Through her collections, Peggy Derolez proposes a singular approach to material, a sensory experience. Stylized plumages, fur and hybrid materials play with perceptions. By subtle interventions, she questions codes and the traditional textile crafts.

Graduate of the High School Duperré in textile design and embroidery. Peggy has since cultivated the importance of gesture in the creative process.
In 2008, a singular encounter with the designer Rose Morant marks the beginning of the exploration of ancient Asian know-how. For five years, she was responsible for the research and development of rare crafts, in Myanmar, Pakistan, China and Vietnam, and developed collections of fashion accessories for French Luxury Houses.
Back in France, she was awarded the Prix de la Vocation and selected for a two years residence at the Ateliers de Paris. In 2013, she creates her own studio as an exploration and creation pole that both proposes the creation of amazing textiles and consulting, always guided by the desire to preserve the exception of handmade.
