A Look at Fall 2014 Couture

Dior Couture Fall 2014

Earlier this month, the fashion flock descended upon The City of Lights for the bi-annual haute couture shows. Movie starts like Emma Watson intensified the city’s luminescence as they took their places in exalted front row. The less crowded schedule and relaxed atmosphere of couture week is a welcomed sharp divergence from frenzied ready-to-wear.

The clothes shown at the haute couture shows take hundreds of man hours to create. Embroidery painstakingly applied, artfully sewn seams that can only be the reward of a long patience—these are the things that make couture special. With such attention to detail, it is only right that each presentation of these clothes be at a reduced pace, allowing the spectator to rightfully digest each sumptuous frock feast.
