How a Dior Dress is Made | Visionaire | Refinery29

Subscribe to the Refinery29 channel: http://bit.ly/subscribe-to-r29 “Couture” is a magic word. It conjures thoughts of impeccable craftsmanship, visionary design, and legendary fashion moments. But, most of us don't encounter haute couture very often, unless we're looking at a celebrity on the red carpet, a model on a catwalk, or a mannequin in a museum case. We wanted to get closer to couture — and to get you closer to couture — so we partnered with the legendary fashion publisher Visionaire to create this video, which tells the story of one dress from birth to runway. It’s a unique look inside the Dior atelier, where the team has been hard at work bringing creative director Raf Simons’ ideas to life. While an individual couture garment can take half a year to produce, here you will see the story of one dress (“Look #53,” in fashion-speak) come together in just a few minutes — from the first muslin pattern to the final style model Kinga Rajzak wore during yesterday’s haute couture show. It’s an incredible revelation, and when you discover what goes into these garments, the crazy prices on couture start to seem at least a little less crazy. While Look #53 is the star of the show, the video gives us the chance to reconnect with the rarely credited artisans and seamstresses we saw in Dior and I, as well as a cameo from Simons himself. Think of this as a mini-trip to Paris or a crash course into fashion’s highest form; either way, enjoy your couture, concentrated.

CHANEL Making of the Fall 2016 Haute Couture Paris by Fashion Channel
 
03:31
Without the virtuosity of its petites mains working in the secrecy of the ateliers, Haute Couture wouldn’t have its unique and incomparable brilliance. At CHANEL their expertise is deployed in two tailleur ateliers and two flou ateliers [tailoring and dressmaking]. Karl Lagerfeld wished to pay them tribute by dedicating to them the Fall-Winter 2016/17 CHANEL Haute Couture collection presented this Tuesday on July 5th. So, beneath the glass roof of the Grand Palais, the ateliers on the rue Cambon have been recreated down to the smallest detail. Tables, sewing machines, mirrors, pins, fabrics, multi-coloured threads, toiles and mannequins: the inner world of seamstresses is put under the spotlight and animated before the audience by the premières of the ateliers, followed by their seconds and the 78 seamstresses from the House of CHANEL which counts more than 120. “I thought that was a modern idea to make them participate. They should be shown too.” This season the cut is defined by a sleek, pure silhouette. It forms the thread running through a structured and graphic collection. Beveled or angular cut shoulders, held with stitches create a “standing up” effect, framing a flat profile without any padding. The 3/4 length sleeves answer the 7/8 turn-ups hems of the culottes and wide-cut trousers worn over draped leather thigh boots. The tweed jackets highlight the waist with protruding pockets on the hips. Coat dresses and jacket dresses in tweed form games of trompe-l’œil. An ethereal hairstyle tied back with a grosgrain headband further enhances and blurs these strict and geometric shapes. For evening, the silhouette is inspired by the work of English illustrator Aubrey Beardsley. While shoulders and hems of dresses are adorned with crests of feathers, the high waists, sometimes punctuated with protruding pockets, smooth the silhouettes. Dresses flare out over soft cages, almost tracing a pencil line. The fabrics radzimir, ziberline, mikado, taffetas and faille are joined by chiffons, crêpe georgette, organza, silk tulle, embroidered laces and almost transparent grosgrains. The same refinement is reflected in the treatment of colour. Autumnal shades – browns, marron glacé, oranges, beige and greys – are nuanced and enriched with a palette of pinks, blacks and whites as block colours or woven in duos. The exacting perfection of Haute Couture is reflected in the minute details sometimes barely visible. Thus linings of protruding pockets are reworked, stitching is spun with fringed spirals and braids are plaited with tulle and tweed. The embroidery of stones, matt sequins, beads and feathers are combined and multiplied endlessly to create enchanting flowers and compose neck straps. Draping alternates with bias cut pleats as well as accordion, cone, sunray and flat pleats. Articulated jewellery is transformed into frogging and precious cuffs. The highlight of the collection is the bride. This season Karl Lagerfeld has imagined her in a bustier and trousers fashioned from lace, tulle and satin encrusted with strands of pink and white wool, and kept warm with jacket and train embroidered with feathers. As bearer of this tradition and guardian of a unique savoir-faire, Haute Couture embodies the primary vocation of CHANEL. More than ever it is a laboratory of ideas, the quintessence of creativity and dreams applauded this Tuesday, July 5th 2016 by CHANEL ambassadresses Vanessa Paradis, Willow Smith, Zhou Xun and Caroline de Maigret, actor Will Smith and actresses Jessica Chastain, Milla Jovovich and Hari Nef. #ChanelAteliers #ChanelHauteCouture YOUTUBE CHANNEL: http://www.youtube.com/fashionchannel WEB TV: http://www.fashionchannel.it/en/web-tv FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/fashionchannelmilano TWITTER: https://twitter.com/FashionChannelP PINTEREST: http://pinterest.com/fashionchannel INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/fashionchanneltv The best videos, the most exclusive moments of the international runway since 1982 until now, of the most representative fashion weeks of the world.

