I am Léa Barale, a professional translator and writer

I love beautiful words and beautiful products.

At the age of 30 I am lucky to have already experienced two professional lives: as a translator, a life of journeys through books and throughout the world, and as a product manager for a luxury brand in Paris, a life of collection plans, patterns, prototypes and fashion shows.

In 2017, firmly committed to translating beauty into words, I set up Näste. I now offer the fashion, luxury and design industries my understanding of the language of creation and my in-depth knowledge of the specifics of the sector.

I graduated in Translation from the University of Aix-Marseille and in Fashion and Luxury Management from the Institut Français de la Mode (IFM) in Paris.
