As the most forward and sophisticated R&D laboratories and artistic workshops, these artisans sway Fashion with their exclusive savoirs-faire and satisfy its thirst of renewal in its tremendous journey.
Textile ennobling or the art of processing
Among the diverse talents presented at Maison d’Exceptions, Céline Sorigué et Alexandre Leu brought to light the textile finishing of their company Atelier Dynale. Arising from a generation of colors and fabrics lovers, the atelier enjoys not only an established recognition but also a strong and undeniable experience in the field of Haute Couture.
Whether giving its nobility back to the fabric, sublimating it or establishing end-to-end expertise, the workshop relies on its constant study of material and its pursuit of excellence.
According to Alexandre “No request is impossible”. For this child of Fashion, Color search and the greatness of savoirs-faire made him fall in love with his work and it still nourishes him everyday. About Céline, the creative figure of the workshop : Initially a fashion designer, she smartly harnesses her knowledge of tailoring to bring an innovative expansion to the venture.
The breakthroughs in Haute Decoration world as Céline Alexandre
The ambition of Alexandre and Céline is to communicate on both their developments for Haute Couture and their projects of Haute Decoration.
The initiative of Céline Alexandre is to transpose the savoirs-faire of textile finishing to create Haute Couture interiors. This approach meets a need : many projects of decoration (hotels, private houses, window displays, yachts…) are eager to bring these unique processes in their exceptional interiors.
