The Un jour dans le temps studio has fifteen years’ experience
The Studio has made its key activity the production of photographs in period costumes. Sharing premises with the Vertugadins costume workshop, a special partnership has naturally led us to join forces in creating costume photography.
For fifteen years now we have shared the same path, which has allowed us to enrich our visual and creative experience to be able to offer all-in-one packages. This harmoniousy of understanding, creativity and cohesion is rare in our fields.
A team, a Passion, Costume, and You
Casali was born into silver photography and learnt all the techniques involved during a photo apprenticeship at Louis Lumière school in Paris and then in the fashion industry during the 80s. He then continued his training for five years in a photo lab in the heart of Paris, which led him to switch from analogical to digital. For a decade, he created websites. Along the way, he once more picked up his camera, in order to do take onstage photographs. In 2003, he came across a theatre company and met Émilie Monchovet and Guënic Prado, founders of the Atelier des Vertugadins costume workshop. Costume photography became the heart of what the studio produced.
A costume designer
Émilie’s family have been lace-makers since 1860. Imagine the little girl opening her great-grandmother’s chest of drawers and finding magnificent outfits, discovering her great-great-great-uncle’s lace patterns in his writing desk… That was what revealed her attraction to costume. Her friendship duo with Guënic Prado became the foundation of a company. The two expanded their activity and created l’Atelier des Vertugadins, which today has 8,000 costumes from all periods: it is the wardrobe of French Haute Façon, with high quality materials and exceptional workmanship. Today, in 2020, a team of ten costume designers has joined them.
Un jour dans le temps has its own studio: The Atelier d’en Face Studio.

Delphine Savoye Leblanc
It was a slightly crazy painter and sculptor who uncovered for me, when I was around ten years old, the secrets of the chromatic circle, the softness of Indian ink, the magic of stained glass… Crafting and creating, has always been means of escape for me, nearly a form of meditation. Artistic make-up gave me what I was looking for. At first I was attracted by learning special effects, but then the historic dimension became self-evident. Meeting l’Atelier des Vertugadins and Stéphane Casali enabled me to go further in terms of knowledge, techniques, research and so on.
