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.
Alongside with the Made in France Première Vision trade show, the exceptional rendez-vous of French haute façon held at Carreau du Temple in Paris, dive into the online magazine on salonmadeinfrance.com.
Folkdays is born from the travel discoveries of Lisa, Heidi and Kimon, three friends who fall in love with various local crafts while abroad. Wanting to support the local businesses they had found and sharing the techniques they had seen, they partnered with seven artisans to create a selection of bags, jewellery and accessories available under the brand Folkdays.
This video was produced by Made in Town as part of the travelling exhibition The Lace Review. At the initiative of the City of Calais, the Direction Générale des Entreprises and the Hauts-de-France Region, this exhibition showcases internationally one of the most beautiful jewels of the French fashion and luxury industry: the Leavers lace.
