I am first and foremost an entrepreneur. Any discipline requires a solid business plan and I believe that whether you are an artist or a finance wizard, you must first and foremost draft a solid roadmap.

That said, I have decided to prioritize everything creative in my career. I am a musician, I am a model, I love anything that is beautiful and I do have a very special taste which I like to translate in different mediums. 

Since I know we are always stronger together, I have always surrounded myself with incredible talents which has helped me reach a broader audience, as well as creating projects that feel out of the box. Audacity is key for a successful career, in my opinion. 

AAK: Lume France is your new project and first skin care line ever. How did you come up with the idea?

Since I am a public person, I have to take the utmost care of my skin. With many photoshoots, red carpets and public appearances, I am expected to be flawless at any hour of the day. This truly takes some dedication and requires knowledge!

Over the years, I have gathered expertise in the chemical and biological spheres to understand better what is best for a good cellular longevity. 

Lume France is a testament of my dedication to and entrepreneurial spirit to cater the best of what I know in the beauty industry to my audience, while providing an unique product.

My love of skincare started at the age of 16, where I discovered fascination for the transformative power of skincare routines. This early interest was not merely a passing fancy. Instead, it ignited a lifelong passion that would become the cornerstone of my entrepreneurial pursuits.

Two years later, I was inspired to become an ambitious entrepreneur and had keen interest in entrepreneurship which I started to develop. Needless to say this experience fueled my passion to launch Lume France! 

AAK: What do you think is the magic recipe for a successful venture ?

First and foremost, I believe that the most important thing is to make the best strategic decisions and always be avant-garde. Having a visionary line is crucial to me. If you create something innovative and offer a futuristic view of the industry, whether it is through a project or a product, then you will stand out. This is how I define my career: always be ahead! 

With my academic background, I have now been able to use these educational tools to train young entrepreneurs and share my knowledge to new generations. My business degree really helped me create sustainable streams of business.

Additionally, I think anticipation and budgeting are the most important elements to prepare well for a venture. It makes it even more exciting for me, because I can mentor young individuals in their framework. 

AAK: Can you tell us more about Lume France? How did you come with the idea? 

Lume France is going to be a game change in the skincare industry in 2024! It will be available starting January 2024. It represents the culmination of my journey, blending my passion for beauty with my entrepreneurial drive.

These creative outlets serve as wellsprings of inspiration, influencing the aesthetic appeal of Lume France.
