Stumbling upon Chanel

It was like fate, flicking through the channels, I find Chanel. I’ve hadn’t heard of Signe Chanel, a 2005 documentary follows the Chanel Haute Couture Collection Fall 04/5 from conception to Catwalk. But I sat there for half an hour mesmerised. I never really think too much about the work that goes behind each and every garment, so this was a fabulous insight into what goes on behind the scenes at one of the world’s finest ateliers. Not to mention Mr Lagerfeld. I’m so in awe of him it’s ridiculous. I hope I never meet him as I would be totally lost for words and I would fall at his feet (probably)!
