• Sweet notebooks
• Manon does lovely clothes, as well as installations and costumes. She writes:
The origins of my work can be traced back to my last year of study at France’s Duperré School of Applied Arts when I carried out a photographic study of the clothes worn by workers in the early 20th century and explored the "traces of wear and tear" on clothes.ah! The clothes are beautiful, but I'm not in love with the fabric dolls. Although she's totally converted me to loving the dressed objects. Also, she was a research assistant for Elisabeth De Senneville!

It is meant to be a monument about change, longing and hope, the beauty of the un-done as a permanent state of change
