On the occasion of TravelMarie-Ange Guilleminot and Made in Town organize a series of encounters with guardians of gestures and techniques: costumers, tailors, embroiderers, corsetry-makers, graphic designers.

These meetings will cast a light on the elaboration of the project Touchez-Voir [Touch & See], a wardrobe realized from reproductions of clothes and accessories originating in the archives of Palais Galliera, the Museum of Fashion of the City of Paris.

For the first of these rendez-vous, the costumer Carmen Mateos contributes her savoir-faire in order to create a pattern modeled after a shoulder pad by Maison Martin Margiela (Inv. 1991-215-11) from the reserves of Palais Galliera.
