During the holidays I found a gem of a documentary about the creation of a new collection at the Chanel workshop in Paris.
It is filmed in June 2020 and you can see how the most beautiful garments are designed and created from scratch.
What is so great about it, is that you for example, can see
how tweed is made/woven and how the pretty trims on Chanel jackets are created. Also, you can see what a 3 piece sleeve looks like (the sleeve used for Chanel jackets) and how amazing some of the cotton toiles (test pieces) look already!
If you look closer, you can also see the use of silk organza as an extra firming layer in many of the delicate garments. All techniques we use in our French Couture Jacket course!
So, for me, this 1-hour documentary is full of inspiration and eye candy behind the scenes and if you have the time to fully watch it please do,
I can highly recommend it! :)
