Festival De Metiers was an interesting event held by Hermes at the Paragon Atrium. I was one of the lucky ones who got invited to the opening of the event on 01 Sep. “Artisan” from France were being flown in to Singapore to showcase their craftsmenship, on how a piece of Hermes product is being created from scratch to an end product. The sections were divided into leather work, scarf printing, porcelain painting, watch making, tie making and also Gem setting. As you watched how the artisans painstaking create each and every item with such details and precision, you know why we have to pay so much for this super highend luxury brand.
The whole atrium has been converted into a Hermes workshop. There are different stations showing how various products are being created.
The fare will be opened to public starting from 3 Sep 2011. It was really an eye-opening experience for me. Catch them in action if you are in Orchard this coming weekend. Enjoy!
