Exclusive: Glass goes behind the scenes at the Dior Atelier

GLASS exclusively reveals the behind the scenes action at the famed fashion house Dior, providing an insight into what goes on in the Dior Haute Couture atelier, seen here for the first time in the UK. Be transported back to the early years of Dior’s couture collections, where Monsieur Dior and his expert tailleurs (tailors) adhered to a set of very precise characteristics – which are maintained to the present day.

The precision tailoring that Dior is so renowned for is the result of hours, days and even weeks of painstaking work from the expert life-long tailors employed by Dior. Together they create some of the most exquisite one-of-a-kind garments in the world. Here, a tailor shows us how a simple change in a type of satin can elevate a women’s tuxedo-style jacket.
