Do you remember what he said? I thought the article was on tFS --I remember seeing the word demi-couture a couple of times.. but I can't find it
I'm kind of rethinking what I wrote earlier, the 'definition' of the term
I posted Calvin Klein SS 09 after it. I don't think those pieces have as much work at all compared to the Balenciaga posted so far, and Theysken's/Rodarte's work.. I think their fabrics were woven by hand mostly because it lets more air pass through, with the ribbons they're using. It could be more function rather than artistry
I've seen interviews with Ralph Rucci and he says he does some couture but he calls it RTW so that they can put a lower price point on it. Seriously.
Couture pricetags often denote something near unreachable...
