This event has already taken place.

Is lace a highly contemporary material? “Of course,” says Sylvie Marot, independent curator. Immerse yourself in the webinar and let yourself be carried away by the secrets of this demanding fabric called Calais-Caudry® lace.


What topics were discussed during the “Lace, a highly contemporary material” webinar?


Whether transparent or opaque, matte or shimmering, embroidered or coated, lace is the product of 200 years of knowledge, enhancing the most beautiful contemporary creations; the Calais-Caudry® lace adorns the most beautiful contemporary creations.


During the webinar, Sylvie Marot casts a light on her creative process. Who inspires whom? How do arts and crafts nourish each other? The curator returned to the ‘Haute dentelle’ exhibition created at La Cité de la dentelle et de la mode in Calais in 2018. This exhibition was on display until recently at the TextielMuseum in Tilburg.


Note: This Fashion Lesson No. 21 was due to take place in Brussels on 19 March 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the conference was cancelled and replaced by a webinar. It was held live on Thursday 16 April 2020.
