The first stage of touring exhibition The Lace Review, that brings together the 14 last manufactures of Leavers lace still operating in Calais and Caudry, is held from March 22nd to May 1st 2018 at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) of Shanghai.
The Lace Review exposes to the Chinese public the technical specificities that make the richness and uniqueness of this essential material in the fields of fashion and lingerie. A true cultural exception, the technique of weaving Leavers lace - which combines elegance, engineering and creativity - has marked the territory’s economic activity and imagination since its invention more than 200 years ago.
This first stage is co-produced by Bang Communications and takes place in the heart of Shanghai at MoCA, the first private museum in China dedicated to the promotion of Chinese or international contemporary art and design. It hosts exhibitions about the great names of Western fashion, design and luxury such as Dior, Chanel, Ferragamo or Marimekko.
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.
As the holidays approach, Made in Town presents an ephemeral selection of furniture, objects, accessories and clothing. For this winter inventory, Made in Town gathers the work of twenty ateliers of different disciplines proposing a variety of products, each born from local fabrication.
In order to promote the know-how and characteristics of the tapestry from Aubusson, the county town of the French region of Creuse, Made in Town conducted a series of three documentary videos at the request of the International City of the Tapestry and Woven art, in partnership with l’Institut français de la mode and with the support of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
