Pigalle, Paris’ red light district is really more touristy and risqué than what it is supposed to be. Yes, there’s Moulin Rouge, already famous before the movie starring Nicole Kidman. And of course, there is Montmarte with the church on top of the hill and also an artist colony around it.
Now, there is Andrea Crews, a platform for creative action, a collective that uses a strong and playful style under the artistic direction of Maroussia Rebecq. With its projects based on the use and reinterpretation of second-hand garments, Andrea Crews creates unique and sometimes one-of-a-kind apparel that embraces the ‘green fashion philosophy’ without gimmickry.
Collaborating with individuals, institutions public or private, Andrea Crews, for the past five years have been recycling clothing. In its small shop in Pigalle, recycling garments is real and not just for publicity.
