Story

Atelier

Chanel S.A is a French fashion luxury house specialised in haute-couture, ready-to-wear, accessories and perfumes. The company was founded by Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, known as Coco Chanel, a stage name she had gained in her youth as a singer. Coco Chanel revolutionised the women’s fashion industry through the creation of simple clothing designs that replaced the trend at the time for opulent, overdressed and oversized clothing. She designed dress, blouses with cuts closer to the body, but more importantly, trousers and suits for women, which in the early 20th century was virtually unheard of in the context of women’s haute couture. As the company progressed, Coco Chanel started to increasingly look to the past to inspire her designs. Coco Chanel designed clothing for the company until she passed away in 1971. Karl Lagerfeld was named creative director of Chanel in 1983, continuing to perpetuate her legacy for avant-garde and elegant designs.

At the age of 17, he won first prize in a contest organised by the International Wool Secretariat for the sketch of a coat. Pierre Balmain produced the coat and also offered him a job as his assistant. In 1962, Karl Lagerfeld became the first freelancer in the modern fashion industry and has since worked with a number of iconic companies including Chloé, Fendi and Chanel. As director of Chanel in the 1980s, he integrated the interlocked Coco Chanel 'CC' monograph into the brand's products, and it rapidly became an iconic symbol of the luxury house. In 1992, he created his own fashion house, Karl Lagerfeld. As well as managing his own brand, he has continued to collaborate with luxury fashion houses.

  Chatelaine purse in electroplated nickel silver
courtesy of: Simone Handbag Museum, Seoul, South Korea
Handbag The ring on the chain of this small solid metal purse meant it could be worn dangling from a finger or attached to a chatelaine. Compared to the many ornate bags and purses produced at the time, it is a simple design and its bulbous form reflects the prevailing influence of Art Nouveau. That modern design movement of the 1890s and early 20th century favoured curvilinear and organic forms of decoration. Métier Atelier

The two met while designing for the same house in Milan in 1980 and opened a design studio together in 1982, which eventually grew to become Dolce & Gabbana. They presented their first women’s collection in Milan in 1985. They did not have enough money to hire models so their friends took on this role using personal accessories and a red bed sheet as a stage curtain. One year later, they opened their first store in Milan. The company quickly diversified its design range, designing underwear and swimming costumes from 1989. Dolce & Gabbana started to export to Japan and the United States, where they opened a store in 1990. In 1992, they presented their first men’s collection.

  Dress Clothes Land Without Collection, spring/summer 1997

“Land Without” was inspired by the portrayal of women as the scapegoat in German fairytales. Chalayan was interested in looking at fairytales because they convey a certain amount of horror. Marina Warner’s books, as well as 15th century texts on witchcraft, served as literary influences. Chalayan also focused on the tale of Rapunzel and the image of the protagonist's long blonde hair. The title of the collection is taken from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1965 film Alphaville.

Story

In October 2017, Phoebe English presented a six-year retrospective at the V&A's Fashion in Motion event. Alongside six years of archive material, where two outfits from each collection were shown, Phoebe English also re-made each outfit in a miniature size for marionettes which were displayed in the V&A’s Raphalle gallery and activated by puppeteers during the show. The puppet sized garments were a huge feat of engineering in terms of their technical and mathematical demands. Their smaller scale unfortunately did not decrease the time it took to construct the pieces.

This hand stitched oversized smocking technique was developed in order to attain a ridged, heavy and stiff surface in response to and in direct contrast with the frenetic dynamic textile surfaces Phoebe English had used in the previous collection. The aim was to develop a textile surface that would be impossible to drape, and then work through the challenge of draping it on the human form. Phoebe English wanted the pieces to have as little movement as possible when worn as a garment. The technique uses whole rolls of calico, smocking up the entire roll and then cutting up sections of the smocking and draping it, responding to these forms and how they behave whilst trying to create as little fabric waste as possible.