1950s Parisian Couture: Glamour, Elegance and Class
 
09:48
Glamour, Elegance and Class - three adjectives that set the mood of 1950s Parisian couture. Adjectives soon to be considered old fashioned by the modern casual movement. But as these photographs show - this was an era - probably the last - of graceful black and white photography and dignified, perhaps even haughty, but certainly classy models. The look was distinct. The cut of the clothes was simple which required an excellence in the finishing - nothing could be hidden behind embellishment. 1950s Parisian couture - refined French chic. The background music is On Green Dolphin Street by Miles Davies. The Three Graces - Elegance, Beauty and Style. My Philosophy for a sublime way of living. My aim - to bring a touch of old world grace and discreet glamour to the everyday. "Having class - it's not half the battle - it's the whole war" Also on Tumblr : http://bellisvintage.tumblr.com/archive http://bellisvintagemono.tumblr.com/archive "Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

15 MOST Luxurious Fashion Brands
 
11:15
From Oscar de la Renta to Chanel, here are some of the most lavish and prestigious fashion brands. Subscribe to Hindered Thoughts http://goo.gl/d3U3RP 6. Chanel The high fashion wear company was introduced to the world back in 1909 by none other than Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, otherwise known as “Coco Chanel.” This is where the brand gets its inspiration for the famously recognizable logo that is two interlocking C’s. The company specializes in creating haute couture for its wealthy clients but also for fashion models like Naomi Campbell, who once modeled for them, and actresses Marilyn Monroe, Keira Knightley, and Nicole Kidman. One of their most famous products is the perfume No. 5 de Chanel, along with the Chanel Suit. Today, Chanel is valued at being $6.8 billion dollars. An interesting fact to note is that Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director behind Fendi, happens to be the creative director for Chanel as well. 5. Prada Founded back in 1913 by Mario Prada, this fashion brand actually started out by manufacturing leather bags and trunks. It would then evolve into selling everything from clothing to perfume and even a brief stint of LG Prada cell phones. Though the brand may have broadened its inventory, it still spends the majority of its focus creating some of the world’s most exclusive handbags that only the rich and famous can possibly hope to afford. Mario Prada believed that women should not be involved in business so he excluded his own family members from getting involved. In a fantastic twist of irony, his son did not care to run the business so his daughter Luisa Prada took over as his successor and is now currently being run by her daughter Miuccia. 4. House of Versace The fashion empire that is the House of Versace all started with fashion designer Gianni Versace back in 1978. He created a brand that has been synonymous with elegance and simply oozes high fashion. His glamorous gowns have gone on to make a name for himself as a respected designer. Like the case of the famous black dress held with gold safety pins that actress Elizabeth Hurley wore back in 1994 to the premiere of Four Weddings and A Funeral. Sadly, Versace’s life was cut short in 1997 on the steps of his Miami mansion when he became the fifth and final victim of Andrew Cunanan. The tragic event will be the story behind American Crime Story’s season 2 titled: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. After his death, his sister Donatella became the new Artistic Director and has established a $5.5 billion company her brother would be proud of. 3. Gucci Started in 1921 by a Mr. Guccio Gucci, the company was originally dabbing in leather goods. It wasn’t until 19 years later