Guided tour of the current temporary exhibition

Insect decline – It’s going to be all right

I give tours at the Natural History Museum of Berne. Experience an exhibition on a deeper level, discover behind-the-scenes stories and episodes that an ordinary visit can't offer.
If you want to book the tour with me, book the guided tour and mentions "Guide: BugLady Frances" in the message section.

Lui Luis x BugLady

This collaboration feels like a match made in heaven. I met Lisa from Couture Lui Luis many years ago at a concert. Soon after, I found out that she was a tailor and so I asked her if she would be interested in collaborating - me doing the fabric design work, her designing and sewing a collection. In 2019 we launched our first Lui Luis Loves Bugs Collection - it was an eyeopener for me. I had no idea working with someone could be so much fun.

Couture Lui Luis x BugLady Philosophy
As Lui Luis x BugLady, we embrace the principles of slow fashion, where each piece is crafted with intention and care. We design and create garments that are made to order, ensuring a perfect fit and minimal waste. Inspired by the delicate dance of insects and the silent whispers of plants, our designs are a call to revolutionize fashion—a call to protect our fragile earth. We are committed to sustainability, inclusivity and authenticity.

With a Lui Luis x BugLady piece, you are not just wearing clothing; you are wearing a statement. A piece of art that tells a story of resilience, beauty, and interconnectedness. You are supporting a movement that values the well-being of our planet and all its inhabitants.

Miss Poppy's Meets BugLady

I met miss poppy's through another collaboration: Frauen* stärken Frauen*.

miss poppy's is a small, personal soap factory in the city of Bern. She produces handmade care products for everyday use. Her focus is on the love of beauty and design without sacrificing functionality. Her goal is to make mundane and trivial things like washing your hands or taking a shower an experience.

Our project is still a little secret, but let's just say there will be moon phases, herbs, salts and oils involved.

Creative Collective

LES ATELIERS is where a lot of the magic happens. It's the shared space of Couture Lui Luis and myself. It's also our shared web store and a network of people from Bern who create.
