Haute Couture {French for “high-sewing”} was born In the 1950s, with each garment created for a specific client. A couture garment is made to order and is usually made from high-quality, expensive fabric, sewn with extreme attention to detail and finish, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques. Look and fit take priority over the cost of materials and the time it takes to make, thus being a usual request of the rich and famous.

Fashion week 2013 has just come and gone, a breathless wave, here and gone about as fast as each model storms the runway. Trends for next season have been established, noted, and put into production. Designers anxiously await critic reviews and of course — the number one stamp of approval — celebrities sporting their designs on red carpets around the world. I was inspired by all of the glamour and glitz to write a post, a small glimpse into the world of fashion week. Enjoy all of the sequins, beading, makeup and beautiful whimsy of couture designs, models and  fashion!
