Masters at work: Feathers, flowers, couture sewing and pleating

Observe the master artisans of Lemarié showcasing their craftsmanship in an intimate studio space. Feathers, flowers, couture sewing, pleating: four exceptional savoir-faire mastered by Lemarié. In the heart of its Parisian ateliers, the feathers are dyed, then refined, cut, glued and curled. Camellias come in an infinite variety of colours, while smocking, ruching, quilting, inlays, ruffles, origami and other 3D motifs form unprecedented fabrics. Finally, precious cardboard moulds are used to create delicate pleats by the pleater Lognon, now under the tutelage of Lemarié.
