From Mass Retail to Haute Couture
Antonella Fustini at work
Antonella Fustini was born in Trente, Italia in 1967, and now she lives and works in Paris. She is a seamstress in the craft way.
She pays attention to fabric details that is why she then started to work for haute couture.
In 2012, during Made in Town, Vol.3, she shared her know-how by making made-to-measure shirt.
Made in Fontenay-aux-Roses. Both a freelance writer and a press agent, she writes about fashion and people behind it: designers, craftsmen and industrialists. She is a regular contributor on Maison d’Exceptions and Made in France Première Vision online magazines, among others. She is graduated from the Institut de Management et de Communication Interculturels, formerly Institut Supérieur d’Interprétation et de Traduction and from the Institut Français de la Mode.
More than a shop, Battistoni has always been a sort of high class café literaire, a meeting place of aristocratics, financiers, Italian and International celebrities: from the dukes of Windsor to Marlon Brando, from Moravia Warhol, Balthus to Cocteau. All of them aspired to boasting ownership of a Battistoni suit or shirt.
Made in Town presents Inventaire (inventer + faire), a selection of products reflecting the particular know-how of ateliers all around the world.
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.
