Whilepeople have been keen in fashion for thousands of years, the fashion industrywe know today did not start taking shape until 1850. After hundreds of years offashions, two things occurred simultaneously to shape the industry known ashaute couture: the discovery of the stitch sewing machine, by Isaac Singer, andthe concurrent fame of a dress designer called Charles Frederick Worth.
Couture has been symptomatic of the victory ofcostume and fashion. It symbolized the combination of fashion—the modern entitythat fuses novelty and synergy with cultural and personal needs—and costume—thetalent of dress designing, stitching, and crafts constituent to attire andaccessories.
Established in the trial of modernism, inventionin the mid of the nineteenth century in Paris, with a wide patronage nurturedby the House of Worth, but yet dependent upon the immense support of EmpressEugénie. Couture has sustained as the modern balance between the attires asexquisite aggregate and the sprouting notions of fashion as a trend.
The couture house is primarily a fusion of twoparts, one dedicated dressmaking (flou), the other about the tailoring(tailleur) of suits and coats. Talented workers in particular area practice thearts appropriate to the area. Accessories and embellishments are incorporated incrementallyas designed decoration, often from sources out of the couture house. Nonetheless,with regard to the unadorned garments, the modern couture house is entirely anautonomous workplace of dedicated ateliers. Surprisingly, given the elegant sitesof most couture houses, the generation of the garments occurs in the maisonsparticulars of the house, thus under the regular monitoring of thedesigner along with as an intimate association with the vendeuses. Depending upon the designer, thedesign method might start either with drafts or with a muslin or draped or toileand cut.
The couture's offering of grandeur in design andtechnique is still a compelling force, one even more capable when much otherquality has withered away. It still manifests a discipline of classicimagination, inexplicable to cost, with the theory of being the fashion mostcognizant of its valued clients. It is, as it began, a dream of quality in anage of industry and its succession. The couture strives to provide us with anunmatched most beautiful clothing that can be envisioned and created in anytime.
