About CHANTASMES

Sales 118
On Etsy since 2013

My father was a tailor for men and ladies. I grew up in fabrics. Dad said while wearing his needle pricked inside his jacket lapel. "With a needle and thread, you can make a living all over the world!"
After a master's degree in modern literature, I studied flat cutting and blurred sewing and finally I did sewing like dad. I worked as a costume designer in audio visual (cinema, advertising ..), and live performance (theater, opera ..), for 30 years.
I started as a little hand, dresser, costume designer, workshop manager, costume assistant, production manager and I also made creations.
Patina
I use noble and ancient materials that have lived experience, a natural patina or defects of time. To see the current fashion, we like the patina of time like faded jeans, torn or holed. A search for authenticity. My clothes are patinated by time or voluntarily; Osho talks about the task or scratch that makes the object appropriate.
Wrinkle of aging: transfer of life on the object. Wear and tear / usurer creates interest!
Matter
These are unique pieces, clothing and accessories made from:
1) Old materials, quality, noble materials made by large disappeared houses (jersey: Racine, gold and silver trimmings: Mathieu, ribbons: Tourny Mars, Rodolphe Simon)
2) houses more specialized in the show (Socolatex, Walder),
3) Upholstery fabrics, (The hare, Range.)
4) found at fleas (Sarah): curtains of lace, silk, old linen sheet, viscose and old velvet and wool plaid.
It's a bit like in "Gone with the Wind" where Scarlett has a dress made from the green velvet hangings of her house.
Recycling of old materials, but also modern cutting materials from different eras.
Sewing is like writing: It's a way of saying things, telling a story with material, shape and colors.
Refinement of detail is a golden rule.
The little nothing that does everything.
The unexpected that gives the note of humor.

Christian Lacroix quoting Goethe "the future will be made of elements of the past revisited."
