As the fashion cognoscenti would say, there s magic in true haute couture the creations that entail thousands of hours of handwork, crafting, embellishing. In an exclusive shoot with the house of Chanel, photographer Cathleen Naundorf gained rare access to their physical archives to photograph couture gowns against theatrical backdrops. The result: a book of ethereal, cinematic photographs that capture the exquisiteness of the ensembles and the magical allure of haute couture. This is what sartorial dreams are made of. For more than two decades, Naundorf has used her expert photographic skills to pay homage to the haute couture aesthetic. Combining her experiences in travel, art, and photojournalism, Naundorf elaborately arranges each detail of her photographs, using storyboards and extensively researching the lighting, setting, backdrops, props, hairpieces, makeup, and design for every image. Each photograph is a singular vision suggesting romance, surrealism, exoticism, and above all else, fantasy.
