Haute Couture- which literally means “high fashion”, is the highest form of expression in the craft of designing and constructing clothing. Presented in specific bi-annual fashion weeks in Paris, the shows draw the world’s stylish elite and boast some of the highest international media coverage of the fashion calendar. Everything is glitz and glam… put simply, haute couture fashion weeks are spectacles.

From runway presentations to the endless dinners, cocktails and parties, attendees always put on just as much of a show as the couture House’s, with an equal addition of formality to their dress. High fashion reigns the streets, and it’s commonplace to see style stars like Olivia Palermo or Chiara Ferrigrini strolling around in pieces from the most coveted and historic labels.

Australian fashion blogger Nicole Warne in Chanel. Kind of 90’s, kind of quirky, completely cool. I like her round sunglasses.

Blogger and style star Chiara Ferrigrini in Dior. You’d think this was a simple outfit, but the details of the tailoring and quality of fabrics show it’s worth as Dior couture. Chiara looks great!
