Nelly Rodi, at the Maison d'Exceptions show

“I am Nelly Rodi, founder of the eponymous agency and vice president of the Paris Ile-de-France Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry responsible for fashion, creation and design. What seems to me like a major challenge today is the merging of craftsmanship, technology and industry.
All this creativity in the minds and hearts of the designers, which translates into beautiful products manufactured by highly-skilled craftsmen, we definitely have to preserve it.
We must also not forget that we live in an increasingly digital and technological world, using 3D printers for example. Combining both aspects is to me the key to preparing the future of the textile industry.”
