Fondazione Lisio Point de détails

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 reinterpretation of the 18th century pre-embroidered men's vest, selected by Marie-Ange Guilleminot from the collection of the Palais Galliera, the Fondazione Lisio offers silk taffetas specially handwoven for the occasion. The fabric, with a width of 56 cm, serves as the base for the embroidery of Ollivier Henry.
