HAUTE-A-PORTER: HAUTE-COUTURE IN READY-TO-WEAR FASHION. Filep Motwary. Modemuseum, Hasselt, 2016. Organized by Uitgeverij Lannoo, Tielt, Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 208 pp. 28 x 23 cm. ISBN 9789401429139 In English.
Publisher's description: Haute couture often dazzles us with its precision, craftsmanship and the extravaganza inherent in it. Clothing items are made out of proportion; unique materials are used and everything is hand-finished. But, the Pret-a-porter collections of today comply with the classic principles of Haute Couture. The items shown on the catwalk should theoretically be wearable, but often in reality this is not entirely the case. Haute-a-Porter examines the relationship between Haute Couture and pret-a-porter collections and shows the evolution in their relationship over the past 25 years.
