Julie Brossette worked in fashion before turning to event organization in 2010.
The designer draws inspiration from London for her temporary pop-art installations. She now creates projects for the La Rochelle Francofolies music festival, as well as for her renowned Pop Up Markets. As for César and Pauline de Mille, after three years in Helsinki, the duo – one of whom worked in animation and the other in textile and fashion - returned to Lyon in 2015 and founded a design and visual art studio called Miracle de Mille. All three are advocates of multi-disciplinary projects, having met through their shared affinities for textiles, fashion and the pop world. In 2018, they teamed up with scenery designer Patrick Laurino for their first participation in the Festival of Lights, entitled Air Light.
Just before the Pont de Lattre-de-Tassigny, below the Quai de Serbie, a string of small lights flutters 6 metres up, as if preparing to fly away. These customized, iridescent air vents are like illuminated banners, showing visitors a waymarked trail to the Tête d'Or Park. Continuing towards the park, just before Pont Churchill, a second clique of coloured candles leads the public back up onto the road to walk into the park. Air Light uses floating, aerial objects and pictograms to create a dreamlike atmosphere and convey a pop-art vision of the tradition of lighting candles on 8 December.
