Peggy Housset / Costumes

Peggy Housset’s costume creation occurs at the conjuncture of two great passions: dance and design. After studies at l’Institut d’Arts Visuels d’Orléans, ESDI in Barcelona, the Arts Décoratifs de Paris and a Master’s degree at the London College of Fashion, she joined the Alberta Ferretti design office as a stylist. Interested in new textile technologies, she has developed experimental and innovative projects in partnership with Futuro Textile and the Shanghai World Expo.

In parallel with her work in fashion, including the 2009 launch of her own line Peggy H. and the artistic direction of fashion shows Le Printemps Lille, Salon du Chocolat Lille Grand Palais (…), she has collaborated with Philippe Decouflé’s company DCA for more than 10 years on costume design for dance and theater: Nouvelles pièces courtes, Iris, Panorama, Sombrero, Désirs at Crazy Horse , Octopus, Panorama, but also for 5 Ryoanji by Olivia Granville, Promesse by Guy Freixe and more recently The Han Show by Franco Dragone along with Tim Yip, and La Perle in Dubai.
