HAUTE COUTURE 

Haute Couture is a French phrase for high fashion.  Couture means dressmaking, sewing, or needlework and haute means elegant or high, so the two combined imply excellent artistry with the fashioning of garments.  The purchase of a haute couture model garment is at the top level of hand customised fashion design and clothing construction made by a couture design house.  A model haute couture garment is made specifically for the wearer’s measurements and body stance.  The made to measure exclusive clothes are virtually made by hand, carefully interlined, stay taped and fitted to perfection for each client.

 

While these terms are casually thrown around by even the most seasoned designers, there are indeed very specific meanings to the two. Read on to find the real difference between Prêt-à-Porter and Haute Couture.

 A littel story,,,

 

Haute Couture:

Every Haute Couture piece is made to measure for a single client. The client comes to the Parisian atelier for measurements and fittings. This points to the fact that every Haute Couture piece is tailored to the individual client, both in style and size.

Haute Couture fashion is deemed highest quality and highest price. While this may reign true the majority of the time, there are actually specific standards that a piece much reach to be deemed ‘Couture ’. Vogue once described Couture pieces as ‘walking pieces of art’. Indeed this is true. Haute Couture pieces are designed to be worn by a few clients, if not only one. Regardless of how exclusive a piece is, it is not Haute Couture until the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture crowns it so. Upon the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture’s approval, a fashion house is considered Haute Couture by French law. This is no easy feat, as there are strict criteria a fashion house must meet to even be considered. Firstly, a fashion house must have a workshop in Paris that employs at least fifteen full-time staff members. The fashion house must design made-to-order pieces for clients with at least one fitting, These standards ensure that Haute Couture labels deliver impeccably tailored pieces that will be an exact and perfect fit for the client. Understandably, there are only fifteen Haute Couture studios in Paris today, including Chanel and Dior.

How many collections come out in a year!!

Haute Couture:

As such, this level of quality means high prices and high-end customers.

Haute Couture houses create a collection every summer and winter season. These collections often set the stage for future fashion trends within the Prêt-à-Porter collections, as these collections often take inspiration from high fashion…

Haute Couture:Haute Couture houses are committed to present collections twice a year of at least 35 pieces, both day and evening wear. These collections are presented every 6 months, half a year in advance. For example, the summer collection of an Haute Couture house will be presented in Paris in January, while the Winter collection will be presented in July. Haute Couture shows are artistic spectacles. With elaborate sets and invite-only guest lists, these shows are as exclusive as the Haute Couture pieces themselves.
