Shanshan Ruan created her eponymous brand in 2013 after winning ‘Le Prix du Public’ at the 27th Festival of Photography and Fashion in Hyères.
Since then, she has set up her workshop in Paris to create and manufacture her line of women's ready-to-wear.
Working in close collaboration with suppliers, craftsmen and workshops, Shanshan Ruan offers collections entirely made in France.
Anchored in textiles and craftsmanship, Shanshan’s creation is a representation of her vision of clothing - above all a functional object, yet so much more...
Among the various creative possibilities available to us today in raw materials, colours and sources, Shanshan knew which strings to pull to weave her universe and find the harmony between material and construction. She listens to the voice of the fabric and observes its movement, allowing the lines of construction to support and favour the form.
She subtly introduces traditional savoir-faire and reinterprets it in a modern way. Pleats for example, an embellishment more frequently seen in haute couture, are mixed with ready-to-wear materials and find their place in our daily wardrobe. The finesse of the pleats merges into a more contemporary shape, creating allure that is entirely unique.
'' Hello everyone, welcome to my online shop. It's an isle floating in the ocean of Internet, bearing a bit of me: my esthetic, my handy work, my perception of style.
I will try to update this place regularly with things that I have developed or found.
I hope you'll find something here that makes you happy.
