MC X Icy Roads

Ten looks were created for the music video, shot as a short movie, of the punk rock band Icy Roads by La Mondaine.
The five actresses embody sexy but dangerous vigilanti, each with her own style, but also forming a unity within the gang: each “badgirl” is entangled in leather straps, shiny stripes, embroidered ribbons. All costumes were created to be worn over Chantal Thomass’ lingerie, also participating to this project.
For the five actors, the costumes needed to clearly establish their status, position and personality as there are no dialogues.

Wedding gown

Creation of a wedding gown influenced by the fantastic Spring 2007 Christian Dior Couture collection by John Galliano. The train is composed of 30 meters of silk organza, cut out in more than 300 meters of bias, all hand-rounded with an iron. The optical white tulle and silk duchess satin corset are followed by successive layers of white, off-white and beige flounces to create a dégradé effect. The volutes are maintained by a crinoline structure underneath, secured with grosgrain binding.

The gown needed over 400 hours of work.

MC X La Main du Mort

Three looks created for the short movie La Main du Mort, directed by La Mondaine. A sexy revealing dress for the “escort”, in Solstiss embroidered lace and black satin. A long cape coat for “Pierre” in heavy dark grey wool, imposing him as the main character, charismatic and powerful. A white shirt on a priestly garb for the “disciple”, tightened on the arms by black leather straps, evoking his constrained condition and submission to Pierre.

Directors: Paul Lavau & Thomas Burgess
Actors: Yan Tual, Yann Prig, Charlotte Eugene Guibbaud

MC X Cello

Creation of a concert dress for cello solo Marielle P. for a series of concerts at the prestigious théâtre du Châtelet, at the Philharmony in Paris and at the Ancient Theater in Vienna. It needed to respect many demands such as classy sexiness, comfortability and freedom of movement.
