Video: The Making of Gucci’s New Bamboo

All of you frequent followers of my blog would know that Stylicious Fashionista attended Gucci’s Artisan Corner Event  and store Re-opening @ KLCC back in September right before I headed off to London Fashion Week. During the event, we got a glimpse of the artisans working on the New Bamboo. 

Here’s a video on how the New Bamboo is made, followed by the image stills after the video below.
