After studying at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, the Brussels-native went back home and launched a fashion blog where she was able to connect with editors, creatives and influencers in the fashion industry. That experience gave her the confidence to join the industry in a new way as a fashion designer. Living in Europe meant she had to wear knits 11 out of 12 months in a year, so it was only fitting she created a knitwear label.
Launched in 2016 in Brussels, the namesake brand features simple-cut, wardrobe essentials that see playful shapes and patterns, which are all made out of ethically sourced wool. Valentine mixes and matches colors that have a feminine yet eccentric quality. Each season sees a new update from small details such as cut-out shoulders or edgy zippers to distinctive colors and cool prints.
