Atelier Doré is… Vanessa!

Where are you from?
Beirut, Lebanon

Do you have a nickname?
Mostly Van, Vaness and most recently V (exclusively in the US!)

What’s your sign?
Aries. I hear that we’re the greatest. And clearly very humble.

Describe yourself in 3 words.
Rule-breaker on rare occasions?

Describe what you do at Atelier Doré in one sentence.
I’m the art director here at the studio. You can find me on set, working on layouts, designing stationery and products etc…

Ideal weekend includes…
A rainy day if I’m indoors. A good conversation. A boozy lunch among loved ones. An unexpected encounter. And of course, a movie (highly recommend Call Me by Your Name if you haven’t seen it yet!)

Favorite cocktail?
Espresso Martini. But I can only have one of those because they keep me up at night. Sake Martinis tend to follow.

Do you have a secret talent?
Apparently I can do a weird thing with my toes. Wouldn’t call it a talent though.

Craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Moving to NY without batting an eye? But who wouldn’t?

Describe your style in 3 words:
Definitely no rule-breaker

Favorite place you’ve ever been?
Namibia for its vastness. Cape Town for having everything I love in one place. Movie theaters for everything else.

Advice to your teenage self?
It probably won’t matter in a couple of weeks

One thing you can’t live without?
Mmmm… All I know is that we can’t live without each other. But also, nature and coffee
