Sidonie Boiron and Laura Guibert at work

On the occasion of Travel, Marie-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.

Sidonie Boiron and Laura Guibert, students at ESAA Duperré and apprentices of embroiderer Ollivier Henry, bring their embroidering and crocheting talents to the reinterpretation of a change purse from 1840 and an 18th century stomach piece.
