From Karl Lagerfeld's first sketches, through the daily grind of the workshop, and into the hands of the client, this documentary follows the incredible journey of an haute couture collection, taking the viewer behind the scenes of this legendary atelier on the Rue Cambon.

A world of supremely skilled artisans, of the premier Atelier, models, customers, Monsieur Massaro the bootmaker, embroiders from the house of Lesage and the imitable Queen of Braid, Madame Pouzieux.

A rare and intmate depiction of this hidden world, this elusive and mysterious place where ancient craft, human comedy and utter secrecy converge, and all at the very moment this mythical house conceives its fantasy.
