9781908126245: Affordable Couture


From Paris to Peoria, couture is a hot topic. Almost before a designer's runway show is finished, images of the current season's offerings are posted on the internet. Fashion magazines not only present designer clothes in fashion layouts, but also show the readers how to get the look for less. Affordable Couture is not about how to recreate the look with what are commonly referred to as knock-offs. This practical guide book will give collectors and enthusiasts a better understanding of the high end designer fashion market, specifically how and where to look for affordable couture, resale couture and high end vintage pieces.

The authors offer practical advice about key pieces every wardrobe should have, how to take care of your couture garments and an international directory of where to find couture at a discount in major cities around the world. Affordable Couture is a quick study on how to immerse oneself in the couture world and build up a fabulous collection to wear or to archive. This guide is aimed at anyone who is interested in designer fashion and fashion as art, as well as individuals who want to know and understand more about buying and collecting high quality designer and vintage pieces.
