I think it would be a good idea to define what semi-couture wants to say, to make it easier for the future posters, non?

Balenciaga S/S 2009 surely does belong here, though, the closing dresses were made using the couture technics.

afaik those dresses were made with couture fabrics, not technique

and i think Christian overly emphasized embroidery. yes, some embroidery is very impressive, not lots of embroidery does not equal couture or semi-couture.

it takes more than just sparkly embroidery to make me think 'ooooooh! special!'

high street clothes can also do tons of embroidery, yet it's not considered demi couture.

but Dolce & Gabbana have really lost their touch

They are considered Demi-Couture though, the first dress cost £65,000 and had clear pearls embellished throughout the dress.
