Maison Martin Margiela, Spring/Summer 2014-2015 Artisanal.Not quite your typical couture dress, right?
Haute Couture season is over and before you know it, Fashion Week has commenced in New York. But I’d like to look back and see what we can all take away from the shows. One thing that has cemented in my mind is that no longer should couture simply be regarded as an elite manifestation of craftsmanship. It is already full of overwhelming designs and ostentatious use of material. Couture is tiny, on the top of the fashion hierarchy, and mostly pointless to many people who don’t have any form of fashion interest (and these people in many cases think more logically than most of the writers reviewing such Parisian collections).
