Unique clothing custom made from luxury dead stocks


Huguette manufactures unique pieces inspired by the 60s and the 70s from vintage fabrics. Everything is made in the Toulouse region, in the South West of France, by small family studios or in workshops for social integration.


In the sixties, Huguette, the grand mother, worked as a seamstress for luxury maisons. The name of the brand pays homage to her. Huguette's daugther and her own daughter launched the studio by reinterpreting vintage patterns into timeless pieces. Singular printed fabrics and choice of materials offer a new way to buy a cloth, which is mad by order, like before, when we used to go to the seamstress.


Materials are sourced everywhere where it is possible to find some. Mother and daughter began by using Huguette's own fabrics. Then they bought dead stocks from luxury brands such as Givenchy, Vuitton, Céline, Balenciaga, Hugo Boss, Versace or Valentino. Then they looked for store presentation stamples or got back curtains from palaces. They also bought vintage sheets and curtains from flee markets.


Their own fabric intercuts are given to nursery schools for creative leasure or to the "Les chapeaux de Martine" association, which makes patchwork hats for people with cancer.
