Behind the Seams: Anne-Marie Rostaing - Head of Workshop, Le Grand Costumier

 

Anne-Marie has been head of the workshop at Le Grand Costumier since April 2018. Having worked in the field of tourism for more than ten years, she made a 180-degree turn to take a course in tailoring at École des métiers des Faubourgs and to devote herself completely to this passion that has followed her since childhood. In 2015, once her training completed, she obtained sporadic contracts in the theatre industry and did alterations as well as tailor-made in between costume contracts to supplement her income.

 

 

She arrived at Le Grand Costumier as a punctual seamstress for the restoration of the collection. While facing the challenge of finding a stable job in tailoring, she planned on returning to working in administration, when an opportunity at Le Grand Costumier presented itself. Her great expertise and her passion have rapidly lead her to go from having a seamstress position to being head of the workshop and since, she is a brilliant resource for the organisation. Today, Anne-Marie coordinates all of the workshop’s projects; from alterations for custom-made tailoring to the restoration of the collection’s costumes.
