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.
