Thomasine Barnekow, Fashion Designer, at the Maison d'Exceptions show

“I chose to manufacture gloves because they are somewhat of a forgotten accessory, although I wasn’t aware of it beforehand. To me they feel like a soft jewel. As your hands are in front of you all the time, you can always think about that object and imagine new shapes.
I realized that there weren’t many people specialized in glove-making, so it is a real opportunity to be able to master a rare craft, it makes my work even more special.
I have been running my business for nearly 10 years now, and I started to work in France 8 years ago. Over time, I have been collaborating with many craftsmen in Paris to find new materials and develop a more artistic and couture approach. That is the reason why I come here to Première Vision.”
