    What's the most beautiful handwork/detail you've seen,of late?

    I really want this top from Little Red Riding Hood. Love it. Pearl beading,stitched snowflakes,a bow-tie around the neck,pinched pleats along the yoke,crest-like roping draped off the shoulder. Besides all that,I adore the fairy-tale shape and tailoring involved. :heart: :heart:

    I was watching Fashion Television a few weeks ago and they had a segment on Chanel Haute Couture. They went inside the atlier and the craft was amazing. The hand-sewn silk and chiffon and the beading, it was great. :woot: -_- Dior, too, was mind-blowing.

    That Persoons and LRR pieces are great and have amazing details for ready-to-wear. :flower:

    On Big Boutique there was a segment about Dublin-based designer Tim Ryan. His big thing is knitting and crochet.

    Ryan's creations might not be everyone's idea of a must-have garment but I thought I'd contribute his name to a thread about "detail and craft." Hearing him explain how he does it is fascinating.

    Scott, it's one of my favorite programs. In the Tim Ryan episode, I liked the shot at the end where he's sitting outside surveying the city around him all while his hands are crocheting at high speed.

    Here's a detailed photo of his work. The delicacy and intricacy are amazing.

    MMMM....that's yummy looking ;)

    I dunno why,but I simply get more excited about the close-up shots of the clothing's detail work than just the shilouette(although I adore volumes in a shilouette as well)--to me its where most of the soul is. What's even more nice is that I feel that people are truly starting to appreciate craft and paying attention to quality again rather than an overall look.

    Big Boutique is my fave too. Its by far the most intimate and interesting than the others are. Plus,I like the fact that its not just established talents they feature but also the ones that aren't so famous and well-known.

    Nice one, Lena. Speaking of this show, I loved the wet and slick look of the models.

    ignitioned32, those pics are amazing!
