Upstairs in the boutique: CC’s Workshop. As in the drugstores of yesteryear, well-arranged and labeled boxes cover the walls up to the ceiling; the large welder's table sits alongside sewing machines and computers. Threads, silks and multicolored feathers overflow everywhere. In the background, FIP and the discreet exchanges between the designer and her assistants. This is where the crowns and earrings, necklaces and bracelets are designed, assembled, refined and packaged, beautifully displayed on the ground floor.
