Perhaps it was on display? I have seen Dior HC on display in a department store in Taiwan....
one guess : it was fake???

i honestly think Couture's never been on a display....
Couture is made sur mesure.....

honestly i'm pretty surprised by all those stories....
all this coverage of the couture's people and world.....
well it's just two articles and it's couture week.....

BerlinRocks,

No, sorry, they weren't fakes. A few dresses were on display as part of an exhibit.

Lafayette in Paris had a Dior mariée dress on a window some years ago... someone posted the pic on a thread around here (it was fw05 hc and the dress was originally worn by lily cole)

The Versace store on 5th Avenue in New York had the gown Carrie wore in Sex & the City on display for about two weeks I believe...that was a beautiful site!

Wow...I have no idea about htis. It does make sense as to advoid some classless customer who just happen to be loaded and buying into couture and made them look cheap!!

Luving this tread!! But I do believe a lot of the things being written are mildly true!! They just make a good story!

Yeah that's nice...or else so many tacky people would buy up. It's nice to sell the clothes to people who actually love it as an art form and appreciate it.

$280,000 is pretty outrageous...I guess someone buys at those prices though...yikes.

That's like the minimum cost of a house in a really upscale neighborhood where I'm from...LOL

Well, looking back at the photos, I can't say that absolutely no one fits that description ...

^No, there's no specific "haute couture" for men. The closest is really Savile Row. But Thom Browne is doing a lot in the couture price range...but I doubt he's sold any of it.

Question...
Are there dress codes at couture shows? I was reading WWD and I noticed that at the Chanel show, I believe, a women in the front was wearing jeans.
I mean, don't you want to dress a bit more..dressy?
