Making CHANEL Fall-Winter 2014/15 Haute Couture Collection

Hiya Fragrant Fashionistas,

Here is a beautiful insight into the complete and utter hour intensive, old school, haute couture creation process. Every stitch and every bead must be done by hand, it is a failing art and ultimately extraordinarily expensive. Still done at 31 Rue Cambon in Paris above the flagship store, and if you are lucky you can see the staircase leading up to the atelier, and Coco’s rooms.

Now under the direction of the incredible Karl Lagerfeld, the man who seems so much a part of CHANEL that it’s hard to remember the house before him for many of us. Personally I think he has carried the flag for CHANEL impeccably.

Enjoy the mini movie, I keep showing the CHANEL ones because they are often the best and most beautiful,

  1. I drool every time I see one of these “how we made it” videos. I wonder how much one of these fully beaded dresses weighs. So stunningly beautiful.

    • Hi Tatiana,
      I am 100% with you. Incredible and I bet many of them weigh a ton.
      Back when I was a slip of a thing a friend gave me an ex Moschino runway dress, it was silk and glass beads. When I wore it I felt like a billion dollar baby, even seeing it in the wardrobe for years after I’d grown out of it used to give me a thrill.

    • Hi there Jackie B
      Sometimes it’s nice to know that such things still exist, even though we will probably never get to shimmy around in a CHANEL Haute Couture gown
