ELISE HAMEAU HAS BEEN PASSIONATE ABOUT FASHION AS FAR BACK AS SHE CAN REMEMBER. A GRADUATE OF STUDIO BERÇOT, SHE BEGAN HER CAREER AS A JOURNALIST FOR GLOSSY FASHION MAGAZINES. IN 2011, SHE RETURNED TO HER FIRST LOVE WHEN A FRIEND ASKED HER TO DESIGN A WEDDING GOWN. A FEW SKETCHES, FITTINGS, AN ‘I DO’ AND A FEW TEARS LATER, HER BRAND WAS BORN. IN SEPTEMBER 2012, ELISE HAMEAU OPENED A SHOWROOM FOR HER MADE-TO-MEASURE CREATIONS. HER PHILOSOPHY: NEVER HIDE THE BRIDE-TO-BE. ELISE DRAWS HER INSPIRATION FROM THE PRESENT WITH A RESPECTFUL NOD TO THE PAST, PARTICULARLY THE TWENTIES AND THE SEVENTIES, TWO OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PERIODS IN FASHION HISTORY. FOR ELISE, EVERYTHING STARTS WITH A PERFECT LINE. THE ESSENCE OF THE BRIDE’S PERSONALITY MUST SHINE THROUGH; EVERYTHING ELSE HAMEAU IS MERELY DETAIL.
