On the initiative of the Institut National des Métiers d'Art, three "ambassadors" of French craft excellence have been selected to take part in the third edition of London Craft Week on Wednesday 3 May 2017. They are Serge Amoruso (leather goods designer, Master of Art), Michel Heurtault (parasol maker and restorer, Master of Art) and Samuel Gassmann (men's fashion accessories designer).
With two highlights:
- a presentation of their work at Saint James's market Pavilion (near Picadilly Circus) during the day
- a round-table discussion at the French Institute moderated by Simon Crompton, founder of permanentstyle.com, one of the most influential European blogs on men's fashion, at 7pm.
These two events are organised as part of London Craft Week, on the initiative of the Institut National des Métiers d'Art, in collaboration with the French Institute in the UK and Créative France.
