I believe Felipe Oliveira Baptista is a guest member of the Federation, so yes, officially couture.

you are only allowed to call your stuff couture if you stick to strict rules. i doubt he does. so, not couture.

I like how simple it is but nothing couture... Simple colours and simple dresses.

^ couture only means made by hand
hand-sewn , etc
it is custom fit..
made to suit only the wearer

a lot more accessible but nonetheless breathtaking and innovative. j'adore felipe

btw,felipe is a designer...no matter the medium,his work genuinely blurs the line. he is neither HC nor PAP just felipe the designer. he is a craftsman in ever sense. and who the devil cares anyway? did we not already go through that premise when anne-valerie decided to start showing her PAP during HC and Yohji. i hate silly rules and barriers.

and no there are NO LAWS if you've been invited.

We do discuss this every season. Sorry Felipe! :p

I wrote "officially couture" up there when what I should have written was an official and invited part of couture week as sanctioned by the Federation.

I think...that is.

The federation invites certain designers to show during the couture presentations in order to keep the events more lively as well as promote younger talents who don't exactly have the means to produce full on couture. The fact that it's "not couture" isn't so much the point.


This collection is a huge leap forward for him, I had been a major fan before but in recent collections began to doubt is abilities. Who knew he could drape so beautifully?!

Everyone's toning down this season. The colour's very loud but I can't see anyone being uncomfortable wearing this.
