It is not often that us mere mortals are allowed to see what happens behind the doors of one of the world’s most prestigious fashion houses, Chanel.
But following this week’s Midsummer Night’s Dream themed Haute Couture show in Paris’ Grand Palais, the general masses have been granted a VIP pass into Karl Lagerfeld’s legendary atelier on Rue Cambon to watch the making of a couture gown. This video lets you in on the secret of what goes into making the intricate (and expensive) gowns which glided down the runway, whilst also giving you a sneak peak into the lavish affair.
An enchanted forest, Cara Delevingne and some very suspect black eye makeup all feature, what more could you want.
If you enjoy this, (which you will), then make time in your busy schedule to watch the 2005 documentary mini series Signe Chanel, which follows Karl and the ladies of his workshop in the run up to the Fall/Winter 2004-2005 Couture show. It is not to be missed.
