What: Haute Couture?

Haute couture (pronounced to kotyr approximately) is French and literally means “high sewing” or “high klänningsmakeri”. In fashion circles, however, the importance of another, even if it includes the previous explanations also. Haute couture is namely the custom-made and exclusive clothing made from the best materials and with special care for the details.

Haute couture displays are often very spectacular and is surrounded by a large amount of luxury and style. The suit itself is however a rather unprofitable business for the designer in question as it often costs more to make the garment than it can charge. If they are sold at all, that is. The brand’s glamorous status can not be valued in monetary terms. And of course that is why they continue to produce these garments.

The opposite of haute couture‘s Ready to Wear and are the garments that you can actually buy in the store. They appear on the catwalk even those, but generally speaking, the somewhat more sober forms. The French term for ready to wear are ready-to-wear, as you may have heard in previous contexts.

In France, the term haute couture is protected by law and a number of requirements must be met in order to use it in connection with its brand. The French state determines the fashion houses and designers who are deemed to be approved, and they then become members of the organization Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture.

Among the fashion houses that make high fashion in 2006 you will find Christian Dior, Valentinoand Jean Paul Gaultier (pictured).
