The End of Haute Couture? Maybe not…

The End of Haute Couture? Maybe not...

above photo Irina Lazareanu by Benjamin Kanarek in Christian Lacroix Haute Couture

….  Here is a counter argument to my last post about “The End of Haute Couture” from my Fashion and Beauty Director, Frédérique Renaut, who worked in several Haute Couture Houses.

I am quoting Glenda Bailey, editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar offering a compelling economic argument for the institution’s importance:

“When it comes to couture, in addition to the craftsmanship, which we are in danger of losing, we have to think of the sheer amount of jobs it sustains. People say we should be saving, but actually we should encourage the people who have the means to spend. Too many people think it’s frivolous, but couture generates huge amounts of income.”

I have worked many years in several Parisian Fashion Houses (Louis Féraud, Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy who was designed by Alexander McQueen at the time) and I have to say that Couture is not dead…

The End of “Haute Couture?”

The End of Haute Couture?

above photo Irina Lazareanu by Benjamin Kanarek in Christian Lacroix Haute Couture

In the good old days, the “Haute Couture” shows were the most anticipated of all of the collections. It was akin to the Formula 1 of the fashion world. It is unique to Paris and all of the greatest designers the likes of Hubert de Givenchy, Christian Dior, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Jean-Louis Scherrer, Pierre Cardin, Emanuel Ungaro, Christian Lacroix, Louis Féraud and others would show the epitome of what they were striving for. These were prototypes of sorts and unique pieces of art that were considered the barometer of where fashion was going in the future. These architects of fabric and exotic materials would go to great lengths to establish their identity through their designs.

The press would come in hordes to get a view of these collections, to be the first to show them in their glossy fashion magazines. Shoots would be set up immediately after the collections and given to those magazines with the greatest influence on the public. Only the finest of glossies were given these collections to shoot and in order of priority. It was usually Vogue that was in place number “1″ and the rest would have to wait their turn. The constant bickering between Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar was always omnipresent. You could sense an Arctic chill in the air when the major editors would appear in the same room with each other…

RUNWAY: Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2010 Menswear Collection

styled by Kirby Marzec, Managing Editor - Comments

RUNWAY: Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2010 Menswear Collection Stefano Pilati’s YSL Fall 2010 menswear collection was designed with the feminine side in mind. Overalls, jumpsuits, fringe, opera gloves and a whole lot of grey flannel were certainly highlights of the collection, but I’m totally curious to see who will wear this collection.

VIDEO: Karl Lagerfelds First Television Appearence at Age 21

It’s weird to think of Karl Lagerfeld as a young designer but here he is in 1955 at the age of 21 taking 2nd place in a coat design competition. Who won first? None other than the late great Yves Saint Laurent!!! I think it’s so funny how nervous he looks accepting his prize ( and how unibrowed!?! ). Thank god he got some swagger and some tweezers.

Yves Saint Laurent Recycles Old Fabrics, Makes New Pieces

Yves Saint Laurent Recycles Old Fabrics, Makes New Pieces

Everyone loves a good vintage piece from Yves Saint Laurent, but let’s face it, who can really afford to splurge on those pieces these days? As part II of their environmentally conscious capsule collection, YSL is taking unused fabrics from the vintage archives to create new pieces in more modern cuts. In hopes to promote the sustainable side of fashion, these pieces are sold at the YSL flagship boutiques in Paris, London and New York. But we’re still curious, how much are these refurbished babies going to set us back?
