Born in Carhaix in the heart of Brittany, Pascale Nivet Bernetière lives and works in Rennes embroidering her unique accessories by hand. Along with her husband and business partner Fabrice, she travels through dedicated salons to meet her enthusiasts and spread the magic of her creations worldwide.

But who really is Celestial Mogador? Celeste Mogador is the pseudonym of Élisabeth-Céleste Vénard, famous French Cancan dancer of the 19th century. She was born in Paris on December 27, 1824. Initially young cook, she began her career as a dancer at Cirque-Olympique, Parisian theater. She meets with success as a dancer-host at Bal Mabille, one of the most prestigious establishments in Paris at that time. She participated in launching the career of La Goulue, another famous character of the time. It is this offbeat and spectacular character and the sound of the name Celeste Mogador that seduces and inspires the creator Pascale Nivet Bernetiere.
