What the hell is "haute couture"?October 16, 2015
Haute couture...about six months ago my first thought would be repeating the word "haute" in my head trying to figure out if it was pronounced hote, hot, owt, ought, or oat. I thought haute couture was ridiculous, no one would ever wear these expensive designer pieces, what was the point of parading them on models and being looked at by buyers? I mean have you seen some of this stuff???
Personally, my favorite haute couture collections are from Jean Paul Gaultier, I just went to a great exhibition in Paris on him and he really can reach every corner of the imagination. He has fantasy, punk, sex appeal and historical influence.
