This video would have been a hundred times better if you actually let us watch some of these artisans do their work. Instead it was all fast cuts and long shot pans. Not a very good video.

Curious: I know that A Lot of these designs are hand sewn, but, do they ever do this hand sewing to make samples which are then turned to machine make-able designs? Yes, there is a lot of intricate detail, and some of it must be hand sewn, but yes, there were some things I saw that had the potential to be machine fabricated.

What was that tool she was using? Spring loaded to make holes at around 1 min 10 seconds. I have staff that can do all these things but that tool looks very useful. They do it free hand with a sour type rotary wheel

The true Artists behind the "designer" they don't get the credit they should nor the money for their hard work and talents.
Morgan Olfursson (1 year ago)
Interesting though how Hurel who emplys many asian , black and arab women in their ateliers, believe that they are not good enough to be shown on that video, where they used only white girls as if it would make their products look cheaper if it was not made by a blond chick . Congratulation on your racism Hurel, well i know where NOT to get any clothes from , and don't forget that your most important clients are from the Middle East and Asia . I am going to send that video to a few friends of mine who work for some newspaper in Chna and the Emirates see what happens to your orders .

Excuse me!! Would you stop for a moment?! O...man...Haven't you thought-one day- about yourself ? Who has made it? Have you seen a design which hasn't a designer ?! Have you seen a wonderful,delicate work without a worker ?! It's you and the whole universe!.. Who has made them all ?!! You know who ?.. It's "ALLAH",prise be to him. Just think for a moment. How are you going to be after death ?! Can you believe that this exact system of the universe and all of these great creation will end in in nothing...just after death! Have you thought, for a second, How to save your soul from Allah's punishment?! Haven't you thought about what is the right religion?! Read ... and think deeply before you answer.. It is religion of Islam. It is the religion that Mohammad-peace upon him- the last prophet, had been sent by. It is the religion that the right Bible- which is not distorted-has preached. Just have a look at The Bible of (Bernaba). Don't be emstional. Be rational and judge.. Just look..listen...compare..and then judge and say your word.

This is incredible and definitely something I'm interested in pursuing, but unfortunately the school I'm going to they teach you the basics of garment construction, not detailed work such as this because it's geared more towards fashion merchandising and business. I've had to try and learn what I can on my own, but I'm looking to find an internship/apprenticeship related to this line of work. Does anyone have any recommendations as to where to start? I saw someone mention Atelier Lesage, but do they have English-speaking instructors? Unfortunately I don't speak French, but I may need to start because the U.S. really doesn't offer any positions for fine craftsmanship in fashion. It's mainly ready-to-wear and fast fashion nowadays

tina bauer (10 months ago)
I know it's called a "piqueuse" which pretty much just means piercer. Ive been searching for literally years and have found nothing. Very frustrated. I wish the people in the comments who know what it is would just comment a link on where to buy it.
Hi! I'm eager to know something about the tool too. Do you know now? Where to buy it?

Cute Puppy (1 year ago)
damm, so much work goes into a few pieces of fabric we just throw on ourselves, isn't the purpose of wearing clothes is to protect our bodies from the harsher elements of the environment n surroundings? I love clothes n i spent a good deal of money on them, but now I am thinking sometimes we get our priorities wrong, I mean those money spent could be put for better use.

Thats point of few is of a poor person , but imagine if you have no problems and all is taken care of and you're filthy rich its no longer about necessities its about aesthetics . Its about admiring art and clothing yourself in expensive fabrics and incredible detailed patterns ...

I would like to know what the name of the machine is that they are using at 1:10 of the video.
Marine Le Vaillant (1 year ago)
sorry if I reply pretty late, it's a "piqueuse" there is no translation at all, I am sorry, it's like the tip of a needle, wich jabs very fast, usually on 2 layers of paper. Then we use loose pigments with a kind of a brush to introduce the pigments into the tiny holes the machine made. And ... that's it the pattern of the embroidery is printed on your fabric.

Dear Designers...you would be severely limited without the artisans of the ateliers!  Such painstaking work is absolutely amazing.  An art in and of itself.  The design comes to life through the artisans hands!   Thank you Mode for bringing such magnificence into public view.

Venasa Tho (2 years ago)
People wonder why some of these designers sell their clothing at outrageous prices. Eg. "Why is that dress so expensive? It's not even that pretty" Sometimes, it may not be that "pretty" but it's a lot of work. Haute couture takes a lot of time. You have to get the right fabrics, some fabrics are extremely expensive, and when you can get certain fabrics, you make them, When you can't get certain fabrics with certain designs on them, you have people like them, paying close attention to every detail of their work and that my dear, takes a lot of time and effort to master that art!

irmar you are so right in this.
irmar (11 months ago)
If you go to India you will find exquisite hand embroidery for very low prices even in retail shops. Of course you will say that people there exploit human labour and maybe you will be right. BUT once I was visiting an embroidery workshop and when they heard my nationality, they showed me the work they were doing for a very famous Italian designer house. That's how I learned that some of them outsource the embroidery to Indian workshops. But they charge their clients the same as if they were paying Italian embroiderers who would cost ten times as much, with social security and all. The problem is that in Western countries not many people take the trouble to learn this sort of artistic manual arts, and this gives the freedom to clever sellers to sell such items at overblown prices. I remember Rosetta Getty's "Mixed Media Granny Square Cardigan". Any beginner crocheter can make it, yet it was sold for €2.598. But if I made it and sold it, nobody would give me more than 100 plus materials, say 200 euros.

Kass DDD (2 years ago)
Ummm, people usually complain about the prices of the ready to wear collections, as the haute couture pieces don't get listed or priced unless you personally ask. Most high fashion brands care to use good quality materials + a lot of them get their garments made in Europe and not in Asia/Africa, which makes it much more expensive. However, we must not forget all the big names have a name in the industry and just by having a brand slapped onto the garment the price is marked up much higher than it should be. It's much better to pay for a jacket with an interesting cut and design than, for example, a blank t-shirt by a big brand, because at certain point the quality can't increase anymore whatever the price rises.

i would like to know what are the materials call throughout the video..like the rock thing used to copy patterns and the woman was using a machine thing..looked as if she was copying a pattern????? im aware of the tambour
RunWayUnderground (2 years ago)
+Davinah Bowman The "rock" thing is not a rock it's a brick of special/fine textile chalk sometimes called a ponce stone. The hand tool is motorized embroidery paper punch tool. It's for perforating the tracing/tissue paper so that the chalk will go through the holes created by the tool to mark the pattern on to the fabric. There's no real good/efficient way to transfer the designs onto a fine mesh textile like silk organza. There are other steps in between that are shown in the video.
