Wise-Women

 

As part of the campaign, Wacoal and Wise Women are working with six female artists to create unique pieces of art that are inspired by the female form. Founded in June 2017 by Séverine Redon and Maroussia Rebecq, Wise Women are a circle of women in France engaged in arts and culture, who help to empower and inspire women through shared cultural experiences. The six pieces of art will be showcased at Wacoal’s Capture Beauty exhibition, taking place at La Villa Rose. The exhibition will launch on International Women’s Day on the 8th March 2019, running until the 16th March and will be open for consumers across two consecutive weekends. The artwork will also be available to purchase with proceeds going towards Wise Women to help support a future generation of artists.

ALICE GUITTARD

 

Born in 1986, Alice Guittard is a French artist from Nice who graduated from Villa Arson in 2013. Guittard’s artistic approach is never defined in advance, she is influenced by her life experiences.

Alice has a personal collection of several thousand photography shots that she is yet to showcase. She loves photography as it freezes a memory in time.
