Paper Flowers for Chanel

Check out this incredible paper-installation for Chanel's 2009 Spring/Summer Haute Couture show. AMAZING or what?

According to the Chanel website, the installation was made up of 7000 handmade paper flowers, using 4000 square metres of paper, and took a total of 4800 hours of work to assemble. I guess Chanel has a pretty good budget for these things! ;)

The models also wore stunning paper-flower headpieces...

Via Beautiful Paper blog. Thanks to my dear friend, props-maker extraordinaire Annette Ringrose for the tip-off!

ps) How weird is Karl Lagerfeld? Super talented, super weird.

  2. Oh thanks ladies for your comments :)

    Yes. amazing... beautiful... STUNNING! I can only agree :)


  3. Wow, tahnsk fro pretty! And yes...Karl is so weird. : )

  4. Paper! Someone light a match.

  5. Thanks for sharing. The flowers are beautiful. However, I'm interested in how Chanel plans to re-use them. Big budgets are great, but Big Impact is better. Would love to see how these beauties impact someone who wasn't at the show...

  6. I can't believe that I have only just discovered your fantastic blog. My first look today. I am a big fan of paper flowers and made hundreds of them myself for my mexican inspired wedding. These ones at Chanel really take it to another level.

  7. The paper flowers are just amazing . Look like they are wearing Tractor Home products on their heads . Just fantastic .
