Watch: Inside Haute Couture

Bonjour mes petits pois!

As many of you already know I was in Paris last week for the couture shows. Couture week occurs just twice a year and is always held in Paris – the city it calls home.

Couture shows are important to any fashionista, whether they can afford to wear it or not – $$$ – because it’s when fashion houses first send out the trends that will trickle down to RTW and eventually to the high street.

Each piece is one of a kind, so will definitely not find it’s way to the shop floor. That’s why celebrities and their stylists will often be found on the front row, keeping an eye out for the exquisite designs they’ll be wearing to the major award shows later in the year.
