A: Elle Trois-(Elle-Twah) stands for L3-Live, Love, and Learn in French. It was founded by myself, Francesca Pepe; partnered along with my sister Barbara Pepe. We wanted to put together a lime that reflected what a women goes through their everyday lives. We love, we get rejected, we fall, we rise, we live and also learn from our mistakes.
Q: 1.What inspired you to start designing?
A: My mother used to design & sew all types of dresses and bow ties when we were younger, however, as she got older, she gave up. I want to continue what she started, just a more fun and funky version.
Q: Do you plan on branching off, and design other things?
A: I have been making bows for about a year now. I have been mostly designing before that, but I really love when the bows are worn. I want them not only to reflect ones personality but also empowerment and confidence in every woman. In the near future, I do plan on branching off to do my official collection from everyday wear to business wear for women around the world.
Q: Besides yourself, who are some of your favorite designers?
A: Some of my favorite designers are Stella MCcartney , Victoria Beckham, Ralph Lauren, Herve Lerger and more. I admire any designer who knows how to keep it classy and creative, I like to stand out and not look like the rest.
Q: Where is your favorite place to shop?
A: I love to shop everywhere. If it's nice and unique, I'll buy it. I like Top Shop, Forever 21, Urban outfitters, boutiques and thrift stores.
Q: 10-20 years from now what do you want people to say about your designs?
