Marie Linker: Paris FW19
Beautiful clothes were always an important part of Marie Linker’s life. From a young age as a child growing up in middle class Romania, Marie Linker may not have always had food, but her dressmaker mother and aunt made sure she was clothed in handmade garments. This grew into a fascination for the fashion industry and several paper dress designs.
By age 21, Marie Linker opened her first boutique in Sydney Double Bay. Her success at such a young age drove Marie Linker to pursue a lifelong career in the fashion industry. Before eventually launching her own line, Marie Linker worked as a buyer serving as Australia’s exclusive distributor of many top labels like Dolce and Gabanna and Valentino. Her travels to Paris, Milan, London, and New York have inspired her work as a designer and led Marie Linker to develop a skill for choosing luxurious materials and embellishments.
“I don’t consider myself working; I just enjoy what I love. I love my creative side and sharing it on one to one with my clients. It is very inspirational and very satisfying to me.” says Marie Linker.
Special Occasion wear has become the basis of L’Elegante, specializing in Mother of the Bride & Groom, red carpet, and pageant gowns. It has become her goal to make everyone woman feel the glamour of Old Hollywood while wearing her designs.
Marie Linker is thrilled to share her designs and her passion with the globe at her runway show during Paris Fashion Week expanding her label L’Elegante from Australia to the rest of the world. This collection will serve as an introduction to the Marie Linker label of romance and femininity inspired by the love of making women of all ages and sizes look their very best.
