To celebrate Monique Lhuillier’s first international runway show, we tagged along to an exclusive fitting of the collection’s finale ball gown. What goes on behind the scenes just before show time? Follow along as Lhuillier and her team walk us through the process.
"It's after midnight, in the early morning hours of show day, the 3rd of July," designer Monique Lhuillier tells InStyle. "We are in our temporary atelier in the heart of Paris, the 2nd arrondissement, only 10 minutes from our show space in Place Vendôme. Our model, Nora arrives for the final fitting of the night, the floral taffeta strapless finale ball gown."
