Fashion word Haute Couture. In French haute (Oat) is "high, elegant", couture(kootour) is "sewing". I always see this word in magazine, and i just know that Haute Couture is a high class clothes until i see the Elle Magazine publishes the Dior Haute Couture. So i go Wiki and find the true definition.... Oh man.. Haute Couture is the King of the King in Fashion.
"Haute couture refers to the designing, creating, and selling exclusive custom-made, high fashion women's clothes.
Haute couture clothing usually takes from 100 to 400 hours to make one dress, costing from $26,000 to over $100,000. A tailored suit starts at $16,000, an evening gown at $60,000.
Today only 2,000 women in the world buy couture clothes; 60% are American. Only 200 are regular customers. Often, designers will loan clothes to movie stars or other public figures for publicity."(Fashion.bg)
