Portrait of Heloise Dugain creator of the PERLE Romper sketch 

Where did your find the inspiration to realize the sketch of the PERLE Romper ?

In the memories of my childhood, my own little girl clothes, my holidays in Tuscany or in Dordogne where I drew this romper. I grew as the only girl among boys, I still remember the flared dresses sewn by my grand mother. Then, when my daughter Rosalie was born, I started designing clothes I couldn’t find in shops, vintage, modern and comfortable at the same time.

When did you start drawing ?

I started when I was 3 and my drawings were almost always clothes.

When you are not drawing for Marsou what is (are) your activity(ies) ?

I have my own label of costume jewelry called Les Precieuses Ridicules. And because I cannot stop drawing, between 2 pairs of earrings, I draw ! Illustrations or clothes for private clients.

What kind of decoration did you choose for your children’s bedroom ?

I must confess that I have a passion for the seconhand trade which invades all our flat, as well as Rosalie’s bedroom. However to keep cosiness, bedlinen comes from « La cerise sur le gâteau », small decoration items are from « Perlin paon paon » and the paper balls in her bedroom are from « Sous le lampion ». All these items so our home does not look like a caravan !

Which are your favorite kids friendly spots in your neighborhood ?

We have been living in Bordeaux for two years only, we are very lucky as we have a family house near Bordeaux in which we spend most of our week-ends. When we are in Bordeaux during week-end, we enjoy the brunch in Darwin. In September, we will start the mini baby gym !
