Fashion lawmakers present several colorful collections in each season, and this time we offer an overview of extravagant images and unconditional trends that high fashion 2019-2020 offers, as well as a lot of creative ideas in the photo shows of Haute Couture.
As a rule, in the fall-winter season, fashion houses present three collections to the court of experts and regular customers:
- Pre-fall - A small preliminary collection outlining the main trends of the season;
- Pret-a-porter - main collection;
- Haute couture - Exclusive haute couture images.
It is about such bright, spectacular, incredibly luxurious, and sometimes even shocking design ideas that will be discussed in this material.
History of Haute Couture
The very concept of haute couture appeared in the middle of the 19th century. He is associated with the name of the famous couturier Charles Frederick Worth, who introduced the division of collections according to seasonality.
Today on the fashionable Olympus there are many brands that successfully present their collections on world catwalks. But, not every one of them can create Haute Couture fashion, because in 2019-2020 the rules introduced by the Paris High Fashion Syndicate back in 1868 also apply. So, for the release of collections of the couture segment, the fashion house must meet a number of requirements:
- located in Paris;
- have the appropriate certificate;
- have more than 20 employees;
- represent at least 50 images in the collection.
Although, in fairness, it is worth noting that among trendsetters there are those who violate centuries-old traditions. So, Versace and Valentino do not belong to Parisian brands, but also represent collections of the haute couture segment, which the whole world recognizes (well, except perhaps in the fashion houses of Paris).
