Virginie Castaway was created by Virginie Neumann in 2006 in Paris. The brand has known quickly a strong success, opening 4 shops in Paris and one in Geneva, as well as developping their offer in the best multibrands in the world.
Who are you?
I have a bohemian soul, I love travel, well-being and esthetism. I love bursts of laughter, light, displays of affection, photo and all pictures in general... chase a dream, then anoter one...
How did you start in fashion?
My parents taught me the codes of what is beautiful, then I created my own way, my universe. The first Virginie Castaway designs were born in Sydney in 2005, then I started a capsule collection around beachwear.
How would you define your style?
A style between bohemian/refined - rock/sophistiqué. A style also full of 70's inspiration, a time free, modern and accessible.
What inspires you?
Everything that is beautiful, everything that catches my sight. I like photos, movies, my friends, travelling a lot! And also finding vintage clothing in old stores and brocantes.
What are you most proud of?
To be honest, that my style is the reflection of what I am, of the values I want to share.
Where do you manufacture your products?
70% of my collection is made in Europe. All the silk prints are done in Côme, Italy.
If your brand was a music, a movie, a cocktail...
It would be a cheerful music, an Italian song probably !
A romantic comedy
And of course, I would have a Cosmo please !
