Ever wondered what goes into making one of those over-the-top haute couture runway looks? This video, filmed at the Dior Haute Couture Atelier, offers a peek. They're so precise and the space is so bright it's like watching b-roll from network news coverage of a pharmaceutical company.

The video (via Digg, uploaded to YouTube by christianzhel) isn't new—posted in 2013, it follows the making of a dress from spring/summer 2011. And the music is perhaps a tad over-the-top. But it's pretty wild watching a whole team of people devote what must be many hours of painstaking labor to a single item of clothing. And who knew that was how you create pleats?
