Haute Couture means exactly what it is... 'high sewing'. Each garment is made like a piece art... intoducing new forms and details to really evoke that breathtaking feeling. Essentially custom made for various high roller buyers, the general public however can always be inspired by Haute Couture. I felt like pictures of the entire garment from head to toe did not do the piece justice, so I filtered through the details gallery from the F/W 2012/13 shows.
I found layers upon layers of ruffles in the Giambattista Valli show, automatons in Jean Paul Gaultier and a simple clutch of a Chanel bag showing the close-up of tweed... those were the photos that stayed vivid in my mind.
