Here’s the deal. I love Haute Couture week more than anything in life. I love it more than a sample sale. I love it more than a first class suite on the new Emirates Boeing 777. I love it more than a fresh-out-of-the box BIRKIN.
Watching each haute couture show allows my mind to wander into a place it’s never been to before. I always relate to Alice when she gets to wonderland. Like I am literally Alice.
Witnessing the element of surprise during each show leaves me in total awe and gives me this child-like reaction as if I just saw a magician doing a mind boggling trick.
I continue to develop a deeper appreciation for each designer especially when we get to witness their fantasy side, not just their commercial side. Haute couture week is about showcasing pure imagination and bringing us all into a different realm of fantasy.
The intricate detail and wow factor each designer brings to the table is what I look forward to the most. What’s really amazing is the idea of keeping the tradition of hand-making a garment in today’s world. It’s just so special to know that haute couture is all hand-made and that this is fashion’s ONE exception of sticking true to a tradition when fashion is all about pushing the needle forward.
You have to be a true visionary or magician or artist to create this level of high fashion and art. I’m convinced that Karl Lagerfeld is an actual magician. I literally don’t know how he does it, but I do know that Choupette has all the answers.
Here is a round up of some of my favorite Haute Couture looks!
