The Magic Behind the Seams: Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2011

      Ever wondered what goes into making one of those over-the-top haute couture runway looks? This video, filmed at the Dior Haute Couture Atelier, offers a peek.

    The video,  follows the making of a dress from spring/summer 2011.  It's pretty wild watching a whole team of people devote what must be hundreds of hours of painstaking labor to a single item of clothing. 
   “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.
    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. 
    Think of this as a mini-trip to Paris or a crash course into fashion’s highest form; either way, enjoy your couture, concentrated.
