The Roland Garros tournament is currently animating the city of Paris. At the pace of the sets, the public admires the exchanges between the players and their outfits … Not really fashion, you may say, but the little Frenchie Marine Serre could convince you otherwise. The new darling of the Parisian fashion is inspired by her former passion to offer superb collections that buyers are snapping up. Yet the success of this young designer was not written in advance.
Marine SERRE grew up in the South-West of France in Brive-la-Gaillarde, raised by an SNCF supervisor father and a mother working in the French administration. Until she was 16, she only lived for tennis, even considered as a young French tennis prospect, but a failure at the Roland Garros selections pushed her to another path.
She then hangs up the racket and joins a school of applied arts where she discovers and develops a new rope to her bow, being a fashion designer. She continued her studies at La Calade de Marseille, then at the Cambre de Bruxelles, from where she graduated in June 2016. Her resume is completed by several internships with leading designers, such as Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Maison Margiela or Dior … The world of fashion totally absolves her when, in the space of a few months, she is selected for ANDAM, for the Hyères Festival and as the winner of the LVMH 2017 award.
Her greatest asset is to combine sportswear and couture, to be creative and fresh. A pure and spontaneous soul as we love them in the fashion world. An innate but shy talent.
Believe us, keep an eye on this young nugget. French talent has not finished making us salivate. Jacquemus has better watch out, he may not be anymore the only French to seduce.
