More than a brand, Misericordia is primarily a project to conduct local and social work in Peru.
It was after a trip to Peru in 2003, Aurelyen decided to start this adventure that today employs people from different backgrounds from the region of Lima.
Born in Seine-Saint-Denis, from an early age his world leads to an interest in art. A real way of communication for him, Aurelyen enters the Fine Arts College where he perfected his artistic sense before traveling around the world. His various travels leads him to Peru, where he created his brand and lives now.
Today, Misericordia is for him a platform to impose new values related to the act of modern consumption and give rise to the term consum-actors.
In the slums of Lima, Peru's capital, Aurelyen encounter a small team of seamstresses with whom he makes a bet: to built a local project that combines artistic creation and social commitment. The first collection Misericordia will be presented in 2003 at the Salon Tranoï, where she will have great success before being distributed in stores like Colette - Paris and open his own shop at 9 rue de Charonne 75011 Paris.
