Fashion’s greatest power is that it not only transforms the

person who wears it, but it also transforms the world the

wearer inhabits.

Marine Penvern, designer and artist, has been making

transformative apparel since her childhood years growing

up on a centuries-old manor in Brittany, France.

With roots both Celtic and bohemian, Penvern’s styles have a

way of seaming historical and contemporary elements,

achieving a look that is timeless and timely.

Using select designer fabrics, including rich cottons, wools

and silks, Marine Penvern creates looks that evoke the

fantasy of magical realms as much as they embody urban

comfort, individual style and self-confidence.

After having run an acclaimed atelier out of the

Lower East Side, Penvern has restructured her

practice as a maker of clothing to offer a range of

made-to-order autre couture adult and children


Each piece uniquely expresses Penvern’s

playful vision and fearless attitude, and is styled to

the unique necessities of the wearer.

As a mother, Penvern understands that children need

comfortable clothes that allow their bodies freedom

of expression without fussy zippers or rigid fabrics.

And as an adult, she identifies with the grown-up’s

desire to be classic, playful and beyond fashion.

To arrange a studio visit, please send an email to Marine

Penvern at and be sure

to include your name, contact information, and at

least one dream that keeps your fire burning.
