The couture fashion shows are always a highlight for us with their artisanal applications and fastidious attention to detail and material experimentation. Traditionally, they allow the designer to explore their creative fantasies and try things out that need not be commercial, freeing them from the constraints of series-type production. Each piece of couture is hand-finished and the invention and dedication to craft and material advances are breathtaking.
