Arthur Veillon, Young Ambassador 2018, apprenticing with the Master Shoemakers to the Moulin Rouge

Arthur Veillon recently finished a shoemaking apprenticeship at Maison Clairvoy Paris, a position he began after serving as a Young Ambassador at Homo Faber in Venice in 2018 . At the venerable Parisian atelier, he worked closely with the masters who craft the shoes worn by the dancers of the Moulin Rouge – shoes that must be elegant yet hold up night after night. “It’s always very moving to see your work on someone’s feet”, he says, a chance to assess and “to figure out which steps I still need to work on to perfect my craft”. Just the right attitude for an aspiring master artisan.
Visit Arthur at Maison Clairvoy, and catch a glimpse of the magic of the Moulin Rouge.
