Hermès, Christian Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga, Balmain, Yves Saint Laurent... All these well-known names have always been represented in Lognon's atelier. Lognon has served all the most famous French haute couture designers since the beginning of the 19th century, from the time of Napoleon III. Any fashion designer who needed a special pleat for a fabric knew exactly where to ask for it - from the Lognon fashion house.

The atelier still uses the same captivating pleating technique today, satisfying the imagination of even the most flighty fashion designers. In the film "Handmade with love in France", Lognon's atelier and other unique French artisans take the viewer into their world. Despite decades of working for prestigious fashion designers and contributing to the essence of haute couture, one after another they have been forced to close their doors because they can't find anyone to continue their work. What happens to the art of fashion when one day there is no one left?

Fashion designer Piret Ilves will make an introduction to the film screenings.
