Christian Dior Fall 2008 Couture

While many boutiques and brands refer to themselves and their products as 'couture', actual classification of couture garments and fashion houses is much more in-depth than fashion lovers may assume. Typically, haute couture is made-to-measure and of the finest materials by the most skilled seamstresses and tailors. In order for fashion houses to be honored with the title of haute couture, it must first be inspected by the Chambre de commerce et d'industrie de Paris in Paris, France. Some fashion houses that currently hold the title of haute couture are Christian Dior, Givenchy, Chanel, Eli Saab, Valentino etc. Here are some of my personal favorites.