when his son Aldo would take the company from being a one-stop shop into the fashion powerhouse that it’s now known for being. It’s Aldo that would usher in the era of the brand’s iconic “Bamboo Bag” and its “ready to wear segments.” In the 90’s, the company decided to bring American Fashion designer Tom Ford to revamp their women’s wear. He ended up helping launch the brand to where it is today. The fashion brand houses other well-known designers in its collections such as Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Yves Saint Laurent. If you’re in the market to do some shopping at this $12.4 billion brand, expect to spend at least $2,000. 2. Louis Vuitton This may come as a shock but the famous fashion brand has been around longer than you might have thought. Formed 163 years ago in 1854, a young man by the name of Louis Vuitton started out as an apprentice for a box-maker. Vuitton ended up becoming a well-known crafter of luxury trunks and opened up his own shop in Paris. He then ended up becoming the personal box-maker of Napoleon III’s wife, Empress Eugenie de Montijo. Fast forward years later and the company is now worth $28.1 billion with a generated revenue of $10.1 billion. Today, Louis Vuitton doesn’t make just trunks but designer handbags and clothing that can be spotted on the most famous of A-listers. 1. Balenciaga The beginning of Balenciaga’s reign began back in 1919 when it was established by its founder of the same name, Cristóbal Balenciaga. As a young child, Balenciaga became an apprentice to a tailor in his hometown of Getaria, Spain and would eventually get his formal training in Madrid. He would go on to create the House of Balenciaga and skyrocketed to success thanks to his artistic genius. He was hailed as the undisputed “ King of Fashion” and was highly respected among his peers which included the likes of Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, and Pierre Balmain. Balenciaga even helped train the likes of high-fashion designers Oscar de la Renta and Hubert Givenchy to name a few.

Chinese Designer Guo Pei Presents Fashion Show During Paris Haute Couture Week
 
02:18
Chinese fashion designer Guo Pei brought her latest creation to the Paris Haute Couture Week Spring/Summer 2017 on Wednesday in the French capital. Under the theme of 'legend', Guo's fashion show culminated in the appearance of legendary 85-year-old American supermodel Carmen Dell'Orefice. "We started to know the world from the legends of the past. From this show, I want to interpret that what we do today might be legends in future," said Guo. Guo used complicated embroidery with traditional Chinese craftsmanship to render the Gothic architecture in her gowns, expressing a Chinese designer's imagination about classic western civilization. "I'm excited that she is able to interpret so much of European culture and history from a perspective that is so fresh, and just decadent as well and gorgeous," said an audience member. Guo is the first Asian fashion designer to be invited by the Paris Haute Couture Week. The Spring/Summer 2017 show was the third time that she has attended the Paris event. "As a Chinese designer, Guo has made great achievements on the international stage. We are proud of her," said a Chinese audience member attending the show. Guo's portfolio has presented a new look of Chinese contemporary fashion design which has won her recognition from industry experts. "I'm very happy for her, and for China in general, to be discovered as a real designer, not only a country with fabrics, not only [known for] making fashion. You have great talents and Guo Pei is the first one," said Nicolas Gregorieff, editor-in-chief from OFN TV in Dubai. "Many foreigners told me that it was my work that helped them see different Chinese fashion. I think this is China's soft power," said Guo.

