Here's the idea laying behind Elise Aucouturier : wake up at night, sweep away her dust and her classicism to replace them with sheer, elegant, trendy and sometimes insolent new outfits.
Elise Raphalen was born in Paris in 1969. After graduating from Parisian fashion school Esmod as a designer specializing in lingerie, Elise started her career with the American company Vanity Fair designing for different brands. After several stints in famous designer’s studios (Marithé et François Girbaud, Christian Dior, etc.), and two babies, she decided to create her own brand in 2001.
Since then each collection attempts to reflect her own style: modern, elegant and undeniably French.
The lingerie brand has existed for five years now, and has expanded in Europe, in the US, in Russia and in Japan. Every Parisian big stores are found of her very unique style and don't hesitate to describe her as an unavoidable name of the lingerie world.
