Haute couture LATEX fashion is couture that consists of 100% latex. Beautiful creations are made with latex, but unfortunately most people have a different association with latex clothing. Namely: The sex industry and 'tacky' party clothing. Nothing is less true. Some latex-designers are creating Haute LATEX couture which is really couture and very chic!
Haute Couture means "high sewing" or "high dressmaking" or "high fashion". It is the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing. Also mentioned: high-end-fashion. In either terms, most important is the fact the clothes are constructed by hand from start to finish.

As the title says, this book is about taking a glimpse inside the famous fashion houses. It is very picture-heavy with many images of studios, workshops, designers and artisans at work, as well as the close ups of the gorgeous details that go into the garments and the shots before the fashion shows begin. The photography is splendid, of course, and every page is full of information about the haute couture design process at different fashion houses.
A friendly reader named Diana Do sent us photos of Chanel buttons she recently bought. Are they real or fake? Was her question.

But as we said in the article Authentic versus Fake Chanel, the copies are often so perfectly imitated that they can hardly be distinguished from authentic Chanel clothing and accessories.
The reader has made a beautiful necklace from one of her buttons.
