Celeste Mogador

Born in Carhaix in the heart of Brittany, Pascale Nivet Bernetière lives and works in Rennes and began her life as an artist under the name of Mademoiselle Héloïse.
The brand Céleste Mogador was created in 2016. Pascale is the artistic director of all the creations: jewellery, accessories and decorative objects. She hand embroiders the unique pieces.
So who is Céleste Mogador really?
Céleste Mogador is the pseudonym of Élisabeth-Céleste Vénard, a famous French Cancan dancer of the 19th century. She helped launch the career of La Goulue, another famous character of the time. It was this quirky and spectacular character and the sound of the name Céleste Mogador that seduced the designer Pascale Nivet Bernetiere.
Pascale Nivet Bernetiere's work is far removed from a cold and minimalist style. Colours, materials, patterns ... the creative universe is rich in dreamy and greedy symbols, each more vibrant than the next.
Pascale likes to mix styles, often inspired by colourful pieces: the clothing patterns of the Sami and Inca peoples, Chinese masks... all childhood memories, nourished by traditional arts festivals, shows and books.
Later on, she dreams of being a rock singer, a crazy aristo, a Loulou de la Falaise. Pascale's universe is definitely rock, nourished by the pop rock music of the Anglo-Saxon bands the Sex Pistols, Joy Division, The Verve, The Cure ... and also by British fashion designers like Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.
Céleste Mogador today is a brand of jewellery, accessories and decorative objects.
