” Hi ! If we haven’t met, I’m Floriane, a french textile designer. Trained in fashion and textile design, I’ve launched my own fabric manipulation based studio & create collections of creative textile objects & accessories [Have a look here : Flo Home Delight ]
Throughout my career, I’ve been asked to teach fashion students how to do these fabric manipulation techniques, and how to use them for their fashion collection. Now, I’m offering textile workshops for you and your team or students as well !
I’m available for any workshop and talks around textiles, fashion design, creativity and fabric manipulations, IRL or online. “
Past textile workshops examples :

Showing students the Canadian Smock techniques, so they can make samples of different patterns. Also showing them how to include these samples in their fashion designs, using draping, pictures and sketchbooks. Creativity, variety and explorations are the key elements encouraged !
Introduction to all pleat types, how to create patterns and pleating textiles using the cardboard technique (textile sandwiched in 2 pleated cardboards then heat or steam pressed). Introduction to irregular pleats like gathers, shirring, ruffles and sample production in form of a pleat encyclopedia
Explorative Fashion & Textile Sketchbooks
A general theme is given to students as a starting point so they can start to explore it, and to find some personal resonance. Then each student makes a series of fabric manipulated samples, in order to explore and express their personal theme, that will become the base research of their fashion collection.
Fabric analysis using real samples, discovering fabrication methods & textile classifications, developing fabric recognition using both eyes & hands, comparing quality, hand, drape, thickness, properties of all types of fabrics
[as explored in this article : The different types of Fabric ]
I also worked as a substitute teacher in a french fashion school and taught fashion design, textile design, and costume history.
