The Couture show is a fantasy land, an artist’s playground. It doesn’t have to make sense, rationally or economically. It is the opportunity for a designer to show off his technical skills as well as push the limits of his imagination. Like art, it follows the highest bidder philosophy and little wonder then, that the home base for this is Paris.
For a fashion expert/enthusiast, it’s an event like no other fashion week will ever be. This is where the experts come out to play, and if you are provided a peek in the haloed circle, the clothes leave you agog. They go beyond the definition of mere covering and are as magnificent on the inside as they are on the outside.
A true bespoke experience, it is fussed over by the best tailors, embroiders and seamstresses over painstaking hours to provide the highest quality. New ideas are born; ironically in this archaic tradition of couture houses being restricted by the rules of Syndicale de la Haute Couture, concepts come alive that have lasting impacts over decades.
