A local to Paris, Cyrielle had toured the major art museums of the capital before the age of six. A profound art lover, she graduated from La Sorbonne as a designer and art historian. She went on to complete postgraduate studies in New Zealand thanks to her excellent academic results and artistic talent. There she discovered eco-design practices, which echoed her ancestral roots in the Champagne region. So, after her first Master thesis on the fashion production chain, she decided to research sustainable fashion at Goldsmiths University of London and graduated there with a Master of Arts with Honors in Fashion. Her studies finished at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, where she interned as an assistant curator on the ‘Fashion Forward - three centuries of fashion’ show, working as an expert tour guide on ‘Dior, designer of dreams’ exhibition. Cyrielle discovered art thanks to a constant dialogue between theory and practice. As your guide, she draws your attention to those finer details, to the historical and artistic context, the influences and inspiration of the artist, as well as the artistic processes behind the artworks !
