Geneviève Levivier, A+Z Design, at the Maison d'Exceptions show

(English subtitles available)

“My name is Geneviève Levivier. I am a textile designer and manager of the company A+Z Design. We are an integrated R+D studio and design/production atelier. Our activity focuses on the internal development of polymers.

This time we have developed a series of various appliqués. The polymer material is extremely fine and supple. It gives an extremely soft handfeel. It allows for custom marble and speckled effects. We can see that very well in this example. We work on a textile base, from the most refined to the most coarse. Here we can see marble and metallic effects. All of our motifs are created to measure with these types of new developments that give light, supple articulation.

For the record, perhaps an amusing activity, the idea came to us to work with natural flowers that we had preserved in our polymers. Obviously, this is an haute couture application. We developed an application, equally high-end but more wearable, being developed in capsule ready-to-wear and in couture. Here we can see the initial ideas and their results offering a large range of possibilities.”
