La boîte à couture et le bon Génie

<!-- @page { size: 21cm 29.7cm; margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } -- Il était une fois une élève de TMS... Comme elle n'avait pas de formation de couture en arrivant au lycée St Joseph, elle décida de faire son stage dans un atelier de retouche afin d'acquérir quelques techniques... La boutique qu'elle choisit faisait également des costumes dans le but de les louer. La plupart des costumes proposés tournaient autour de l'univers Walt Disney. C'est ainsi qu'un bon génie lui confia... [Lire la suite]

Aladin's lamp and the bottle of glue

Once upon a time, there was a young student of TMS (show-business technician). As she had no previous experience as a dressmaker, she decided to embark on her very first work experience in an alteration shop that happened to make costumes to rent. Her chosen workplace centered upon Walt Disney, and this young girl, looking to improve her sewing skills was sent to work on Jasmina from Aladin. She may have seen herself with only a needle and thread but instead found herself with a bottle of glue. Aladin's magic wishing lamp certainly... [Lire la suite]

A winning card at "Atout Pique"

Never would I have imagined making aeroplane seat covers! But during my work experience in industry at "Atout Pique", I took off as a beginner and landed with a lot more technical and manual ability in sewing than before.But not only did I taste the highlife in industry, I also embarked on another adventure in a small sewing workshop in La Rochelle. It enabled me to experience and improve new sewing techniques.After "Atout pique", it gave me one more ace up in my sleeve.

In the shadow of the show

Behind the romantic and beautiful tales of The Puy du Fou and the picturesque landscape and scenery, little hands are working hard behind the curtains to make this dream a reality. On stage, the actors can be in the spotlight whereas, backstage, the dressers and costume-makers stay in the shadow of the show. Only their work, indeed, sees the day!

Gold dust in the middle of nowhere

From animal skins to military costumes, with over 14.000 costumes and 6.000 props, theater has found its cornucopia!Whether it is for the theatrical enthousiasts or the simple curious, the choc-o-bloc rooms at Saint Paul du Bois are gold dust.During my work experience I got to sample all the services that the association provides. I assisted with the restoration, alteration and confection of several costumes.But what really surprised me is that the heart of this little village in the middle of nowhere is known as far away as Paris,...

The art of recycling

Forks, lightbulbs, slates, bottle caps: anything works at Cirkatomik! The philosophy is simple! Recuperation... This company based in Nantes has a fresh eclectic manner of creating costumes for fashion shows and theater productions. Raw materials are taken, recycled and transformed by the workers to make wonders, such as a hat made of roof-slates and bottle caps or a dress made of light bulbs. With Cirkatomic, recycling has become an art. An enlightening art!
