Video: The Making of a Chanel Haute Couture Outfit

Every piece of haute couture clothing is the product of hours upon hours of manual labor. Chanel gave us exclusive video footage of its seamstresses turning a Karl Lagerfeld sketch into a finished dress and jacket with a five-figure price tag. Each pattern is made and cut by hand. Each sequin is painstakingly sewn on by hand. Every inch of piping and each seam is hand-pinned. Watch the entire process in the video.
