Forget the pasta necklace and the traditional bouquet of flowers (even if they are, obviously, among the most treasured gifts for Mum in the world). The next Marché des Modes will take place during Mother’s Day weekend in two landmark places in the city of Roubaix : La Salle Watremez and Le Vestiaire Maisons de Mode.
This supercharged weekend will unfold under the sign of “Party!”
At la Salle Watremez : tens of stands of designers, a huge plant Pop Up shop, yummy nibbles and “home-made” cakes, a mother/daughter photo call and DJ sets to get you grooving!
From the entrance at this former industrial building to the old school greenhouse atmosphere, the mood of “plant Pop Up shop” for indoor vegetation (seen often on Instagram but almost never in person) will be executed by Brume.
Following the theme set by the verdant décor by Bobotóv, Margaux at Home will be serving up delicious nibbles and ‘home-made’ cakes all under an arbour in a relaxed restaurant space.
A photo call will be set up for family selfies to immortalise this day out, with the ambiance and festive flavour added to the event by DJ Afrojaws.
At Le Vestiaire and Maisons de Mode boutiques : yoga, Sunday brunch, organic nibbles and DIY workshops…
Maisons de Mode designers will welcome attendees throughout the weekend to their boutique-ateliers located in Le Vestiaire and on Avenue Jean Lebas near the La Piscine Museum.
At Le Vestiaire, the bar/restaurant Food – La Cantine will offer its traditional Sunday Brunch as well as its “home-made” menu of 100% organic and locally sourced delicious dishes throughout the weekend.
To make the weekend something completely different, the Marché des Modes will serve up new activities. You can kick off the day Sunday a yoga vinyasa class with Julie Cousin (Julyoga) to get you in the right mood. There are also Do-It-Yourself workshops that will be given by Sophie Masson Porcelaine, Atelier Moon and Lenna before you can discover the latest collections from these designers.
Porcelain DIY Workshop by Sophie Masson : with guidance from the designer herself, you can customise your porcelain object with a phrase or design of your very own. Items offered will be: a mug, a medallion and another porcelain piece for you to choose from. Please note: in order to personalise your object, please email your phrase or design to the following address at least five days before the workshop’s date: firstname.lastname@example.org. The designer will keep the objects at the end of the workshop so that she can enamel them. You will be able to pick your object up some days later at her boutique-atelier in Le Vestiaire…
