Because couture is one of a kind.

Famed fashion houses Dior and Burberry have just released new short fashion films showing how couture is created.

The videos have been posted to Instagram and offer a behind-the-scenes look at the artistry and craftsmanship behind some of their couture creations.

Dior’s clip shows how the pattern for this one-off gown worn by Emma Watson, was created using a mixture of hand-painting and embroidery.
