As We Begin Haute Couture Week Fall 2015 Let’s Remember The People Who Create The Details

This is one of my favorite documentary behind the scenes films. This film was commissioned by The Royal Ontario Museum which shows the craftsmanship and artistry of the men and women who create the amazing clothing that’s almost a lost art.
On this blog you will notice that I will often refer to the details. It’s my passion. People say the devil is in the details, I say the details are heavenly.

It’s so exciting to see the artisans work!

For most designers it’s in the details, but just how do those intricate embellishments come to be? Here is a rare glimpse inside Paris’ iconic Maison Hurel, which has been creating embroideries for haute couture clients like Chanel and Valentino since 1870. Legendary design houses, including Saint Laurent, J. Mendel, Jason Wu, Gucci, Tom Ford, and Roberto Cavalli have been calling on Hurel to enhance their collections with unique fabrics, exquisite stitching, and dazzling beadwork.