She later continued to work and consult for a number of companies such as Swarovski, where she worked as a jewellery designer. Naomi Filmer sees her jewellery as wearable objects that one wears around the body as opposed to accessories. She teaches at Central St Martins in London and the Haute Ecole d’Art et de Design in Geneva, Switzerland. Alexander McQueen is a British fashion house created by designer Lee Alexander McQueen CBE in 1992. McQueen completed a tailoring course at Newham College and worked as an apprentice at Anderson & Sheppard on Savile Row.

Bobby Hillson, the head of the Master's course at Central St Martins, encouraged him to join the course, from which he graduated in 1992, selling his entire graduate collection to fashion editor Isabella Blow. The fashion label quickly established itself, gaining a reputation for its eccentric shock tactics and unconventional runway shows such as the recreation of a shipwreck to present his 2003 print collection. Including his MA collection, Alexander McQueen designed a total of 36 collections for his fashion label. After he died in 2010, Sarah Burton, his design aide since 1996, was named creative director of the fashion house, a position she holds to this day.

Gaby Aghion created a line of “off the rack” haute couture clothing. This contributed to a major transformation of the fashion industry, which had until then primarily focused on made-to-measure clothing. Many other companies and designers such as Givenchy followed Chloé in creating off the rack collections. Chloé’s glamourous designs personified contemporary women and met with huge success. The luxury house has counted on the groundbreaking works of designers such as Gérard Pipart, Maxime de la Falaise, Michéle Rosier, Graziella Fontana and Karl Lagerfeld to carry on Gaby Aghion’s innovative vision. Gaby Aghion continued to run the fashion house until 1985 when the company was bought by Alfred Dunhill, now part of Richemont.

  Cord knit bra and skirt with shell detail Clothes spring/summer 1990

Azzedine Alaïa designed this cord knit bra and skirt with shell details in 1989 for his summer 1990 collection. The knitting machine, usually used for cotton, viscose or wool knit, had to be adapted to the very unusual use of natural hemp. The shells needed to be pierced one by one, and then each attached to a small piece of cord. Finally, each shell was attached as a fringe to the garments, according to M. Alaïa’s design. The overall dress took approximately 100 hours to create.

The knitting machine, usually used for cotton, viscose or wool knit, had to be adapted to the very unusual use of natural hemp. The shells needed to be pierced one by one, and then each attached to a small piece of cord. Finally, each shell was attached as a fringe to the garments, according to M. Alaïa’s design.

  Python motif wool knit dress Clothes autumn/winter 2013

This python motif wool knit dress was designed by Azzedine Alaïa for his fall 2013 collection. Several samples and prototypes had to be made before the python motif could match M. Alaïa’s request. The technique used to create the corded “python skin” effect presented a strong technical challenge. The dress took approximately 40 hours to produce.

Several samples and prototypes had to be made before the ‘’python motif’’ could match M. Alaïa’s request. The technique used to obtain a corded knit that is thick in some places and thin in others, consequently creating the corded ‘’python skin’’ effect, presented a technical challenge. As did adapting this highly technical knit to a complex pleated effect.

Dai Rees manufactures all of his pieces himself. He has never outsourced any of his work as this has always been his philosophy for his creation process and his research process. To Dai Rees, this journey is a process of discovery that he feels is frowned upon by contemporary society. Central to his work is a strong appreciation and respect for regional heritage and rural craftsmanship. He finds that his role as an artisan is to establish and capture this lost knowledge through intuitive hand gestures and tools that no longer exist. To Dai Rees, the right aesthetic is achieved when a balance between mind and hand is found. It is at this time when respect for the past is reached and contemporary barriers can be breached.

  Crown Block, Circular Crown Block, Cloche Block Hat block This is part of a collection of five hat blocks made by Owen Morse-Brown and based on shapes that were popular in the early 20th century but still remain desirable today. Depending on the complexity of a shape, a block can take two to five hours to make.
Guy Morse-Brown Hat Blocks
Wooden hat block maker
Story Métier Atelier
Story

This hat block is made in European lime wood and was initially laminated into larger blocks in order to accommodate the shape being carved. Many shapes are carved around the block meaning that first the underside is carved and shaped so that it fits comfortably against the head. It is then turned for the top shape to be completed. Common woodcarving techniques and tools are employed, such as traditional chisels, gouges, planes, spoke shaves and scrapers. However, hat block making is not simply sculpture. Blocks are often complex geometrical shapes calculated carefully before carving, and the work is completed following templates to reproduce the same shape each time. Many shapes are made in any number of head sizes and the profiles must be scaled accurately to ensure consistency across a size range.

