The atelier masters the ancient know-how but also modern tools to properly meet the clients’ most innovative demands.
Made in Strasbourg. Graduated in communication and management sciences at the Institut Français de la Mode, he develops a digital communication expertise about fashion, that is why he worked with houses such as Dior, Valentino or Nina Ricci. Passionate about menswear, he edits an online magazine Sodandy since 2009.
Maison Franco Litrico, the historical bespoke house in Rome, and the fashion designer Fabio Quaranta, winner of Who is On Next? Uomo collaborated together for an exhibition of high-class sartorial craftsmanship.
For the launch of Élégance de la Révolte – a timeless line of coats and waistcoats made upon request – Made in Town is turning into a cutting workshop for a few weeks. The workshop puts manufacturing at the forefront, as it unveils the tailor’s gestures, sharpens tools and highlights the know-how handling these tools to transform materials with brilliant craftsmanship.
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.
