself, discovers the joys of reconnecting with mathematics, does violence with free software and launches out. It is the beginning of a joyful adventure, of several collections of patterns and joyful collaborations.
And in 2020, a new step is taken. Because originally, Floriane dreams of creating clothes from A to Z. But while remaining committed to a fair and sustainable approach. That's good, she loves to rummage and to hunt around: here is how the materials of the Lysimaque creations are gathered, before being transformed (thanks to the fairy hands of Margot) into unique creations made to order for our customers.
