Book review- Haute Couture Ateliers: The Artisans Of Fashion!


Thanks to Meghan from The Vendome Press for sending me another gorgeous book, Haute Couture Ateliers: The Artisans of Fashion, authored by Hélène Farnault and photographed by principle photographer Alexis Lecomte.


Besides my passion for beautiful interiors, fashion is my second love so I am especially thrilled to receive this stunning book!

Haute Couture Ateliers: The Artisans of Fashion provides a rare glimpse of fashion's backstage, inhabited not only by remarkable designers but also by lace makers, weavers, textile finishers, pleaters, jewelers, feather workers, leather makers, embroiderers and many other specialized craftspeople.

In this book, you will find excellent photography along with detailed explanations that unveils the exceptional workmanship of these extraordinary artisans in the world of fashion.
