Biography

Virginie Corm is a celebrated designer who has created jewelry for luxury department stores and boutiques worldwide. Having had a mysterious fascination with stones and beads from a very early age, she would take apart her mother's precious jewelry only to reassemble it creating her own original unique pieces. She later decided to pursue this artistic passion by attending the selective "Deutsche Meister Schule Für Mode" in Munich, Germany. After studying Fashion and graphic design in Germany, she moved to Paris to pursue her studies at the École Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisienne" under the direction of the renowned Fashion Designer Pierre Balmain. Upon graduation she trained and worked in small scale models for architecture with different companies throughout Europe, including Sir Leslie Martin, Dean of the Architecture School at the University of Cambridge. It was this new found interest in architecture that brought Corm when living later in New York, to work on the landmark reopening of the Cooper Hewitt Museum and then decided to launch her own jewelry design line ”Virginie Corm Designs”. Since December 2004, she held solo and group exhibitions at Galerie Janine Rubeiz such as: “Liban; Terre, Ciel et Mer” (2005), “Virginie Corm” (2008), “C’etait demain” (2011),“Good Luck” (2012) and “Fashionless fashion” (2013).
