Valérie Berckmans officially presented her first women’s ready-to-wear collection in 2003, one year after graduating in fashion design from the Institut Saint-Luc in Brussels. In 2006, she set up her studio-boutique in the Dansaert district, the trendy place in Brussels where artistic creation is in full swing. She designs a line of clothing for women in a graphic and minimalist style, evoking an airy femininity often brightened up by particular details. The collections are exclusively made in Belgium and France, out of sustainable fabrics (organic cottons, dead stocks, upcycled second-hand pieces, etc.). Since 2014, she works in duo with the fashion designer Meyrueis De Bruyn. Together, they developed a zero-waste project to manage the leftovers of their production: they design, for example, a lingerie collection & a kids collection using those smaller pieces of fabric so that nothing is wasted.
