Bio of Nelly Saunier:
A master of art and a recipient of the Prix Liliane Bettencourt pour l’Intelligence de la Main and Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Nelly Saunier practices this ancient profession which she invents and liberates its traditional conventions to the world of fashion. While many fashion designers are drawn by her talent, she however, associates her limitless creativity to the works of watchmakers, jewellers and silversmiths. Her personal creations play with nature and illusion along with the texture and the ornamental dimension of feathers.
