November 16th, 2017 from 6 pm to 8 pm : Louve is an independent jewelry line based in Montreal. The collections are handmade and designed by Virginie Turcot-Lamarre. Her work combines the art of crafting with fashion design and falls halfway between an artistic practice and a small business ownership. For both wood and leather, materials are mostly recovered, with great attention to details and respect for the raw materials. All pieces of wood are exclusively made from tree species of Quebec’s forest and are used in a way that highlights each material’s uniqueness.
Through her conference, Virginie Turcot-Lamarre invites you to discover the universe within which she creates her collections.
