This documentary is a little old, but Signe Chanel (House of Chanel) takes us into the world of Chanel Haute Couture. As viewers we see how a collection moves along from conception of ideas, the drawings and pattern making. Then there is the intricate garment creation and eventually the runway show (where Oprah has a small cameo).
But what happens after a fashion show? Watch and see, there are some lucky (wealthy) ladies who can afford to purchase these one-of-a-kind, personally tailored garments.
If you have fast internet and some time of your hands, it is worth seeing the whole documentary, the amount of work and talent that goes into creating a single garment is amazing. The collection the documentary follows is the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2004 collection The DVD of the documentary is available in Colette, or see below the fold for the links to the YouTube clips which make up the entire documentary.
