Meeting with Marie Cabirou, founder of the jewelry brand, Marie Mas, created in 2017. Discover how the entrepreneur, starting from an innovative concept, linked to movement, creates a new relationship with jewelry.
Marie Cabirou began her studies in fashion and accessory design at the IFM and at Ecole Duperré. After some experience with young brands in accessories and jewelry, she landed an internship at Dior in the jewelry studio, where she designed jewelry for fashion shows and collections.
After her internship, she launched her career in the same firm, where she realizes the importance of each and every step as well as each department’s implication in the process of creation and marketing.
Driven by the desire to undertake and create her own brand, she left Dior after 3 years to launch Marie Mas in January 2017.
WHAT WAS YOUR MOTIVATION TO LAUNCH YOUR OWN VENTURE?
It was a desire I‘d had for a long time. I told myself that it was better to try my luck when I’m young and full of energy (Laughter.) You never know how things will turn out and I'm not sure that you can ever really feel ready. It's all about taking the plunge. I told myself that what I didn't know, I'd find out as I go along.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ENTREPRENEURS WHO WANT TO START A BUSINESS?
If you want to do it, go for it. That way, if it works, it's great, and if it doesn't work, at least you'll have really tried and there will be no regrets. Either way, it's a really rich experience that allows you to meet fantastic people!
