Paris Fashion Week – Haute Couture

Christian Dior

Paris Fashion Week is arguably THE fashion week.  The week where the most successful and innovative designers show their haute couture fashions.  Haute couture traditionally refers to hand constructed designs of the highest quality fabrics and materials.  There’s an extreme eye towards detail and often an extreme perspective, as well.  You won’t find these fashions on the 2nd floor of Neiman Marcus (but go on up to 6, and you’ll enter a world of fantasy!).

Most designers let their haute couture looks influence their ready-to-wear designs, so it will be interesting to see what they show in their runway collections in March.  Until then, we can only dream!
