NOLWENN FALIGOT is a high-end womenswear brand where each detail narrates a story through considered clothes and accessories.
A workwear chic line, merging elegance with a utilitarian feel for confident women moving effortlessly within comfortable and generous clothes. It is about finding a fine balance between a functional appeal and an audacious way of reworking garments.
Creative yet strongly grounded in reality, this brand showcases a contemporary and authentic wardrobe where a palette of fresh and deep colours is highlighted by bold patterns.
The brand – resolutely anchored in Brittany – is a subtle encounter between a Celtic legacy and travels all over the world.
It is also an invitation to opt in favour of a more sensible consumption through a sustainable wardrobe with long lasting garments whether in limited editions or as unique pieces.
Throughout her studies, Nolwenn Faligot has gained experience and established professional relationships (in particular with sponsor and partner Armor Lux, Brittany, France). Thus, she has interned internationally - whether in London (Meadham Kirchhoff) or in Tôkyô (Hiroko Koshino) - which has provided her with a variety of approaches of the creative process.
Having studied Fashion for 7 years in London: first in London College of Fashion, then in Kingston University (Bachelor in Fashion) and finally the renowned Central Saint Martins for her Masters in Fashion - Womenswear; this Breton individual draws on her perception of London's multicultural influences as well as on her own Celtic heritage.
Nolwenn Faligot has worked as a Junior then Senior designer for the brand NEHERA. Showing in Paris Fashion Week, but with its studio based in its birth place Bratislava (Slovakia) NEHERA combines unique shapes with timeless craftsmanship. Four collections were prepared annually with the aim of providing a singular silhouette in high quality fabrics with precise attention to details.
In addition, to setting up her own eponymous brand based in Brittany, Faligot is currently a freelance designer working with different brands in Brittany and internationally.
