For its third edition, Made in Town chose Paris to organize a one-month temporary atelier. Staging a collection of hand-made shirts for men and women crafted by Antonella Fustini, a passionate Italian shirtmaker based in Paris.
In 2010, Made in Town, Volume 1, sponsored by Fendi and AltaRoma in occasion of the launching of A Tailor-made Guidebook during Rome Spring/Summer Fashion Week, consisted of a 110 sq.m installation on Palazzo Fendi's facade dedicated to local craftsmanship.
2011 edition also took place in Rome, at Villa Medici this time, and along with the launching of The Women's Tailor-made Guidebook, proposed a round-table, hosted by journalist Maria Elena Capitanio, to discuss about the essence of contemporary tailor-made as seen through the eye of a new generation of young Italian fashion designers.
Taking place for the very first time in Paris, this year's event also included a selection of accessories manufactured by renowned parisian fabric flower maker Legeron, founded in 1880, in collaboration with Sophie Hallette, a lace manufacture based in Caudry since 1887. A short video documentary about Legeron's story and unique know-how completed the installation.
His dresses give the idea of 360 degree exclusivity. Light fabrics and embroidery, at which he is a maestro, applied to both evening and day dresses alike. Antonio Grimaldi, a young Roman couturier, pupil of the great Fernanda Gattinoni, listens to his clients and directs them towards the choice of dress that respects fully their personality.
Made in Town and Épure Editions invite you to the presentation of L’Excès, 10 façons de le préparer [The Excess, 10 Ways of Preparing It] by Emmanuel Giraud. A pamphlet rebutting our culture of ambient hygienism, the book defends and illustrates excess at the table: recipes based on immoderation, ostentatious wastefulness and provocations of all sorts.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of six video interviews of French and European designers, who have integrated the know-how of the glass factory into their creations. Each in their own way, they mastered glass.
