The costume, the outfit, the clothes, the linen, the finery, the belongings, the effects... What is our relationship with our clothes, an inseparable envelope of our daily life, which accompanies us from birth to death and conditions part of our relationship with the world? Whether we dress up to protect ourselves from the outside world, play a social role or simply dress up to show off, the clothes we wear act as a sounding board for our existence.
Confronting practices and points of view, Victoire de Changy uses a unique wedding dress as a starting point for a sensitive and delicate reflection on the relationship we have with our wardrobes and their evolution according to the moments of our lives. She also weaves a parallel between the elaboration of a text and a textile, both of which require care, attention and a particular connection to what surrounds us.

The author :
She has published two novels: A Necessary Dose of Pain(Autrement, 2017), finalist for the Rossel Prize, and L'Île Longue (Autrement, 2018), finalist for the Prix European of Literature, as well as a collection of poetry, The palm bigger than you (L'Arbre de Diane, 2020). With Cambourakis, she has published with Marine Schneider L'ours Kintsugi, finalist for the Sorcières prize, and Le Bison Non-Non.
