The Enigma of a Chanel Jacket

No idea. No idea at all why Chanel is so mysterious and beautiful to me, but it has been so for years and years and years.

As a seamstress, fashion designer, and buyer for a couple of very good women's clothing shops when I was in my twenties, just out of college with a degree in Textiles and Clothing Design, I KNOW sewing and design and nothing makes my heart sing quite like seeing talented, passionate drapers (the ones who make the patterns out of muslin) and seamstresses at work.

Here's a short little video of the making of a black Chanel jacket. Artists at work.
