Marie-Ange Guilleminot is a visual artist who has created a wardrobe based on the know-how of the exhibitors. Each garment and accessory is a tribute to an author of French literature. The result: forty or so totally unique pieces made in collaboration with fifty or so craftsmen and industrialists stimulated by this extraordinary project of exchange and sharing with several hands. A very beautiful collaboration with, among others, the LAVABRE CADET company based in Millau since 1946.
In France we still have real know-how. The Made in France exhibition at the Carreau du Temple brought together the trades of the French textile/clothing industry in order to promote all the production areas of the country. 59743 people are currently employed in the textile industry in France, which has a population of 66.3 million. The consumption of clothing in France in 2014 was 28 billion euros. The turnover of the textile industry is 12.9 billion euros.
