Quote:
Haute Couture – it is fashion at its most exclusive and most expensive – custom clothing for an elite clientele. It is also said to be a dying art, irrelevant to anyone who isn’t fabulously wealthy and ‘of a certain age’. With less than 2000 clients worldwide haute couture houses know that their future is dependent on the cultivation of a new generation of customers. It isn’t easy, however, to find young women with the means and the need for a one of a kind dress with a five-figure price tag. Events like Le Bal Des Debutantes, held every year since 1991 at the Hotel de Crillon in Paris, bring together Haute Couture houses with potential customers of tomorrow. Fashion File cameras were there this year to witness the ‘high society debuts’ of 24 well-born young ladies and, of course, check out what they were wearing.

What do you guys think?

Also to make things intresting what would you wear, say, you were forced to this event by your "rich parents"?

It seemed that the girls really liked it ... potential couture customers? Who knows!
But if you're gonna be the belle of the ball in couture ... I mean ..what type of coming out/presentation to society can beat this?

Ok .. if I recall it correctly, I think they showed couture pieces from '03 ... though, because its the Couture Dance at the Crillon, I'll wear something this season ...
How about Gaultier Spring '04

The only thing is that I need accesories ...and gloves, maybe?
(If I ignore the huge fact that I'm a guy, hence no boobs and broad shoulders)
What wud you wear, Igni?

Hmm.. I think I'd go with this silky Viktor & Rolf number because it seems very robe-y and I like pants more (also to stand out because everyone will be in gowns).

(I think you don't have to be in couture i.e. there was a girl in Zang Toi )

I knew you'd choose McQueen. (PS It's not cheating. There was a girl in Vivienne Westwood and Zang Toi-both not members of the Haute Couture).

I'd always wanted to have a coming out party actually...
Now I'll just have to find myself the perfect gown!

Thanks for posting this Igni

I love that Alexis? Saperstein was the only one who said she would not be into wearing HC in the future- sorry to sound but her mom is the #! buyer of HC in the world, and I think she is hideously tacky There was a spread of their home not too long ago Alexis seems like such a cutie though-

I would prob do it, b/c it IS for charity

And want to steal your red Valentino i<3chanel

supposedly, some of the new crillon debs in november will be: Rumer Willis, Danielle Riley Keough, Georgiana Marriott (of the Marriott hotels family), Princess Alexandra von Ochsenzwick and Abigail Cooley (Abigail is said to be a niece of the richest man in Germany).
