Micol Fontana, one of the three sisters who founded the Sorelle Fontana couture house in Rome in 1943, passed away on 12th June 2015 at the age of 101. In a foreword to the Roman edition of the Women's Tailor-made Guidebook published in 2011, Micol Fontana kindly shared her point of view on the evolution of the fashion system through the story of her own commitments.
Made in Town interrupts the daily grind, taking a voyage south to the Midi-Pyrenees region of France, in pursuit of local savoir-faire and products, desiring (as always) to strengthen the bond between the public and producers. The exhibition Made in Town / Montagne Noire parks its suitcases first at the Castres Economic Fair.
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 four short videos shot in the heart of the company's workshops.
