The Autumn/Winter 2010 Paris Haute Couture collections may have ended, but stay tuned for new posts exploring stories behind this unique creative world, what the clients are wearing and innovative craftsman shaping the future of couture as it continues to evolve in the 21st Century.
The hope is that The Polyglot will eventually serve as an online repository of information for those interested in the craft of couture, the culture that surrounds it and a specific way of thinking about the process of design. Couture is not simply about an extravagant fashion show or the few women who wear and appreciate such clothes. Within any discipline one needs examples of the best that can be achieved within a given field; whether from a creative or technical level. In a sense that is couture’s purpose within the field of fashion; to set high standards.
