    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.

    THE BRIDE <BR />FALL-WINTER 2015/16 HAUTE COUTURE

    THE BRIDE
    FALL-WINTER 2015/16 HAUTE COUTURE

    Karl Lagerfeld for the closing look of the Fall-Winter 2015/16 Haute Couture show had a surprise up his sleeve: his tuxedo bride. Out stepped Kendall Jenner in her white satin wedding suit. This was a pretty unconventional bride, her look subtly playing on masculine-feminine codes with its wide-shouldered, double-breasted jacket – sporting epaulettes, four pockets and two rows of buttons – with a camellia tacked to its lapel, matched with a slightly flared pant.
    Accentuating the graphic yet relaxed lines of the tuxedo were the strap-on booties with geometric heels (the footwear look for all the collection, also in black and ivory). The only nod to tradition came in the form of the long embroidered tulle veil, which flowed from the shoulders to form a quirky train, lending a feminine twist to the silhouette.
