Have you ever wondered why couture pieces cost so much? The pieces that sell for anywhere between, $2,000-$30,000, have a certain allure since buyers know they will be able to avoid that awkward “she stole my look” moment when they show up to a party, since the garment is one of a kind. The pieces may bring peace of mind, but that’s not what designers are charging for! It’s the hours of intense, and tedious labor that ateliers put into garment. This video from Dior’s Le Petit Theatre, shows what goes into making a custom gown that originally debuted in the spring/summer collection of 1949. They recreate the mini version of the dress! The handiwork that it takes is just astounding! You can watch the video HERE!
