HANDS UP: The John Galliano atelier — which has realized countless bias-cut chiffon wonders and innovative tailoring — has been named an Enterprise du Patrimoine Vivant, or Living Heritage Company, by the French Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Employment. The honorary title — given to French firms with rare know-how — is in recognition of the 15 people who work in the atelier, each boasting more than a decade of experience in patternmaking, cutting and other techniques. Companies in a variety of sectors — including masonry, gastronomy and porcelain — have been awarded the label.
