Some like it Haute

Christian Dior Fall 2010 Couture

Chanel Fall 2010 Couture

Givenchy Fall 2010 Couture

Valentino Fall 2010 Couture

Aren't these collections gorgeous?
So  I was doing some research and in order to create a couture collection, or to declare a fashion house a couture house, you need to be a member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture.

these are the guidelines
  • Design made-to-order for private clients, with one or more fittings.
  • Have a workshop (atelier) in Paris that employs at least fifteen people full-time.
  • Each season (i.e., twice a year), present a collection to the Paris press, comprising at least thirty-five runs/exits with outfits for both daytime wear and evening wear.

Interesting stuff right?
