Parodi - The Petite Museum

This is a documentary about Paquita Parodi who worked on her first garment at the age of twelve when her grandmother challenged her to repair a chemise to its original state. Her prowess as a novice seamstress won her the first piece as a reward. She never imagined that this first challenge would recur countless times in the future, shaping her into one of the leading collectors and restoration experts of vintage fashion. A native of Madrid, Spain, Parodi spent her childhood browsing through the antique shops of the El Rasto district, where she discovered the thickness of filigree patterns features in Edwardian lace garments and Irish Crochet pieces.
