This month, I introduce you to Caroline , blogger and creator of the Ann&Line brand.
A young woman who left her job and her country to follow her husband and who has recreated a universe for herself with her brand Ann&Line of which I am already a fan.
You can find her collection on her blog or by contacting her by mail.
What is your job?
I don’t know if I really have a profession with a name, I’m not really a stylist or a designer, I haven’t done any studies for that anyway. I originally am a physiotherapist and osteopath, I sold my office in the Paris region in 2008 to follow my husband to Zurich. And after taking a break of a few years to watch my two children grow up, life took me on an unexpected path. I created my clothing brand, Ann&Line, at the end of 2013. Everything is falling into place, I’m learning as I go, it’s exciting.

Your favourite trends and designers?
Now I almost only wear what I make… I have to represent my brand, and all the time I’m asked, « This is pretty, is it from you? » A piece of clothing that’s being worn always shows off better. Besides, I’m a fan of Isabel Marant’s style, Chanel, St Laurent…

Leopard leggings with a zebra-striped top…
