I, Aurelia, established Antoinette Paris in 2017 in the USA while I was living in Atlanta with my husband. It was the second time I was living abroad and I had the project to bring the traditional French clothes heritage in the USA. Now I am soon the mother of a second baby.
Heritage is at the heart of Antoinette, with my designs developing from my French roots and the traditional clothing, especially smocked dresses, I grew up in.
Known for sophisticated embroideries and hand smocking, and decorative details, every Antoinette collection manifests elaborate yet elegant design. Today Paris is our home and we are working with a designer from les Art Deco Paris and an employee.
My interest about children’s clothing started as a child. I remembered how I loved to wear dresses and specially to dress up like a princess. I really wanted to bring the traditional French clothes heritage to all the little girls of the world. I feel inspired by smocked dresses because they are timeless pieces which respect the innocence of childhood, they make children feel like children. Such heirlooms awake the princess lying in every little girl. In addition, smocked dresses design offers infinite possibilities including floral subtle embroideries, best quality cotton, sophisticated shades prints and cuts.
