Stop watching Netflix series and close your book. Here is a - free - film about Chanel's Haute couture from A to Z. It is a film by Loic Prigent.
Haute couture documentary
This You-tube movie is certainly not a little movie; it is true documentary. The film lasts an hour and you will enjoy it. The film was shot from June to July 2020, after the lockdown in Paris, but still in the middle of the pandemic. You will notice the face masks and the social distance rules.
Behind the scenes
The documentary shows the ateliers of Chanel, the new director Virginie Viard, the seamstresses, the leaders of the workshops, the studios, the fit models Amanda and Cris, the embroidery artists, the photographer and all the other people behind the scenes. A bit like the book: Chanel, the making of a collection.
Despite the hectic nature that is inherent in making Haute couture collections, the documentary also shows nice relaxing moments, social interactions among the employees and coffee & coockies. What is striking is the passion of the employees when they are talking about their work and how proud they are to work for Chanel.
An honest documentary about the makers behind the Chanel brand. And definitely worth watching every minute of it!
Inspiration? Yes, after this documentary you immediately want to start making Haute couture yourself!
