The Spring 2019 Couture show ended not so long ago and I would be lying if I didn’t admit to you that a few of the pieces I saw gracing runways didn’t take my breath away.
First, let’s understand what exactly haute couture is…
according to BOF
To the normal person this means really high end fashion that carries a really high price. It is garments made out of top notch fabrics that are embellished to the heavens by designers that belong to the group of exclusive haute couture design houses. The garments are tailored and fitted to their specific clients. Sometimes they are one of a kind or very few are made, usually all by hand. If you look at Project Runway, the couture challenge always has the wackiest designs or garments that are most out there and look a lot like they should be on display on pedestals in the museum because they are works of art.
Now that we have that all covered, here are a few of my favorite pieces that walked the runways in Paris in this year’s haute couture showing.
