My paper Chanel cuff.
Couture is pricey. If you've ever wondered why, you need to watch this video about the Chanel Maisons d'Art from the Paris-Shanghai series. With every miniscule golden stitch, every hand-trimmed feather and every gorgeously rusted paillette, you can almost hear the retail cost racking up.
But who says you can't enjoy a little luxury on a budget? With a little patience, a few bits of ribbon, paper and a pair of scissors, I recreated Chanel's F/W 2009 ruffle cuffs!
