MISS BE ADDICTED
Having grown into a beguiling international fashion icon, the designer still stays close and true to her roots. Fans are a priority at Miss Be, where Emmanuelle Blanc responds to emails and social media communication personally.
With this personal approach in mind, she created Miss Be Addicted to which fans submit photographs of themselves wearing pieces of the Miss Be collections.
The result is a cache of images expressing emotion through fashion and art along with an appreciation for the label.
The designer notes that this is one of her favourite aspects of her work. It is ultimately the fans to whom Miss Be finds herself utterly and truly, Addicted.
Emmanuelle Blanc, the owner and designer of Miss Be began her illustrious life in France. After having her novel published at the age of 18 and working in the T.V and film industry whilst growing up, she began a life of travel, absorbing cultures wherever she found her feet.
Unable to source choice pieces to wear, she began making her her own garments. In 1999, with the revenue made from selling pancakes in Mapusa, Goa, Emmanuelle would buy materials to create pieces for her stall set humbly behind her pancake stand. Time, passion and dedication have changed many things since Miss Be’s unpresuming beginnings.
Now based in L.A, the designer is fits celebrities such as former Miss India, Kanishtha Dhankar photographed by Prabuddha Das Gupta, and has 42 stores internationally including `the USA, numerous countries in Europe, Uk, Switzerland, Israel, Australia, Canada & Brazil.
