It’s ball gown and fashion week season. Dior films their process of construction on a lot of their garments and accessories including a few pieces from their Haute Couture Spring 2018 show. One of their dresses had layered colours painted onto the fabric before cutting the material to make the dress. The process is fascinating and mesmerising to watch.
Couture is a world in which time and talent count for so much more than trends. If Dior can date its history back to 1947, the family-run Paris atelier of Hurel can date it even further. The hand-painting of nine panels of organza is followed by their embroidering with umpteen thousands of tiny sequins, an ultra laborious savoir-faire that is so effortlessly expressed when it appears on the Dior Haute Couture runway for the Spring-Summer 2018 collection designed by #MariaGraziaChiuri.⠀ #DiorSavoirFaire #DiorCouture #PFW
With seeing all these videos and the masses of colour and gowns I have seen on the red carpet this past week or so gowns is all thats been on my mind. In sync with my pinspiration this week I went for pastel colours of a gown but like Dior i layered a few colours creating an ombré and sheer effect on my gown.
