The Secret World of Haute Couture12:30 AM
I've often wondered what was so "special" about a garment to set a price tag of up to $100,000. After seeing all of the hours upon hours of exhausting HAND work (these garments are primarily sewn by hand, not machine), I can definitely understand. Also, another thing that puzzled me is when these garments come down the catwalk, I've thought to myself, "Who would wear that"?! I saw these very elegant and sophisticated women sitting front row at John Galliano... If you have ever seen his very dramatic work, you would understand my perplexity. One of the club members was asked this very questions and stated that they take aspects from the garment and have it constructed and customized for them (i.e. a little less sleeve, lower the waist, drop the hemline, etc...).
