About Claire Dartigues
Claire Dartigues is a label offering a circular lifestyle through a creative studio, a Fashion and accessories line, IMAGINE films. Based on three pillars, creativity, uniqueness and commitment, Claire Dartigues uses creativity to address various environmental and social topics.
Born in Paris of a doctor, humanist father and a mother brought up in the “do it yourself” tradition. Claire quickly learned to transform and make her own creations. She knew very early in her career as a designer that she was going to marry the concept of sustainability to her pieces. Thus, Claire's ambition is to create a chic and engaged community. She realized that to break the codes she had to learn to master them.
She began to learn the fundamentals of business and management at Paris Dauphine University where she graduated with a master's degree in Luxury Management. Claire then gained experience at Chloé, Louboutin and others to then decide to go to New York where she graduated from Parsons School in fashion design. She had the opportunity to work in the studio of great designers like Asher Levine (costume designers for Beyoncé ..) or Martin Greenfield (tailor for US presidents). Claire has participated in the Redress Design Award two consecutive years and received the Redress Design Alumni Award in 2018 Hong Kong. She also exhibited her pieces at the FIFA Museum in Zurich to support the voice of women in football.
Since 2018, she lives in Paris where she created an eponymous concept: Claire Dartigues divided between a creative studio that promotes creativity to solve social and environmental problems as well as a line of couture sportswear, specializing in transformation and up-cycling. Claire is positioned to offer innovative concepts in France and internationally.
In 2020, Claire decides to promote the meeting of talents and creates the IMAGINE concept in the form of a Youtube video series that she produces. She will set up her workshop in extraordinary places to meet different talents and present us performances between sewing, sport, music, dance and art.
