Who else but a literature enthusiast to create a brand called Heroines? Originally, the designer made her name by creating collections inspired by characters from novels. It has since turned to a more vintage style. ‘To embody what we are with impertinence, humour and simplicity’ is the motto of the brand, based in Paris’ Marais district. Short dresses, long dresses, waisted or flared, round or low necks... there’s something for all body types.

Sézane might never have seen the light of day had its creator not had a genius idea. It all started in 2005, when her sister moved to London and left her a bag full of clothes. Full of passion and ideas, she began to customise the clothes and resell them on eBay. And so it began. She decided to launch an e-shop in 2008 and focus on micro-collections. Sales exploded. She opened her first boutique in Paris. Dresses in lace, silk, linen and cashmere, with floral, checked or plain prints – it’s a must-have brand.

Make My Lemonade
Haven’t heard of Make My Lemonade? It’s never too late to get to know this brand, which has become a staple in Paris in just a few years. It all started from a lifestyle blog run by Lisa Gachet, baptised the ‘queen of DIY’. This Bordeaux native, who loves to ‘tinker’, ‘draw’ and ‘cut out’, shares her creations. She had the brilliant idea of providing a monthly pattern for a DIY item of clothing – and the business took off. Since then, Lisa has opened a concept store by the Canal Saint-Martin in Paris. You’ll find the designer’s favourite pieces here – floral, polka dot and striped dresses – and DIY workshops are also held regularly, to inspire customers to make their own outfits.
