Founder of MaisonCléo
Ok guys, as you know winter is coming.
But this year we want to be ready and instead of waiting for the cold, we chased it. Indeed, for this collection, we decided to meet Marie Dewet in the north of France (Lille) the founder of the fashion label MaisonCléo.
MaisonCléo it is a family story - Marie founded this brand with her mother. They imagine and create each piece by hand.
So hurry to order, as you can imagine the collections are very limited!
