Born and raised in Haiti, from Lebanese, French, and Italian ancestry, Anick Vorbe embodies the true spirit of an artist. From a very young age, she was exposed to the world of distinguished aesthetics, femininity, grace and sophistication. She grew up surrounded by tasteful interiors always filled with fresh flowers and elegant women, most particularly her mother and her grandmother. She was influenced by their dressmakers while tirelessly joining whenever they had fittings. She remembers her attraction for fabrics particularly silk chiffons, colors, accessories and the art of putting it all together.
After finishing High School in her beloved Haiti, she set out for her studies in Boston. After earning her degree, she continued to feel the need to pursue and explore her artistic talent. It was clear from the very beginning that her calling was in the art world.
She was always drawn by the arts and attracted by interiors and fashion. She enrolled herself at the Miami International University of Art and Design where she studied Fashion Design. She immediately created her first line of Resort Wear named after herself. The collection consisted of "one of a kind" silk chiffon caftans inspired by the mysticism of the Middle East and her admiration for the Marrakech “époque" of Yves Saint Laurent.
Anick strongly believed in the shared esthetics of interiors and fashion and this led her to also explore the world of interiors. Anick made her mark by transforming interiors and dressing homes with colors, textures, bold accessories, mixing vintage and contemporary pieces. The vision always being to create a playful and elegant atmosphere.
By 2017, a significant year in her life, Anick wanted to take her appreciation and love for fashion into the world of millinery. After all, she was an avid collector of hair accessories from a very young age and felt she could make a unique contribution to this growing segment of the fashion world.
Her first millinery collection “Koussou”, was inspired by her childhood memories in Haiti and her love for flowers. Her one of a kind handmade floral headpieces are works of art and are carefully curated bouquets of peonies, orchids, hydrangeas, roses, ranunculus, dahlias and so much more over beds of natural burlap and grosgrain ribbons. The “Mikeyla”, the “Eva”, the Sienna”, “the “Francoise”, the “Anacaona”, to name a few, all have a story to tell. My “Little sculptures” she calls them…
Anick Vorbe resides in Miami. In this vibrant multicultural city, she continues to be inspired and is happily juggling between flowers, caftans and interiors.
