I was reading Stuff (news site) this morning and came across this interesting article
See How a $100k Dress is Made.
They had this first video below on Stuff, after watching it I checked out Chanel on Youtube and found a few more of their 'making' videos.
The beading is amazing, very interesting to see how they do it all. The last video here has fashion that looks very quilt like to me too. Go and have a watch and be inspired to embellish!
