1. THE EMBROIDERY
MAKING OF A HAUTE COUTURE LOOK

The sketch is initially interpreted in the form of a toile and reproduced in the fabrics chosen by the Studio.

Using a sample, the design is created first on tracing paper according to the pattern provided by the House ateliers.

The lace and the silk tulle are positioned onto an embroidery frame and then the embroidery is done using the Luneville technique: this technique is executed on the underside of the fabric on an embroidery frame with one hand holding the hook and the other beneath the frame moving the tubes forward.

2. THE ASSEMBLING

The pieces completed by the Lesage ateliers are sent to the Chanel ateliers so the seamstresses can start the assembling of the model.

The dress and the underslip are then adjusted on a mannequin to check that the proportions and silhouette as imagined by Karl Lagerfeld are respected.
