From a young age Marie Marquet, the founder of MiniMe Paris, has loved creating accessories and clothing. She is a big child fascinated by fairy tales, the imaginery, and pop surrealism. She studied at the Ecole de la Chambre Syndical de la Couture Parisienne, and has worked at several « Grandes Maisons » including Hermes, Balmain, and Chanel. In 2014 she won a young talent competition with a photography session of her hair accessories and hats as the prize. This photography session birthed the book which later became the portfolio which has continued to inspire us each season. Soon after Marie presented the concept of the brand « MiniMe » to the managers of the Première Classe trade show. Seduced and enchanted, they proposed that Marie should present her collection with a brand concept at their September show. The adventure begins ! All summer she worked to produce the collection and refine the brand’s image and concept. In September 2014, MiniMe was presented to the first time at Première Classe. Colette, Isetan, Corso Como, and Podium enthusiastically signed MiniMe Paris! The brand developed quickly and in its second season launched a line of prêt à porter, and subsequently established a Parisian atelier « La Maison de MiniMe » (« The House of MiniMe »). 2016, MiniMe Paris won the Designer’s Appartement contest. Today MiniMe Paris accessories and clothing are sold in shops around the world and collaborate with compagnies such as Disneyland Paris or Universal and Emoji.
