How a Dior Dress is Made | Visionaire | Refinery29

Subscribe to the Refinery29 channel: http://bit.ly/subscribe-to-r29 “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. We wanted to get closer to couture — and to get you closer to couture — so we partnered with the legendary fashion publisher Visionaire to create this video, which tells the story of one dress from birth to runway. It’s a unique look inside the Dior atelier, where the team has been hard at work bringing creative director Raf Simons’ ideas to life. While an individual couture garment can take half a year to produce, here you will see the story of one dress (“Look #53,” in fashion-speak) come together in just a few minutes — from the first muslin pattern to the final style model Kinga Rajzak wore during yesterday’s haute couture show. 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. While Look #53 is the star of the show, the video gives us the chance to reconnect with the rarely credited artisans and seamstresses we saw in Dior and I, as well as a cameo from Simons himself. Think of this as a mini-trip to Paris or a crash course into fashion’s highest form; either way, enjoy your couture, concentrated.

They copied traditional Hmong clothing. How unoriginal and colonistic.

For people who are amazed or says this confirms the quality and high price of the brand is wrong. This is just a one off design for runway show. Its not designed for mass manufacturing, so they an do whatever they want and spend alot of time on it.

Honestly the best thing about this was seeing faces I recognised from Dior & I in the atelier. If you liked this video, watch that documentary!!! Not stuffy or boring, at all.

*More than the design (color scheme) of the dress... i was captivated by the craftsmanship of the unknown tailors and other staffs behind the scene who bring the design onthe canvas to life ( no offence to the designer though. The end product was not my type )*

Beautiful dresses but disappointing video. It doesn't show how one dress is made. We see only snippets of how parts are crafted. A better video is "House of Dior/Making of Red Bar Coat". Exquisite.

Whats wrong with these Models

Ahhh the room is so bright and sterile looking. Sewing is creating, I need a much more creative space. The worlds best seamstresses and they don't get any credit.

Wow that part at the beginning where the man and the woman were scrunching the striped fabric was so interesting.

I agree, a lot of hard work put in by many only to have 1 person take the recognition... bull shit! However, as a side note... not a single decent looking item amongst it all
Beautiful just Beautiful I love it and wish that I had the money and the figure to have a beautiful dress like that thank you for the share Hugs from Milton Keynes UK

Is it just me or does the thumbnail look like a bunch of bic pens
babyhols666 (4 months ago)
isnt sad to think these couture dresses (not just dior) only really get seen and worn on the runway, celebs dont even wear half of it and thats the only other time u would see them! nor do i understand how they make their money from couture dresses since theyd only be temporarily given to a celeb for an event

It used to be my job, and these dresses can take 100s of hours to make. At least this one was only adorned with ribbon and no hand embroidery, as it makes it even longer to make.
Claudine Bongon (4 months ago)
That’s why they’re expensive

For the record those stripes dying, factories do, not Dior. They just buy from tape shop and use it. And seriously use hands to sew them on fabric? no one does that. People use sewing machine. Or they are technologicaly backward.
space raider (5 months ago)
what a waste of humanity and potential, all these people could be doing something useful with their lives, like being doctors and scientists, instead they choose this. making ridicolous clothes noone is going to wear except anorexic models (most of whom are acually high end prostitutes) and maybe some rich people to show off how rich they are to the porrer classes, instead of spending all that money they dont need for feedeing the hungry and helping those who cant help themselves.... one word - disgusting

I can't stop watching this video. I had no idea how pleats were made. Those ladies and gentlemen are very special. I would love to see more videos like this pleeeeease.
Reece McCallum (6 months ago)
What did they use to make the pleating?
Rene James (6 months ago)
I am blown away!!!! I would do anything to work at Dior or Chanel. I would sweep the floors so long as I could see what was happening. Mindblowingly fantastic💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐

Couture is art.
ruhle65 (6 months ago)
Beautiful! For those folks who judge and moan about the high cost of couture, maybe this will put the bitching to rest. Yeah, one person can buy the dress but hundreds have good jobs because of that one person.
Maeve Leyden (6 months ago)
