brand agnès b.; In 1984, she opened an art gallery la galerie du jour agnès
b. next door to the boutique.Forever involved with art and artists, she tackled film and established "Love Streams", her film company. She also publishes a free periodicaleach one entirely dedicated to one artist, "Point d’Ironie".Having always wished to express herself in ways other than just design, along time ago she wrote a story, My Name is Hmmm… in a couple of days and was finally able to shoot the film in 2012/2013.
