Lauréate du prix des Métiers d’art 2019
As Grand Partner of the 35th International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories in Hyères, CHANEL is supporting the future of fashion design. This year, Le 19M, CHANEL’s new site in Paris that will regroup eleven Métiers d’art in 2021, has also become a Grand Partner of the event. For the occasion, CHANEL and Le 19M have invited Irish designer Róisín Pierce to exhibit an ensemble of her creations made in collaboration with CHANEL’s Métiers d’art, in the gymnasium at the villa Noailles.
A graduate of the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Róisín Pierce sculpts materials by hand with accumulative and stratification effects, while focusing on “zero waste” and revising ancestral techniques with an astonishing modernity. Winner of the Métiers d’art Prize at
the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories in Hyères in 2019, she was rewarded for her white headpieces made from broderie anglaise and ruching, in collaboration with Maison Michel.
The 2019 Métiers d’art Prize gave her the opportunity to collaborate with the Ateliers de Verneuil-en-Halatte to make a pod-shaped bag embroidered with lace, embellished with bows and tassels and that opens like the petals of a flower. Róisín Pierce also worked with Maison Michel to create a hat from broderie anglaise and little bows. Finally, the designer collaborated with Paloma, the flou expert, on the creation of a dress covered entirely with ruching of white flowers.
These highly original creations, made in collaboration with CHANEL’s Métiers d’art will be exhibited alongside other installations and events for the duration of the festival.
