Françoise Bourrec aka Chattoune, was born in Paris, although endowed with a rich cultural background, being from various origins (Spain, Bresil, Italy...). Her early passion for wardrobe design has her attending, after Languages Study at the University, the Cours Berçot, internationally renowned for its education of fashion design. Still she will not limit herself to fashion - being strong tempered, naturally curious and eager for new experiences, she mingles various musical, cultural and ethnic influences in her everyday work - and will soon direct herself towards wardrobe design in show business, in its broad sense.  Very active in the advertisement world (L'Oréal, Cacharel, Nintendo,...), she will also design numerous costumes for music videos (Janet Jackson, Jane Birkin, Les Negresses Vertes, IAM,...), shows (Higelin ...), or short movies (le dernier chaperon rouge by Jan Kounen,...) all of which paved her way up to movies.

Her centers of interests and curiosity allow her to easily switch from contemporary drama (Les Rivières Pourpres II ) to comedy (Double Zéro, Fatal...) western (Blueberry, L'expérience Secrète) or even science-fiction (Dante 01, Babylon A.D...). Her work eventually led to a 2010 César nomination for "outstanding costume design" for Jan Kounen's Chanel & Stravinsky.
