Claudine Lachaud founded Atelier Caraco in 1988. It is based in the heart of Paris and manufactures made-to-measure clothes for performing art, ready to wear and haute couture fields.
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.
The e.g.m. collective takes its name from the initials of its founders: Elsa, Grichka and Martin, three graphic designers trained at the Arts Décoratifs of Paris. In the context of the Auto-productions cycle at Made in Town, they focus on experimentation with their drawing machine as the spearhead of their approach. In association with Label XVI, which creates unique objects by way of serial production, e.g.m. will produce in situ, through the aid of permanent markers, a series of drawings upon silk and cotton scarves.
In the build-up to the Paris Fashion Week, Made in Town presents Monteneri, an Italian platform dedicated to know-how in the fields of fashion and design and whose business strategy has been developed by Made in Town since its launch in 2015.
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.
