Emmanuelle Brossard, happy french mum of two boys, and newly Brooklyn fashion designer, launched Paper Dream Brooklyn in 2016. A former teacher and a textile artist, she taught history of art, textile design and visual arts. Among all the textile techniques she loves, she discovered the versatility and artistic potential of silk-printing and translates now her generous vision in simple, fresh arty prints for kids clothing collections. Also a self-taught stylist, she loves creating volumes and shapes around the human body, developing her own patterns in many variations as possible.
" As an art teacher, I’m passionate about history of art and primitivism. And fascinated by the way artists reset their practices , looking for their inner child : Picasso always said that he never draw like a child when he was an actual child, but it took all his life to learn how to do it. We all have to learn from our inner child: paper cuts, colors layers, simple shapes inspired by nature. Chance is also what kids use to create, and their mistakes help them discover and experiment more and more. Likewise, I use the chance in my printing process , making them unique, and each item a little work of art."
