According to Footwearnews, Chanel Massaro’s fashion house workshop receives shoe designs a month before its upcoming release from Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld and shoe designer Brand Lawrence Dakad. Work on the creation of a finished model starts from the end, that is, with the molding of a mold for the heel. Then a shoe drawing is created on the pads without a top pattern.

The next step - the leather is soaked in water and wrapped around the pads. Parts come together to form part of the upper. The sock should be the strongest, and the leather to be distributed on the sides should be thinner. Because of this, there is a need for different leather thicknesses. Therefore, one of the masters thinned the details of the leather, making it a special knife on a piece of thick glass. Another master cut pieces of leather into belts for the golden “Egyptian sandals” of the collection, as was indicated in the comments on sketches of models received from the brand’s headquarters. These details were subsequently tightly covered with cotton to strengthen the leather.

Jewelery for semi-precious stone heels and enamel paintings were created by two other Chanel workshops - Goossens jewelers and Desrue button craftsmen. They worked on the creation of metal plating, which was attached to the structure created by Massaro. In general, the Massaro workshop developed about 8 shoe models for the December Chanel show.

Starting from 2002 of the year once a year, in December, the creative director of the French fashion house Chanel Karl Lagerfeld presents a collection devoted to artistic crafts - CHANEL's Métiers d'art.
Each such show is a vivid demonstration of a continuous creative dialogue between designers and craftsmen, which supports the fashion house, and which allows you to create unique things and preserve the brand’s artistic, technical and cultural heritage. The house of Chanel was the first to start interacting with 1985, and then acquire the workshops and ateliers of Métiers d'art, uniting them under the Paraffection logo. Today, Paraffection brings together twenty-six art houses and manufactories. At the moment, this is the only Fashion House that fully devotes one of its Prêt-à-Porter collections to the invaluable know-how of its workshops, which help strengthen the prestige of French fashion and luxury throughout the world. The latest fashion show, Métiers d'art 2018 / 19, took place in December 2018 in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. According to the plan of Karl Lagerfeld, the collection devoted to the art of Ancient Egypt was demonstrated against the background of the Egyptian Temple of Dendur (c. 15 century BC), which is one of the exhibits of the "Egyptian Section" of the Meropolitan Museum.
