Theatrical release 27 september 2017 (France)
German Premiere 19 January 2018
Following the Premiere in France at Fashion Week in Paris, L'architecte textile celebrates the German Premiere during Fashion Week in Berlin at the Babylon.
An in-depth documentary on the architecture of bespoke tailoring.
Over the course of hundreds of hours the mistress tailor filmed herself while making a three-piece suit.
This film is an open window into this sartorial craft.
"A avant-garde documentary that was fallen right in the middle of the Fashion Week, while the press attaches are boosting their crazy fashion designer on social networks and while the fashion bloggers and the hippest people in the world Planet rush at the foot of the catwalk. L'architecte textile a perfect counterpoint, the precise work of a watchmaker in the space of the textile architect, who with his skillful hands structures and builds the garment that will sublimate the body by drawing clean lines, and, for the beauty of the gesture, sneak by the tip of the needle the pleats flying away at the slightest movement ...
A masterpiece of precision micro mechanics ... the Art of the Grand Couture".
written by Famous Rallye (Elizabeth Kaufmann)
About the film
The original idea was to realize a school film for fashion students so that traditional couture survives and we do not forget the technique of sartorial art, which is disappearing. The first provisional version of the film is 10 hours long. Finally, a 100-minute cinema film has been created to give "non-professionals" the opportunity to experience this exclusive and increasingly rare profession. The film has a very avant-garde structure because of the type of camera work, the sound design and the editing of the film, so the film genre is difficult to reclassify. A mix of documentary, experimental film, feature film, cultural film and educational film.
A longer version of at least six hours "Art Sartorial Praxis" is currently in post-production, which will be presented in museums and galleries in 2020.
