FandD is a Paris based creative studio founded by Flora Fixy & Julia Dessirier. Their mixed media methodology swings between products, accessories
and set design, whether designing for commissions and collaborations or
throughout self-initiated investigations.
To promote sustainability of craftsmanship
they work closely with artisans pushing forward existing processes
using their 3D modeling approach. FandD develop a singular langage on
the edge of hybrid shapes, between ultra precise curves computed by
algorithm and reality of material.
They won the Grand Prize of the jury Swarovski at Festival d’Hyères
in 2018 with a collection of jewelry for hearing aids, together with the
hearing impaired photographer Kate Fichard. They launch their fashion accessory brand FandD in 2019. The first
collection is developed in collaboration with the Metiers d’arts de
Chanel and will be showcased for the first time at Villa Noailles in
