PARIS FALL COUTURE 2009

I am aware that COUTURE is not for us mere mortals but for those of rarefied finances and hopefully beyond the pales taste and aesthetics.........................I was extremely taken by The New York Times review by Cathy Horyn "Haute couture is really about taste and aesthetic vision. .............HAUTE couture isn’t as much about having money as it is about having the conviction that taste actually matters. Because if you don’t have money in fashion — and, at the moment, many designers do not — it helps to have something else to offer." And offer they do !!!!!
this is unto itself when it comes to the unparalleled workmanship---the intricacies of design and nuance ................................one truly cannot equate ready to wear with COUTURE....................they are distinctly apart..............................Nevertheless, I was extremely taken by LACROIX--DIOR--GAULTIER--and CHANEL .....it makes one look in awe of the artistry that is involved with the creation of such wondrous creations.................................http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/F2009CTR-JPGAULTI
