Ollivier Henry's worktable

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 this second rendez-vous, costumer and embroiderer Ollivier Henry brings his mastery of embroidery to the reinterpretation of a pre-embroidered men's vest, selected from the collection of the Palais Galliera.

Project accompanied by Lise Brisson

Fashion designer, costume maker, embroiderer, embroidery and costume history teacher at the Ecole Duperré, in Paris, where he was a student himself. Ollivier Henry has always been passionate about fashion and clothes. He quickly develops a particular appeal for the costume and its history.

He worked for the Opéra de Marseille, Opéra-théâtre de Metz and Opéra Comique. Then he took over his former teacher’s position and for 10 years he provides his expertise and knowledge in the best fashion schools. Meanwhile, he continues to manufacture costumes twice a year.
