Conversation with Carine Gilson
My heart is made of lace

For 30 years, Carine Gilson has excelled in lace. Since she sews, since childhood, the designer has chosen his side: the gesture, hand, Chantilly, silk, lingerie and haute couture.
In her Brussels studio, Carine Gilson works on the most noble materials in a chromatic range of her own. With passion and rigor, she orchestrates an exceptional know-how combining inlay and sense of cut.

For the first time, Carine Gilson reveals herself in a casual conversation with Anne-Françoise Moyson, journalist at Vif Weekend.

Recognised for its quality, the refinement of its patterns and the fineness of its threads, over the centuries, Brussels Lace has acquired an international reputation.
This highly skilled industry beguiled the grandest European courts: from Maria Theresa of Austria to Louis XIV and Princess Josephine Charlotte of Belgium.