Atelier

Owen Morse-Brown learned his craft from his father Guy, taking over the family business in 2008. He supplies milliners and hatters the world over and is recognised as one of the leading hat block makers. Wooden hat moulds, known as hat blocks, have been made by hand for hundreds of years and although many modern hats are mass produced using metal presses, a fine handmade hat is still shaped using a wooden hat block. Hats made on his blocks are seen on the catwalk at fashion shows, at royal weddings and races as well as in everyday events. In 2008, Guy was awarded an MBE for services to millinery and skills training, and in 2015 Owen was named 'Maker of the Year' by the UK Heritage Crafts Association, which supports and promotes heritage crafts as a fundamental part of our living heritage.

A symmetrical block can often be turned on a lathe with perhaps some hand work to add further shape afterwards, but an asymmetrical shape has to be carved entirely by hand from a solid block.

Maison Schiaparelli was founded in 1927 by Italian fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, who, along with her rival Coco Chanel, was one of the most prominent figures in fashion design in the inter-war period. She worked on projects with surrealists such as Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau, creating instantly iconic pieces such as her 1927 pullover with a tromp-l’oeil motif that was deemed by Vogue to be a masterpiece and became an instant bestseller in the United States. After the Second World War, however, the brand struggled, and it closed in 1954. It was bought in 2007 by the chief executive and president of Tod’s, Diego Della Valle, and in 2012, the fashion house reopened in its original location on 21 Place Vendôme in Paris. However, it was not until January 2014 that the revival of the brand was made public.

Women were weaving such lucky charms to thank Mother Nature and celebrate the fertility of the land. As this technique is almost lost, it took some time to find someone who is still able to do it. One woman based in the South of France still masters this craft.

Maison Schiaparelli was founded in 1927 by Italian fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, who, along with her rival Coco Chanel, was one of the most prominent figures in fashion design in the inter-war period. She worked on projects with surrealists such as Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau, creating instantly iconic pieces such as her 1927 pullover with a tromp-l’oeil motif that was deemed by Vogue to be a masterpiece and became an instant bestseller in the United States. After the Second World War, however, the brand struggled, and it closed in 1954. It was bought in 2007 by the chief executive and president of Tod’s, Diego Della Valle, and in 2012, the fashion house reopened in its original location on 21 Place Vendôme in Paris. However, it was not until January 2014 that the revival of the brand was made public.

  Traditional costume from Provence

Clothes This petticoat bastiande costume was created in Provence circa 1835. Provencal costumes have variations depending on their geographical and social origin (fishmonger, flower girl, artisans, or landowners known as Bastidanes). They demonstrate a passion for colour, printed cotton regionally known as “Indian", and a desire for appearance.

Piqué and boutis, which probably originated in Italy in the 15th century, were used to embellish a solid fabric and reinforce pieces that were sewn together. Of all of the historical Provencal garments, the quilted skirt or petticoat is the most characteristic.

Dai Rees manufactures all of his pieces himself. He has never outsourced any of his work as this has always been his philosophy for his creation process and his research process. To Dai Rees, this journey is a process of discovery that he feels is frowned upon by contemporary society. Central to his work is a strong appreciation and respect for regional heritage and rural craftsmanship. He finds that his role as an artisan is to establish and capture this lost knowledge through intuitive hand gestures and tools that no longer exist. To Dai Rees, the right aesthetic is achieved when a balance between mind and hand is found. It is at this time when respect for the past is reached and contemporary barriers can be breached.

