Visitors to Paris are enchanted by la tour Eiffel, but did you ever think you’d be able to wear the world-famous tower? Designer Aurore François makes it happen with Mademoiselle Felee, a line of jewelry inspired by Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Aurore’s design career began when she was just a child, creating furniture and clothes for her dolls. She made it to the famed Studio Berçot in Paris, before working with the likes of Guy Laroche and Karine Arabian. Aurore also worked as a graphic designer and a photo stylist for fashion magazines. Recently, she was able to achieve her dream of launching her own line of jewelry. Aurore thinks of the Eiffel Tower as a “lovely woman,” and incorporates the structure’s mix of delicate lace-like latticework and tough materials into her designs, which are made with laser-cut brass. She has several takes on the Eiffel Tower – some are minimalist, some are ultra-feminine, all are just beautiful. We find out where she gets her inspiration and why she is so captivated by the Eiffel Tower.
