Old endings, new beginnings

Dear all,

After 3 very exciting years of creating and developing the fashion label ‘Marion Cointot’ we now choose to announce you the end of our independent brand. Several recent evolutions in the fashion world have led to this decision. The increasing costs in development and production, coupled with a tendency toward a fast-fashion that is choking the creative process at this point seem to be no longer compatible with our vision of carefully designing and creating unique pieces for a niche public.
As (slightly naive) enthusiasts for great design and local, highly quality-controlled production we dare to hope that the fashion business -along with the fashion ‘consumers’- can strive towards a better valorisation of original designs produced under ethical conditions.

For now, we are greatful for all the valuable lessons and fruitful collaborations and we would like to thank you all for your kind support and all the enthusiastic reactions to the collections.

Marion Cointot hereby wishes to invite interested professionals in the area of fashion design, costume design (film/theatre) for future collaborations and free-lance projects, which will be carefully considered.

All the best,

Marion Cointot
