just a few weeks ago
I got to visit the atelier
of the Austrian theatre wardrobe supervisor
ART FOR ART.
Art for Art even has its own fabric departement.
Here the costume designer chooses first.
If there is not a wide range to choose from
because of course you need a special material or colour
the fabric buyer contacts larger scale distrubutions.
When you make an appointment with Art for Art (Goethestrasse 1, A- 1010 Wien)
you may get to buy a fabric for your private production.
The costume production also has their own hatter.
I saw a great collection of headdresses from former plays or operas.
Art for Art also has der own shoe departement.
Sadly it shrunk to a 50 m² factory.
The manufactory also constists of a storage for every sort of footform.
There is a production only for underear which is very important for the vienniese ballet.
I got a sneak peak at the sewing factory.
A little impression from the hallway.
Here a costume that took part in the Opera of Vienna.
In the atelier.
I hope you enjoyed your little tour through ARTFORART.
Have a lovely weekend.
