Dior designer Raf Simons is something of an alchemist, turning simple elements into the most wondrous fashion creations the world has ever seen. For Spring 2015 Haute Couture, Simons approached the collection with his signature magic, transforming fabrics into bell-shaped princess gowns, mixing and dying each intricate ribbon that lines the skirt of the gowns, pinching and gathering them into plissé shapes. For those who eat, sleep, and breathe the minutiae of fashion creation, this video offers macro close-ups of the development process of Dior’s couture collection. It takes you literally inches away from the fingertips of Dior’s artisans as they craft the more impressive looks from Spring 2015 Couture Week. Prepare to be amazed by the intense level of skill that goes into every element of the latest Dior triumph and witness it all come to life before your eyes when you watch the video below.
