In an exclusive video, Dior reveals just how delicate the design behind just one of their Haute Couture dresses really is...

Christian Dior once said: "After women, flowers are the most divine of creations. They are so delicate and charming, but they must be used carefully." From this concept, came Maria Grazia Chiuri's inspiration for her first haute couture show for the House of Dior. As the brand's reigning Artistic Director, Chiuri devoted her direction to handsewn petals across the 56-look collection, which was celebrated at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week this January. 

Now, in just over a minute, Dior's seamstresses reveal the achingly acurate detail needed to create just one dress with Chiuri's vision. In particular, watch as look 40 is designed complete with tulle, embroidery and pressed silk flowers...
