    I love Chanel... but who doesn't!

    I only have knowledge of Claire Shaeffer and have read her materials. She is current and easy to follow. Sadly, I think couture methods is fading away in this current time. It is more of a quantity world rather than quality. It is also a 'get it done' sewing hobby rather than achieving self satisfaction through perfection. However, I feel there will always be couture techniques used by some. My favorite techniques - the use of any hand work with needle and thread on anything!

    I also love a lot of Chanel, but having been to the Dior exhibition (London) I think I found my favourite there

    Oo, how was the Dior exhibit? Do you have any photos you could post? We would love to see...

      I'm late to the party, here, but Madeleine Vionnet was a master of fabric manipulation and certainly
      at the inception of modern elegance.

    Elsa Schiaparelli, Dior, Givenchy, Iris van Herpen and Balenciaga.

    Chanel, Dior, Fortuny. It’s impossible to choose just one.

    Although I'm not a big fan of Stella McCartney's designs, her dress for Megan Markle's wedding is stunning ^_^
    Versace is the most adorable fashion house. Their designs are gorgeous, yet classy. Even with those crazy prints and unordinary style, they look extremely feminine.
