Made in Paris, 2009. A spot in Paris, a digital platform and an online magazine dedicated to know-how in the domains of fashion, textile and design. A program including workshops, screenings, meetings, and a selection of artisanal and industrial products.
Created in 2001 from the merging of several Paris area institutions, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture of Paris-Val de Seine is a public institution for architecture studies.
For the launch of Élégance de la Révolte – a timeless line of coats and waistcoats made upon request – Made in Town is turning into a cutting workshop for a few weeks. The workshop puts manufacturing at the forefront, as it unveils the tailor’s gestures, sharpens tools and highlights the know-how handling these tools to transform materials with brilliant craftsmanship.
In order to promote the know-how and characteristics of the tapestry from Aubusson, the county town of the French region of Creuse, Made in Town conducted a series of three documentary videos at the request of the International City of the Tapestry and Woven art, in partnership with l’Institut français de la mode and with the support of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
