Réalisation – a musical composition (design or work) that has been completed or enriched by someone other than the composer
Although there are specialized ateliers in Paris that function like the House of Execution, in New York couture is more rare. In my work there are usually only a few items made for a celebrity or as prototype. Items are created using techniques that aspire to the quality and finish of couture, requiring time and skill sets paired with a creative mind. This is not something taught in school.
I like the fast pace, meeting and working with many different designers, exploring new concepts, materials and techniques. Projects are brought to me for my willingness to experiment and collaborate, to tackle near impossible designs with zero hour deadlines and few measurements. Not knowing on Monday what I’ll be doing on Friday is a normal week.
