The art of Couture is very special. CHANEL creates some of the most magnificent pieces each Couture season, and I’ve always known images online just don’t do the craftsmanship justice. When I received an invitation to view the collection during fashion week, it was a dream come true.
We made our way to CHANEL’s 5th Avenue offices and were ushered upstairs to the beautiful showroom.
The attention to detail in CHANEL’s couture pieces are incredible. Floral embroidery, strands of beads and jewels, neatly stitched piles of overlapping paillettes and sequins. It’s was a feast for the eyes! As we examined each piece, we found new elements to marvel at. Like the beaded pocket linings and the silk tulle fabrics that created the most spectacular silhouettes. There was a lot to photograph and take in, so much so that part two of up close with the couture will be on the site tomorrow.
We departed the presentation on a dreamy CHANEL cloud, feeling inspired, excited and completely in awe of the house of CHANEL.
