The straps are embroidered by Lesage. 1500 black Swarovski diamond stones in a silver shade and in different sizes and shapes such as triangles, squares, cushions, circles and spirals are applied to a layer of lace and organdy. They are then embroidered and completely covered by black silk tulle, which has been frayed around the edges.

Deniz Gamze Erguven, director of “Mustang” nominated for Best Foreign Film, wearing CHANEL Haute Couture.

The dress in woven off-white tweed embellished with 4 rows of fringes with a top embroidered with floral bouquets made out of fabric petals, crystal beads, metal bi-cones and tubes, cork and wooden beads.


The dress required 320 hours of work and 25 people to complete. 20 seamstresses and 120 hours of work to assemble the dress in Paris.

The tweed and fringing is handcrafted by Lesage. The tweed is woven by hand using golden ribbons of PVC at a rate of approximately 80 cm to 1 meter per day. One weaver spent 50 hours creating the tweed for this dress. The top of the dress is embroidered and consists of a covering of individual bouquets of fabric flowers, finished with pearl pistils. Each flower is made out of individually hand-cut fabric petals that are hand-sewn into shape on silk tulle, stretched on an embroidery frame. Each flower is then encrusted with pistils made from pearls of glass and wood and handcrafted sequins that have been delicately painted and folded.
These various bouquets are then sewn onto the tulle dress until it is completely covered.
