FABTV: The Making of Chanel Haute Couture, Look 39

We ooh and ahh at haute couture, but we rarely stop to think, how did they create that awe-inspiring piece? Chanel has put together a short behind-the-scenes video, revealing how Look 39 from the Chanel Haute Couture Fall '09 collection was made. It starts with Madame Jacqueline preparing the toile of the jacket after looking at a sketch by Karl Lagerfeld. Then Madame Cécile carefully examines the toile of the dress. Finally, the design is transferred onto tracing paper, and the magic begins. I'll let the work speak for itself.

I loved watching and listening to the video. The different sounds of just the handiwork made it seem more intimate.

in couture, almost everything is hand done. If it isn't, then it's not couture! Those women are super pros!

My jaw dropped when I saw how beautiful the beading was when they flipped it over. All that work is astounding. I always just figured a machine popped those out

I find it incredible that Chanel is able to have THE Chanel LOOK for all its pieces yet forever changing at the same time. It was a great idea on their part to let us understand the inspirations, thoughts and processes that made the piece. A little bit of a fan service too, because we are all great fans! Thanks for the video too!
