Since 2003 Chanel’s Métier D’Arts fashion shows celebrated the extraordinary artisan houses that painstakingly work on the components that go into a Chanel piece. Each of the 7 specialties drill down on a particular aspect of the final garment or accessory —embroidery, millinery, boot-making, to name a few
There is nothing better than turning to the Haute Couture fashion shows for wedding inspiration. The dresses are stunning and the presentations are chocked full of ideas that will make brides and grooms swoon with anticipation of their own special day. The literal translation of Haute Couture is High Sewing— it’s a tradition of made-to-order clothing that is offered to clients twice a year and officially can only be held in the city of lights, Paris. This pinnacle of high fashion performance displays the brand’s artisanal prowess with each garment hand-sewed by expert ateliers and multiple fittings for an exclusive end result.
