Anne Fontaine's Michigan Avenue boutique is known for those beautiful pleated, embroidered and ruffled black and white shirts, lit at night like carefully crafted morsels of origami. Objects of beauty. Since Anne's first collection in 1993, the brand has grown to encompass outerwear, accessories, knits, home fragrance and handbags. This year, celebrating twenty years, Anne Fontaine is showing the world how the beauty of her namesake brand is created. This video, among the first slated to come out this year shows the labor detail of embroidery.
