Born in 1985 in Périgueux, France, Monribot’s international upbringing spans over 4 continents. Monribot studied foundation arts at Rhode Island School of Design, and received her BFA in Fashion Design in 2009 from the École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, Paris, France.
After working for luxury fashion houses in Paris (Dior, Hermes, Ann Valerie Hash), London (Hardy Amies), and Antwerp (Ann Demeulemeester), Monribot moved to San Francisco in 2014 to grow her artistic practice.
Monribot’s education and experience in art and fashion result in a unique perspective, a quest to express, promote, and ennoble the human person. For Monribot, fashion, painting, darkroom photography, and ceramics — as well as dancing, acting and singing — all represent one theme; the undeniable need to express, to delight with emotion and strength, and a wish to inspire.
