With the future dresses collection Pauline realises her dreams as a designer of timeless ‘slow fashion’.

The “ParyCorbie" brand is a countercurrent for today’s fast fashion.

A fashion line for every type of woman, a line in which every woman feels good and can blossom like a flower under the sun, like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.

A study of the 7 types of women has resulted into the 7 paintings, each with the name of a flower?

The different shapes of women can be found in these paintings.

They are 180 cm high and 110 cm wide and can be cherished in the hotel in Geel.

The paintings also include the sketches in pencil; these are the very first explorations for the shapes.

You’ll also get to see the drawings in ecoline. They will be used as a label in the dresses.

ParyCorbie wants to build a brand that represents:

  • Feeling good / Self-confidence
  • Suitable for different purposes (at work, on the move, at home)
  • Fitting reputation
  • Easy / fundamental basis
  • Fitting shape, proper alignment
  • Fitting color
  • Sustainable materials
  • Fair trade

Below you will find the preliminary sketches and studies of the different female sculptures.
