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.
With a passion for the vegetable world since the childhood she spent in the mountains and her grandparents’ garden, Mathilde Vial followed a training at Ecole des Fleuristes in Paris before discovering all the richness of this craft with traditional flower-makers.
Made in Town is home to the first collection of Moy, a line of t-shirts drawing on the skills of Chanteclair. Designed by Yasco Otomo – a Japanese fashion designer now living in Paris for more than a decade – the collection revisits the French tradition of knitwear.
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.
