25-05-2014 : A designer at work : Sofi Milli, Milliner (France)

Her workshop looks like a maid room under the roof of a large house of the early 20th. Small step back in time... Sofi Milli is a milliner. During my visit, she was ironing a straw hat whit what my grandmother could call a "leg-wet" and decorating her creations with ribbons, charms, cameos and other fantasies, a dice on her finger. Some childhood memories were back in my head…

Sofi, on behalve on the "Maison des créateurs", an association of artists and designers who organizes exhibitions of local artists and designers in Nancy, contacted me about their exhibition planned in June 21-22d. She wanted something special, a kind of tribute to the designers who will participate to the event. I decided to explore their specific and personal universes with my camera. So began the project "Designer at work".
