Let me introduce you: Alice

It’’s time to have a quick chat with Alice, who has recently joined our Marseille office.


Job at Sessùn ?

I’m a textile designer, which enables me to do all sorts of different things! My main role is to design exclusive motifs for Sessun for our prints as well as design knitwear patterns and fabric weaves. I also assist Amelie with our accessories collection. Sometimes my job is quite manual. For example I created the window displays for our boutiques in Aix, Avignon and Lille for our summer collection by covering stones with crochet, embroidering lace and making little fabric pompoms.

How did you discover Sessùn ?

 I only recently started working at Sessun. I had heard of the label before and it was one of my professors at Lyon who thought that my designs were along the same lines as Sessun’s and encouraged me to get in touch with them.I did some work experience in the Marseille office, and when I found out that Emma was looking for an assistant stylist a few months later, I contacted her immediately!

What are your favourite pieces in the current collection ?

My list is rather long! But if I had to choose I would say the Ilo jacket, the She Wants dress, the Capuano jumper, and and….

What is your favourite place to hang out ?

I never go far! I love having a barbecue in the sunshine on my balcony.

What’s on your current Ipod playlist ?

Sunday Morning – The Velvet Underground & Nico

Liar Liar -The Castaways

Roman – Housse de Racket

The country you would love to visit ?

The next place I'd like to visit would have to be Montenegro, or California, again.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years time ?

Time will tell.
