Julie Georgia Bernard’s fascinating documentary Handmade with Love in France celebrates the Parisian artisans who create fabulous haute-couture outfits for the likes of Dior, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent.
The film focusses on four unique French craftsmen who take us behind-the-scenes to show the process of what it takes to create the most intricate pieces of world-class clothing and accessories. After decades working for the most prestigious couturiers their workshops close down without finding anyone to take them over. What will happen to the art of fashion once they are all gone?
