I was born in Paris and spent my youth on the Left Bank, exploring the streets, parks, and gardens—the renowned Jardin du Luxembourg being my very favorite and also, by an unexpected turn of events, my namesake. 

As a teenager I loved to stroll in the Quartier Latin and was fascinated by the stylish boutiques, taking it all in. I started my Art education at the Atelier de Sèvres and went on studying at the L’École de Design Industriel, a modern, Bahaus inspired design school. 

After graduation I moved to New York for several years to work in publishing. I kept designing and learning new skills. When living in Switzerland, I went back to school for a diploma in the luxury business at the University of Geneva. I also trained in the art of fine leather working. 

A few years ago our family moved to Atlanta. I started my brand Atelier Luxembourg (atelier is the French word for an artist’s workshop) to bring to life all of the handbag ideas I’ve gathered from my studies and travels.
