Her very fine and delicate designs explore mistakes and imperfections, and how they can become part of a design. These mistakes represent scars and the idea that the memory of a trauma will persist, but that it is possible to live with it.
Ariane creates textiles that help women feel safe in their own bodies; and focuses on developing textures that awaken the sensations and emotions of happiness, serenity, self, beauty, self-esteem and empowerment.
