Citizen of the world as she likes to define herself, the creator of the brand V de Vinster builds her collections during her many trips through India, Thailand and Peru. She stops in the markets or in the most remote shops to choose fabrics and threads, beads and charms that she uses in the realization of its models. The influence of local craftsmanship is reflected in an ethnic, chic and trendy fashion made of bags, dresses, jackets, sweaters and tops. Involved in a fair trade approach, Virginie de Vinster entrusts workshops set up in the countries that she visits that do the embroidery of her fabrics and the knitting of her wools. For example, in Benin, she makes plastic bags entirely hand knit by a women's community.
