Interview with Lauranne De Jaegher, fashion designer

Streetglams: can you tell us about yourself in a few words?

Lauranne De Jaegher: While I started with studies in communication, I graduated in fashion design in 2014, and have been working in fashion since then. Currently, I work on my own projects, and I am also an intern at Natan.

SG: Can you tell us more about the collections featured today?

LDJ: I was inspired by the movie Black Swan, and more particularly by the dual character of Nina. I drew a lot from that duality to produce the destructured painting on the outfits. It fitted my spontaneous style of painting.

SG: Oh, I get you there! I myself have been inspired by the movie and the brilliant performance of Natalie Portman. Streetglams loves Black Swan too!

LDJ: Indeed! As for the dancing, I decided to forgo the ballet aspect altogether, and focus instead on the precious, light traits of feathers and lace. I wanted the outfits to be both feminine and spectacular.

SG: Any future projects?

LDJ: Well, I took part in quite a few shows and fashion contests, recently, like Talons Aiguilles (jury’s award), Ethno Tendance (first prize), or the Salon du Chocolat to name a few. This year, I will participate again in Salon du Chocolat, and I plan to go further with feathers, how to use them through different techniques. I am busy with that sort of research at the moment. I hope I’ll launch a new collection soon.

LDJ: Thank you, that’s so sweet! And thank you for the amazing story last time, the whole team did a great job!
