The Moulin Rouge dazzles on stage thanks to our artists and technicians, but none of it would be possible without those who work behind the curtain, out of sight! A large part of the cabaret’s magic is brewed deep in the heart of our “Maisons d’Art” ateliers. Exceptional arts and crafts professions, vital to the enchantment infused into our Revue show and without which the magic of the Moulin Rouge would be incomplete.


Come and learn more about these rare and precious talents, by exploring their universe during the next European Art and Crafts Days (called JEMA)!


A one-of-a-kind event in the world, the JEMA is the chance to turn the spotlight on arts and crafts professionals. The theme of the upcoming edition? At your fingertips! An invitation to dive into the fabulous atmosphere of the Moulin Rouge and its exceptional artisans.


On 6th and 7th of April, experience something out of the ordinary by coming to learn about the Maisons d’Art that bring the Moulin Rouge spirit to life through their creations!


     Maison Clairvoy: Created in 1945, for over 60 years Maison Clairvoy has been dedicated to creating high-end, custom-made shoes for individuals and artists in the world of entertainment and movies! In the workshop, master shoe-makers work day after day to dress the feet of our dancers with the most elegant of shoes, an integral part of the stage costumes.

     Atelier Valentin: The magic is in the details! And Atelier Valentin brings it out, delicately and masterfully embellishing our costumes with embroidery, beads and sequins. True creators of beauty, the artists in this renowned Maison roll out made-to-measure art, to activate the costumes’ magic as the dancers enter the stage.

     Mine Vergès Atelier: A huge part of the magic of the Moulin Rouge is embodied by its costumes! The couturiers at the Mine Vergès Atelier make flamboyant costumes from the highest quality materials, embellished with handmade details, so that the world-famous cabaret may shine on stage in all its effervescence.

     Maison Février: Elegance and delicacy come to life at Maison Février, the last remaining feathermaker based in the heart of Paris. Renowned in the world of fashion and luxury, the feather artists pour all their expert know-how into the magic of the Moulin Rouge, through unique pieces. Voluptuous boas, breathtaking collar pieces: true feathery wonders that ornament the dancers to light up the stage! 


During the JEMA, you can come and meet members of these four exceptional Maisons d’Art and discuss their professions, offering you a unique journey into the mysteries of the artistic crafts behind the show.


After meeting Nicolas Maistriaux, artisan shoe-maker at Maison Clairvoy, you will also discover the dexterity of the embroidery artists from Atelier Valentin, joined by Caroline Valentin. Next, Maxime Fontanier from the Costume Design Workshops at Mine Vergès will recount how their stage costumes come to life under his and his team’s fingers. Finally, it’s feather time and the masterful skills from behind the scenes at the Moulin Rouge, with Maison Février.
