Haute couture wedding invitation


A brief biography of Haute couture

Few people know this but the phrase "haute couture" was invented during the reign of Napoleon III. This appellation is even legally protected by a 1945 French decree, updated in 1992 and made more flexible by the Ministry of Industry in 2001.

The haute couture houses have gradually structured themselves and must respect very strict conditions, such as the fact that all their creations must be done by hand in their own workshops.

Since then, generations have followed one another at the head of these great houses, which are still successful throughout the world.

“If a woman is poorly dressed, we notice her dress, but if she is impeccably dressed, then she is the one to be noticed”, this quote from the famous fashion designer Coco Chanel shows the very important avant-garde aspect of haute couture, which plays the role of precursor of tomorrow's fashion. Coco Chanel was by the way criticized when she invented the suit for women, which has become a true symbol of elegance today.
