Those of you who follow me on Instagram already saw a sneak peek of the Hermès Festival des Métiers I attended to today but I wanted to share it with everyone. Hermès has organized a "Festival of Crafts" through Sunday in New York to let the public, free of charge, see how some of its most famous pieces are made. I watched a man make pieces for a Kelly bag, a woman hand sew silk ties, a saddle maker hammer a saddle together, and more. The pièce de résistance was the 45 minutes I spent watching a craftsman silkscreen an Hermès silk scarf with 14 different screens! I will definitely be posting my photos tomorrow but right now I have to go to bed to get my beauty sleep for the first day of fashion week.
A tout à l'heure.
