Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris is one of the best street style moments of the year.
Just as in Pret-à-Porter Fashion Week, the idea is to be dressed in accordance to the fashion show. Either you are an influencer and receive the whole outfit from the brand to wear on the first row or you bet on your originality as a stylist.
In the case of Haute Couture, all this acting is even more high profile, like an open invitation to play dress up.
During this time in Paris, ballroom gowns are common on avenues and cafés. Sequined skirts are seen in ice cream shops. Intricate embroidery and high heels compete with children and nannies in parks.
But Haute Couture is not only grandiose visually and for the craftsmanship or handiwork. The numbers for the event are also very generous: 30 designers are officially registered at the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. A ball gown takes over 800 hours to be produced. During the past few years, the Haute Couture market has grown 20 to 30%. There are no more than 4,000 clients of Haute Couture in the world.
Check out the street style images we have selected for you. Get inspired by the style and details, even if you are not one of the 4,000 haute couture girl. Looking is for free.
