All things haute couture.
irkajavasdream asked: Hey, I love your blog; been flollowing u forever. A cup questions. Just wondering where can I find the most h.c. Videos? Do they take awhile to come out? Where can I find out how many h.c. shows there were in Paris for 2014? Three days? Your fav Asian h.c? I want to see he from all over the world as well. Any suggestions? Videos of shows? Stills? If a line is too small for a show, do they showcase their works? How can I find them? Lastly, how can I find h.c. Designers who just graduated? Thx!
You can see every look from all the Haute Couture collections on style.com. As for videos, individual designers tend to post them on their official websites within a day or two of the show. Then they are eventually uploaded to YouTube. A great website to see images of all runway collections as they are coming down the runway is nowfashion.com. I keep that website open every day during fashion week. Some designers, whether their collections are large or small, decide to host events or exhibitions for their Haute Couture collections; sometimes to just cut the costs of hosting a full-scale runway show or even to just keep it more intimiate and low-key. Some will even just skip that part and release a lookbook (i.e. Atelier Versace for a long while until a few seasons ago). As for your last question, have a read of this page, which will hopefully give you a clear outline of which designers are ‘true couturiers’ and how there is a selection process for which fashion houses are eligible to release haute couture collections every season.
I hope this was helpful! Anyone else who can add any more details feel free to comment/inbox. :)
