From June 6 to 9 in New York City, Bloomgindales hosted Gucci’s ‘Artisans Corner,’ bringing in artisans to show how its products are made. Although the secrets of the trade are unveiled, the beautiful products made by these skilled artisans would be hard to replicate without years of practice.

The luxurious masterclasses brought the atelier to the people of NYC to show the making of handbags, scarves and add custom details like embroidery and monograms to items. This kind of demonstration gives Gucci customers an appreciation for the work that goes in to making each beautifully designed piece. As luxury blog ‘Luxo’ points out, this seems to be a popular move for high-end fashion houses; this month, Hermès hosted a free ‘Festival des Métiers’ in London with the same purpose.