The French haute couture designer Adeline Andre
 
01:59
FRANCE, Paris : The French haute couture designer Adeline Andre exhibits for the first time her design sketches in a contemporary art gallery. SYNTHE - Adeline Andr?, designer DOPESHEET Adeline Andre is currently exhibiting for the first time her design sketches in a contemporary art gallery in Paris. Surprised at first, the designer was happy to see all her drawings, the foundations of her work exhibited. Pencil creates the outlines of the models which are painted in watercolours, showing the designs envisaged by Adeline Andre before they were made. The opportunity to discover the importance of the drawings and unmistakable sketches of the designer which were re transcribed onto the clothes. This exhibition also allows us to see for the first time the sketches realised especially for the knitwear collection of the Nina Ricci fashion house which were rejected but kept by their creator. INTERVIEW with Adeline Andre, designer: For me fashion drawings and fashion sketches are really sketches, they have to be drawn quickly. I have always drawn, of course I started to draw, lots of living models in rapid poses. So because I find that when you are drawing clothes, you draw them fully, you draw lots, one after the other, you discard a lot of them and so I have to draw quickly, it has to be fast and after having chosen, the aim is finally the clothes, it's not just an illustration. So I chose of course to work primarily with pencil but also watercolours, because they are also fast to work with, you have to make very fast brushstrokes in a very lively way and I really like the fact that it's so watery like that, so transparent. I always imagine the completed clothes and ask myself why I want to create this piece. I imagine it in its completion but often I wont end up designing it. Days can go by, in the end I draw pictures that I think are ugly. I have to end up just doing the drawings...It's very important, all at once I feel in the drawings if the proportions are good, if there is something going on.

PARIS STREET STYLE #2 | Paris Fashion week (French/English subs)
 
08:43
It’s Paris fashion week y’all and I am SO excited to bring you the second video in my Paris Street Style series! Normally it would be “how parisians actually dress”, but as you can see, I interviewed people from all over, with all different kind of aesthetics here especially for Men/womens PWF2019. I really love doing this series (which is always in French with English subtitles or vice versa) because I love self expression and seeing all of the different, colorful outfit ideas. From edgy and grunge, japanese/rock inspired looks to minimalistic scandinavian style and classic French chic, I feel like this video had a really wide range of artsy Fashion trends and looks to inspire you! I think it’s also really cool that both teens/highschooler students and older people can come together around Fashion week and their appreciation for this art form. It’s also pretty inspiring to me that while some dressed in ‘high fashion’ luxury like balenciaga and dior, others looked just as cool in thrifted/vintage 80s and 90s clothes and minimalism. Some of the brands/places people shopped and mentioned in this video were: Thrifting around Paris, Pull and Bear, Balenciaga, Scandinavian brands like Whyred and acne, as well as fast fashion brands such as zara and h&m. Personally I hope to do more lookbook type videos and interviews with people around paris so please let me know if you enjoy them! Also pleasebe sure to subscribe for more content in French/English. I also do vlogs around France and art school.

Karl Lagerfeld - German fashion designer and icon | DW Documentary
 
42:26
The German-born designer Karl Lagerfeld has died at the age of 85. He was a designer, an artist and a fashion icon. For this sad occasion we recommend a portrait DW made in 2014. No living fashion designer, let alone a German one, was as celebrated as Karl Lagerfeld. On September 10, 2018 the man with the trademark ponytail and sunglasses celebrated his 85th birthday. From dawn to late morning, Karl Lagerfeld designs for Chanel, Fendi and his own signature brand - a combined workload of up to 15 collections a year. A workhorse who never takes breaks or even a vacation, he is also a photographer and filmmaker. His passion for fashion was awakened by a Dior show in Hamburg in 1950. Four years later, at the age of 17, Karl Lagerfeld was hired as an assistant to Pierre Balmain. Karl Lagerfeld recounts his beginnings in the industry, as well as his upper class background and childhood in Schleswig-Holstein. Karl Lagerfeld was greatly influenced by his mother, whom he describes as his personal style icon. Karl Lagerfeld's caustic comments were notorious and dreaded by those at the receiving end. As an artist, Karl Lagerfeld worked in several media, from pictures and photographs to book illustrations and videos. The documentary of 2015 follows Karl Lagerfeld to exhibition openings, during the hectic preparations for his fashion shows, and at photo shoots in Paris as it seeks to uncover the man behind the mask. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Is Haute Couture going to die? ǀ Justine Leconte
 
