Meeting with Françoise Nottrelet. This Caribbean-born graduate of the Ecole Boulle is now an enthusiastic Parisian. Her absolute fashion icons are Romy Schneider and Tracee Ellis Ross. When she takes off her Development and Content Director's hat, she spends her free time riding horses, doing exhibitions, and traveling around the world (55+ countries). She is also an equal rights activist. Françoise could live anywhere in the world, as long as there are "interesting people, great weather and wi-fi".
YOUR FIRST JUMPSUIT ?
Red and white, I must have been 10 or 11 and it was a ski suit… not really practical and comfortable but really warm.
HOW MANY JUMPSUITS DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR WARDROBE ?
A small dozen, all seasons combined, I’m a real jumpsuits ADDICT, a piece which must be in my top 3 to wear. And my ELLOZZE jumpsuit is one of my favorites.
HOW DO YOU FEEL IN A JUMPSUIT?
100% myself. Smart, sexy and cool at the same time.
IS IT EASY TO PEE IN A JUMPSUIT?
AN ICON IN JUMPSUIT ?
Tracee Ellis Ross, Diana Ross’ daughter. My absolute fashion idol.
LACE, TANK TOP OR NAKED UNDER YOUR JUMPSUIT ?
