First Off, The Couture Details:

Hand-rolled piping--Valentino Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2013

Back Alta Moda--Valentino Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2013

Inside Dish--It Took HOW MANY HOURS TO MAKE THAT:
According to Tim Blanks of Style.com:  
*Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli threw down a gauntlet with the ravishing Couture collection...But the duo enumerated the human cost in the show notes that sat on everyone's seats. The most extraordinary outfit in the presentation featured layer upon layer of organza, embroidered with butterflies and birds, the whole lot wrapped in a tulle cage scrolled with crepe piping. 
*According to the notes, it took 500 hours of hand-rolling to produce the piping. And that was just one of the outfits that featured the effect. One roller apparently developed carpal tunnel syndrome during the production of the collection...
*one other organza jacket and skirt took 850 hours to embroider
