You can take the girl out of Leeds, but can you take the Leeds out of the girl?
If you have met Ariane, or ever visited Leeds you will know what we mean!
Born in Leeds, England, Ariane developed a love of fashion while studying at Leeds College of Art and Design. Growing up and learning various skills and techniques from her family, and immersing herself in the different subcultures of her vibrant city helped her develop a unique style at a young age. Taking this bubbling passion and combining it with further studies of the Contour Fashion Degree at De Montfort University, she was set for coming across to Melbourne – the place she now calls home having recently been granted permanent residency.
Rarely following celebrities or having interest in the red carpets, it actually surprises Ariane sometimes that she now has quite a repertoire of them that she has been fortunate enough to work with. From Dita Von Teese and Collette Dinnigan to Danni Minogue and the head of Madonna Australia (and many other clients in between) she has had the pleasure of working on some amazing collections, garments and costumes.
2016 saw a big change for Ariane in the way that she works, finally moving from being a full time employee to running her own business. Now working as a freelance lingerie designer and hand-making corsets and costumes for clients to name a few of the projects she is involved with. She has a love for collaborating and working with other creatives and always makes time to fit someone in if she believes in what they are trying to achieve.
