Over a million flowers covered the mansion in Paris where Raf Simons staged his couture debut for Christian Dior this month, and the process took several days — plus a team of florists, truck drivers, and set designers — to pull off. Workers started cutting and packaging the flowers three days before the show, then began a two-day installation process that took all weekend.

A look at how the walls of flowers were built in the video below.
