A rare glimpse of Karl Lagerfeld at work


Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld has designed special ballet costumes to mark the centenary of the legendary dance group Ballets Russes.

English National Ballet's stars Agnes Oaks and Thomas Edur will wear the exclusive creations for the performance at Sadler's Wells theatre in London.

BBC cameras were at Chanel in Paris for the final fitting, where Karl Lagerfeld explained his designs.
