Christine Visneau

VP of Retail, Art + Curation, Makeready

Christine Visneau, VP of Retail, Art + Curation of Makeready, is a celebrated
designer and purveyor of hand-selected retail with an innovative eye for
fashion, art direction, curation, and design.
While studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, Visneau
worked one of her first jobs as a shop girl for Max + Roebling in
Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She eventually purchased the boutique, where she
was focused on curating products from independent and local NYC
designers. In 2001 she began working as a home and accessories buyer for
teen fashion company, Alloy, where she oversaw private label and product
design for exclusive catalog collections.
In 2004, Christine made the move to Texas where she launched her own –
wildly successful - children’s clothing collection. After the success of her
clothing line, she opened, Little Bean, a brick-and-mortar children’s
boutique where she showcased her own designs, as well as curated finds
from around the globe. After selling Little Bean in 2011, Christine spent time
as a stylist at Dallas-based, Neiman Marcus, where she perfected her styling
techniques, and developed her innovative eye for creative art direction.
After two years with Neiman Marcus, Christine opened VeeCaravan in 2014.
The online shop was carefully curated with pieces reflecting her own
effortlessly cool style of easy- yet-sophisticated pieces. She sourced her
products from vintage retailers and independent makers from around the
world. In addition to running her online store, she channeled her
experience as a clothing designer, stylist, and previous editor of Small
Magazine (a publication inspired by her two children), into seasonal pop-up
shops. During these pop-ups, customers shopped in person while enjoying
eats and drinks from local artisans, music and more.
In 2015, Christine joined Makeready, where she currently serves as the
company’s VP of Retail, Art + Curation, and so much more. Through
curating retail concepts and designing apparel for boutique hotels,
restaurants, and retail, Visneau is able to create unique, one-of-a-kind
experiences for guests and discerning travelers alike. Not just from a
“creative/cool factor” standpoint, but from a functional and realistic one as
Christine resides in Dallas with her husband, Steven Visneau [a highly
credited photographer], and their two children
