After growing up in France, designer Maud Heline now creates her eponymous collections out of her Brooklyn Studio, where she fuses her chic French aesthetic with the no non-sense New York vibe. Time is precious for the busy designer and down time means getting back to the basics, indulging in her happy pleasures of movie nights and long Sunday brunches.
Founder & Creative Director, Maud Heline
Location: Brooklyn, NY
French designer Maud Heline, who worked with the likes of Isabel Marant, Balmain in Paris and Maiyet in New York, didn’t quite intend to start her own fashion line so soon. However, fate intervened and helped make her childhood dream a reality sooner than even she expected.
While working on her portfolio to find a design job, Maud received such great feedback on her shirt samples. She decided to send her look book to renowned retailers Barneys and Colette to see what they thought. Lo and behold, her designs were immediately snapped up by both boutiques, propelling Maud into her first production. It’s been non-stop since and this coming season marks the designer’s first collection of full looks.