  Wig for Dai Rees ensemble Wig The idea of this wig was to create something geometric. In hairdressing this geometric shape is called a “wedge” or “round graduation”. This geometric form resembles a bowl cut at the front and a bob cut at the back, joined together. The rounded shape at the front merges into a square shape at the back that forms two angles. The design was inspired by a 1970s geometric cut, and took approximately nine hours to build.

To create this piece, Angelo Seminara first had to create wefts, where fibre is sewn or stitched on a string with an elastic. Then, once the weft had been created, he built a wig-like shape on a cup and finished the top so that it looked natural, with the grain up. Finally, he cut this to give it its final look.

  Wig for Maison Schiaparelli dress Wig For Maison Schiaparelli, Angelo created something quite intricate, combining numerous techniques and detailed features in wicker. The design was intended to be very graphic at the front with a quite messy, “fluffy” area at the back, rather than being too controlled. The piece is a bit more abstract in its conception than some of the other wigs in this collection.

The wig was created with wicker. The wicker comes in three sizes. The techniques and features used range from braiding, basket weaving, roping, flowering, knotting, stars and something that Angelo Seminara calls Scooby-Doo.

  Wig for Jacquemus dress Wig To create this wig, Angelo Seminara has done something he had never done before, which was an extremely complicated and technical challenge: to have a pointed parting that develops into an angle. He wanted to create a design that combined with the other wig created for the Jacquemus collection and a historical piece from Provence. He took inspiration from this historical piece, which displays a traditional dress and hairstyle from Provence, France.

  Wig for Chanel dress Wig To accompany these intricately finished dresses designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Angelo Seminara created two chignon haircuts. A very simple and minimal design at the front contrasts with increasing volume towards the back of the wig. Three different techniques were used to create this piece made in wicker.

  WIg for Chanel dress Wig The wig created for this dress by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel is completely interwoven from start to finish. The piece flows into shape, until completely finished. Angelo Seminara wanted to create something timeless, a design evocative of a look somewhere between a chignon haircut and a hat. The front and the back merge harmoniously. The shape creates an ornamental, three-dimensional shape. The hair progresses from a very low hairstyle at the front into an almost hat-shape at the back.

  Wig for Chalayan Wig This is the base of all the hair that has been made using a mouldable fibre which comes in big rolls as a fabric. Angelo cuts them up as he wants and puts them in hot water, then shapes the fabric around the head of the model, drawing the hairlines and cutting them out, creating the final shapes.

To Artesanía Muñoz, the ideal heel is 2cm. They believe that it is necessary to avoid wearing shoes with a heel greater than 4cm, as well as those with a completely flat and rigid sole. Round or square tip shoes or boots are more anatomical than the elongated and narrow ones. It must be checked that the width of the shoe does not impede the mobility of the toes inside it. For Artesanía Muñoz the best material is leather because it allows perspiration and adapts to the shape of the foot. They advise to avoid plastic soles or other synthetic materials, which act as insulators and increase sweating.

John Galliano studied fashion design at Central St Martins and graduated in 1984. His love for the theatre and femininity are central to his creations. His first collection, entitled “Les Incroyables”, was widely acclaimed and bought in its entirety by London fashion boutique Browns. He then started his own fashion label with Amanda Harlech, a long-time collaborator. The first years of the company were not very stable and a search for financial backing took John Galliano to Paris where designer Faycal Amor invited him to set his workshop up in the Plein Sud headquarters. His debut show was in 1989 as part of Paris Fashion Week. In 1995, John Galliano was appointed head designer of the French fashion house Givenchy, but in 1996 he moved to C. Dior where he received widespread critical acclaim. He held the position until 2011. He is currently creative director at Maison Margiela, a position that he has held since 2014.

  Wig for Jacquemuse dress Wig This piece is evocative of the traditional style of hair found in the region of Provence in France but adapted into a contemporary design through a somewhat deconstructed creation. This very graphic piece, featuring two little buns, has been stitched in the parting to create an angle with the hair knotted to the side. It is better to have a hairline that is elevated when wearing a high collar to avoid having hair flying around the clothes. This is a very controlled look.
