Dressing for Mode H

We were invited as trainee dressers to help out backstage of the Mode ‘H show. The show incorporates valid and handicapped dancers from all over Europe in representations of several romantic stories or musicals such as “ Romeo & Juliette”, “Dirty dancing”, “Singing in the Rain”, “Starmania”, “West Side Story”, “Le Roi Soleil”… We were divided into groups of two, each group allocated to a country.

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]

Toulouse, the rosey city that smells so sweet! During my work experience, I was placed in the men's workshop of the Capitole theater. The costumes are rich, glorious and golden. However, as a costume designer, it's always important to follow the guidelines of the decorator and even the dancers who rule the stage. I didn't get to experience the Capitole theater in its true glory as it was under renovation. But, even after my marvellous time, the stars are still in my eyes

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.
