I LOVE ASKING MY GRANDMOTHER TO READ ME THE CARDS

 

YOUR MANTRA :

Don't quit your daydream until you succeed 

 

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO START YOUR BRAND ?

DURING MY STUDIES AT KEDGE BUSINESS SCHOOL, IN MARSEILLE, I DID AN INTERnSHIP IN NYC, AT CAPSULE SHOW. DURING ONE YEAR, I WAS IN CHARGE OF THE ORGANIZATION OF THE SHOW, DEALING WITH THE DESIGNERS. FINALLY, I DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO BE ONE AND STARTED CREATING MY FIRST COLLECTION SOON AFTEr. when I came back in france to end my studies, in master II EVENTS and marketing communication, i had six moths to make an other internship, but i decided to enjoy this time to create my own brand.

 

WHO IS THE VAN PALMA GIRL ?

SHE’S AN INDEPENDANT AND FREE-SPIRIT WOMAN. SHE HAS AMBITION AND SHE LOVES TRAVELLING.

 

IF A PLAYLIST COULD DEFINE THE VAN PALMA’S UNIVERSE…

I’D BE A MIX OF ROCK AND PEACEFUL MUSIC, THE TYPE OF SOUND YOU LISTEN TO catch the good vibes .

CADILLAC GIRLS – ONLY REAL

CALIFORNIA SUNRISE – ROAR

ELA NEVAGA – ALLAH LAS

CRYSTAL SHIP – THE DOORS

GAY THOUGHTS – THE GROWLERS

 

YOU ARE CURRENTLY LISTENING TO…

« QUE LA VIE EST BELLE », BY BRIGITTE FONTAINE. IT’S AN OLD SONG, I THINK MY PARENTS WERE IN THEIR TWENTIES. IT’S SWEET AND ENTHUSIASTIC…. AND IT’S FRENCH!

 

ONE ITEM IN YOUR WARDROBE YOU COULD’NT LIVE WITHOUT ?

A LONG DRESS, AND A DAKOTA BLACK SPICE !

 

BIGGEST ACCHIEVEMENT TO DATE ?

VAN PALMA, DAY TO DAY. THE SURPRISE THAT FINALLY ALL WENT SO FAST WHILE I DIDN’T EXPECTED SO MUCH IN ONE YEAR…

 

ONE MEMORIES YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH US …

I REMEMBER MY LAST SHOOTING IN PALM SPRING, CALIFORNIA, LAST SUMMER. Our model, Alde, who we love and with who WE HAD A LOT OF FUN WHILE THE RYTHME WAS QUITE SPEED. THE SUN SET VERY QUICKLY AND WE HAD TO MOVE, PACK EVERYTHING AND TAKE THE CAR EVERY 15 MINUTES TO RUN AFTER THE RIGHT LIGHT. I LOVE THE IDEA TO RUN AFTER THE END OF THE DAY TO CATCH IT UP.

 

WHAT HAS BEEN INSPIRING YOU LATELY ?

MY LAST TRIP TO AUSTRALIA, FEW WEEKS AGO, THE ENERGY OF THE LANDSCAPE AND THE CITIES. I REMEMBER ONE AFTERNOON AT ICEBERG , IN BONDI, WITH MY GLASS OF WHITE WINE. I WAS THINKING ABOUT WHAT I’VE BEEN THROUGH THESE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS.. I THOUGHT THE VIEW AND THE LOCATION WERE STUNNING AND I PROMISED MYSELF TO CONTINUE EXPERIENCING MOMENTS LIKE THOSE AS MUCH AS I CAN
