Valentine Avoh, an Ivorian born in Belgium is a young Brussels stylist specialized in wedding dresses. For as long as she can remember, Valentine has always loved creating things and sewing was definitely one of my passions from a young age.
Passionate about fashion and sewing since she was little, it was at the age of 20 that Valentine Avoh decided to fly to London to make her dream come true. Graduated in styling and model making from the London College of Fashion, Valentine then worked for more than 10 years in prestigious international houses, such as Alexander McQueen, Alexis Mabille, San Andrès Milano and Marc Philippe Coudeyre where she started as a small hand to end up as a workshop manager.
Following the realization of her first wedding dress for a friend in 2009, Valentine literally fell in love with this still artisanal process which brought together her love for fashion, technique and human encounters. Five years later, Valentine Avoh launched her own brand and then, in 2017, opened her Brussels workshop where she created each piece in the style of the great couturiers.
From the 1st sketch to the finalized dress via the pattern, Valentine Avoh makes each model by hand in her Brussels workshop. The ideal equation to give the wearer that feeling of intimate luxury and understated elegance that only craftsmanship can provide.

In her constant quest for quality, Valentine Avoh has chosen to supply herself exclusively in Europe; in Italy, in France and of course in Belgium, with the same suppliers as those of the Haute Couture houses. She also develop certain embroideries in partnership with my suppliers to be able to offer truly unique pieces that are characteristic of the house’s DNA.