06:59
Compared to Prêt-à-Porter, Haute Couture is the dream, the fashion week that makes students go to fashion school to study fashion design. Couture is hand-made, made to order, it requires hours of work and it is only for the happy few who can afford a 10,000$ dress. How comes we have Couture fashion week and ready-to-wear fashion week? How comes we have both things within the fashion industry, which fashion houses do both? Why is Haute Couture so expensive?

Where the future of fashion is headed - VPRO documentary
 
50:15
What is the future of fashion and where is the fashion industry heading to? What kind of future do fashion pioneers think of and how do they try to change the way of thinking about fashion? A documentary about the future and a new way of approach to fashion. Every year more than 100 billion new garments are produced. A third of that is never sold, worn and shredded or burned. In the global race for the fastest production at the lowest prices, the fashion and clothing industry has developed into a dazzling Fast Fashion system. That system is not only based on exploitation, but also responsible for 10% of global CO2 emissions. How can we change fashion and still enjoy it? Backlight shows five future fashion pioneers who make their industry future-proof by experimenting with new fabrics, reuse and hi-tech design. Their 'fashion of the future' goes far beyond sustainability alone. They also force us to look differently at beauty and the role that clothing plays in our lives. During the Fashion Week in London, the British duo Vin + Omi presents a haute couture collection made with fabrics based on plants and plastic bottles. The Amsterdam label Hacked By is experimenting with the reuse of clothing surpluses, in collaboration with the large fashion chains that produce these surpluses. And the Flemish designer Jasna Rokegem presents the possibility of clothing, which is made every morning by a 3D printer. Or will we all in the future wear that one ultimate piece of clothing that changes with our moods, protects us against bacteria, repairs itself and never needs to be washed? Almost weekly the fast fashion carousel spits out new collections. The production time between the catwalks in Paris, London and Milan and the clothes racks of the big chains such as H & M and Zara is shorter than ever. Fashion has become affordable and accessible to everyone, but we buy too much and the clothing industry pollutes the planet. The surpluses of returned and unsold garments are accumulating. Even African countries do not want the discarded new clothing anymore, because it disrupts internal production. Every second a truck full of new textiles is burnt somewhere. Getting out of this vicious cycle turns out to be difficult for consumers, designers and producers, and still – a difference can be made. Original title: Future fashion With: Vin + Omi (fashion designers), Orsola de Castro (founder Fashion Revolution), Jasna Rokegem (digital designer, inventor and founder Jasna Rok), Otto von Busch (author, teacher at Parsons School of Design, New York) and Francisco van Benthum & Alexander van Slobbe (fashion designers and founders Hacked By).

WHAT IS HAUTE COUTURE?
 
01:30
Haute couture is high end fashion that is constructed by hand from start to finish, made from high quality, expensive, often unusual fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finished by the most experienced and capable sewers, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques. Haute couture can be referenced back as early as the 1700s. Rose Bertin, the French fashion designer to Queen Marie Antoinette, can be credited for bringing fashion and haute couture to French culture. Modernized haute couture shows are not designed and made to be sold, rather they are exactly what they are displayed for - for show. Instead of being constructed for the purpose of selling and making money, they are made to further the publicity, as well as perception and understanding of brand image. Many top designer fashion houses such as Chanel use the word for some of their special collections; these collections are often not for sale, or they are very difficult to purchase. As well, the term "haute couture" has taken on further popular meanings referring to non-dressmaking activities, such as production of fine art, music, etc.
