Video of the Day – Chanel Haute Couture

Making of the Chanel Spring//Summer ’13 Haute Couture Collection

This video may be from over a year ago, but it’s certainly worth reposting.

The skill and detail that goes into a single haute couture gown is a spectacular thing. More than one gown and that’s nearly miracle status work. These artists and designers put their hearts and souls into their creations and it shows; you’d need a magnifying glass to notice a single flaw. Just as pretty as the Chanel designs in this video is the music, in particular, Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé suite 2.

(FUN FACT) I adored the song so much that after I found this video I discovered a symphony in Scotland that was willing to let me use their performance of Daphnis et Chloé in my thesis project.

Anyways, watch and enjoy.

And in an ultra nerdy girl moment, see if you can spot Cara Delevingne on the runway.

    Julia, this is a wonderful video! Couldn’t help but wonder if there will be any of these craftsmen/ladies left in a few years? It would be a shame to see those skills disappear. Also, Daphnis and Chloe has been ones of my all time faves for many, many years!


    • I’d like to hope that the craft of haute couture will continue for many years to come – though I’m sure the number of people with that skill/talent is dropping. And that’s wonderful to know, I wish I would have heard Daphnis et Chloe earlier in my life! Such a beautiful piece.
