French haute couture has produced more than just an extraordinary art of fashion and clothing. It was also produced unparalleled craftsmanship in the small professional trades supplying a wide variety of pieces that are combined into the final presentation. From embroidery to lacemaking, from costume jewellery to haberdashery, the weaver, the hatmaker, the plumassier, the pleater or the creator of "nacre" have for generations been the silent portrait of the history of couture and fashion. This book has turned the spotlight onto the army of men and women working in the shadows.
