Givenchy Haute Couture: Behind the Scenes

by jennine on April 29, 2011

Of all the couture houses Givenchy is the one that continually produces the most awe-inspiring collections in my eyes at least. We all saw Cate Blanchette wear Givenchy to the Oscars, which was one of my favorites, but other than that, I hadn’t seen more of the collection in action. Upon browsing through the Givenchy Facebook Fan Page, I noticed they just posted the behind the scenes to the haute couture presentation yesterday. Beautiful images to highlight the Japanese inspired collection, which  according to Style.com one outfit took 2,000 hours of cutting and 4,000 sewing. That puts a new spin on Malcolm Gladwell’s 3,000 hour rule to becoming an expert.

Happy Friday!

Oh my God, the craftsmanship is phenomenal! I guess it justifies the astronomical couture prices!

Cate’s dress destroyed me - as do all these images! Truly remarkable. It’s so incredible to see actual artistry occurring in fashion, as opposed to pure derivations of “trends” and copying of ideas.

That dress will forever be known as the Cate Blanchett dress. It took great courage for her to wear it and she gave it life in a way. I never would go for a dress like that but she made me love it. The embellishment and architecture-such a work of art.

I thought the Givenchy dress (pictured above) that Cate Blanchett wore at the 2011 Oscars was ah-mazing. So unique.
