There is a discussion on Stitchers Guild about a PBS Program called Haute Couture. This discussion has been going on since the summer and I've patiently waited for my local PBS Station to air the program. It is a very interesting program about the women who can afford to purchase these exquisite couture outfits, their views on couture and their collections.
However, during the course of the conversation on Stitchers Guild, TerriK discussed a set of videos that are presently being shown on You Tube called "Signe Chanel". Now I don't have much free time and I waited until this morning to watch them. Terri said they are an amazing look at the inside of Karl Legerfeld's House of Chanel and she was sooooo right!
Karl allowed the cameras to go behind the scenes into the workrooms, with the publicity people, the braidmaker and the shoemaker. It is an awesome series of videos about how one of his couture collections come together. So first, thank you Terri for pointing out these videos! I only seem to visit You Tube when someone either sends me a link or points me there in a specific direction. But these videos and the last couple of hours that I've spent watching them was well worth the trip!
And for all of you who haven't yet seen the collection of videos here is a link:

I hope you enjoy the videos as much as I did! Even if fashion isn't your thing, check out the videos just because they let you go inside the atelier of a major Parisian fashion house and see what happens!
Just from watching them, my mind is bursting with creativity and inspiration! And, I have to remember to slow down and enjoy the process because when you take your time amazing things happen!
