The New Couturier: Giambattista Valli

20 Dec

For my French final, I had to make a presentation about something important to France. My group worked on French fashion week and I focused on Couture. It’s such a complex organization to be included in the elite Couture status. A quick rundown: must be elected by the small, exclusive Chambre de Syndicale de Haute Couture and be a guest member for five years before becoming a permanent member. Valli, whose first couture show was in the Fall, has been fast tracked and yesterday became an official member of the Chambre. Since the decline of the economy many designers have had to abandon their couturier status — it’s complex, time consuming, intricate, wildly expensive and not very profitable.

Get ready for lots more couture!
