Founding member of the label UAMEP and ambassador member with her garments’ brand P.O.P., Anne-Laure Eustache has multiple talents at her creative bow : graduated designer from Ecole Supérieure des Arts Appliqués Duperré, recently iconographer graduated from Lille University, she grew up between Vienna, where she spend 15 years in her childhood, and the North of France where she now lives and works.
Settled in Ateliers Jouret in Roubaix, she constantly experiments the boundaries between art and fashion, images and words, organic materials and textiles. Poetry, alternative cultures, know-how and savoir-vivre of the world inhabit her and are permanent sources of inspiration in her creative work. The P.O.P. collections, entirely made by Anne-Laure herself in her workshop with fabrics scrupulously sourced from long-standing French suppliers, are thus refined, easy to appropriate and at the same time loaded with dreams and sensitivity.
« Kim », « W(e)aves », « Pensées abstraites d’une grenade en hiver », « La Course », their names are an invitation to an imaginary and emotional travel, just like the chameleon clothes that compose them. In her approach, the designer is in constant search and tries to “make simplicity a discipline of life “while accepting the complexity of human feelings” as she explains in her Chinese portrait for Hummade magazine (to discover here). Exigency, thinking, respect, human and artistic commitment, minimalism … so many biases that found the essence of the label UAMEP of which Anne-Laure Eustache is a perfect embodiment.
