Nadhirah here! Currently crying over OCs and various other fictional characters

Mainly Merlin, GOT, Doctor Who but there is the occasional art and fashion reblog which can be added to the river of my tears

CHIMES  |  ( listen )

Sounds to lull you into sleep. A mix for the restless dreamers and sleepers, for heavy hearts and solemn bodies.

Christian Dior Haute Couture ateliers

/look no. 5 from Spring Summer 2011 collection

1. step: the coat is made from white canvas to show the proportions and silhouette (it is done by a ‘modéliste’)

2. step: client tries on the mock-up to see how it fits 

3. step: designer chooses fabrics, colours and embroidery (The fabrics used in Haute Couture are the most luxurious and most expensive ones)

4. step: each part of the coat is cut (There are two ateliers, one for tailoring: Atelier tailleur and one for the dresses: Atelier flou. Each one has its own head seamstress called Première. At Atelier tailleur it is madame Monique, at Atelier flou it is madame Florence

5. step: the embroidery is done in special ateliers in Paris (maison Hurel, maison Lesage)

6. step: fabric is pleated in special ateliers in Paris (ateliers Logon)

7. step: seamstresses assemble the coat (there are many people involved in making one piece, everything is sewn by hand in Paris ateliers)

8. step: the coat is ironed (it is actually ironed after any manipulation or sewing)

9. step: the coat is tagged (it is the final step, and it means, that the piece is ready for the client)

10. step: the coat is delivered to the client… (this is actually where its story begins)
