At 32, Parisienne Gabrielle Caunesil has already made a name for herself — not only as a French model, influencer, and founder of sustainable fashion brand La Semaine Paris, but as someone who doesn’t shy away from discussing life’s unfiltered moments.
"Over the past year, before I got diagnosed, I experienced pain every single day. I was supposed to have surgery but then I became pregnant a few months after that. It’s been over a year since I gave birth and unfortunately the pain is coming back, so I will have to go through another check-up to see what’s going on with the situation."
"Usually a woman gets diagnosed after seven years of sickness, and still today we don’t have a cure for it. That was the reason that pushed me to open up about a situation that was really painful, while I was living it, to raise awareness and hopefully help other women to feel less alone."
"When I found out I was pregnant, I couldn’t believe it. It has been the biggest, brightest joy since then. My whole perspective and priorities shifted. It made me stronger, certainly more organized, and somehow more serene, with a lot less sleep!"
"I have been dreaming of launching La Semaine Paris for years ... To be able to express my creativity, build our own rules, and grow a community of international women has been our drive since the beginning."
