After studying fashion design at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture in Paris, Béatrice Lissague began her career in New York. She worked for Diane Von Furstenberg and the Gap Group.
At the age of 25, she founded her company of designing and manufacturing high-end fashion accessories: scarves, jewelry, hair ornaments. She set up her manufacturing workshop in France with a team of more than 15 people, and opened her own showroom in Manhattan. Her creations were distributed in prestigious stores in the USA (Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Bendel, Fred Segal ...), in Japan (Tobu, Shiseido the Ginza ...), in London (Harrod's), in France (Galleries Lafayette, Spring, Bon Marché ...), Lane Crawford (Hong Kong) ...
Passionate about colors, materials and craftsmanship, Béatrice collaborated with prestigious French manufacturers of fabrics, ribbons, passementeries, trimmings ... which provided the materials for her collections. She was able to discover and explore the many skills that inspire her current pictorial work. Already, the artistic bias of her accessory designs revolved around the mixing of materials and playing with colors, textures and techniques!
After fifteen years spent in the whirlwind of fashion between Paris and New York, Beatrice and her family settled down in Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil in the Loire Valley in the middle of the vineyards which offered a rich source of inspiration.
Today, Beatrice lives and dedicates herself entirely to her artistic work in Paris between trips that allow her to satisfy her immense curiosity of others, their countries, their cultures and their craftmanship!
