OMG! Latex haute couture!

We always have to smile a little bit when a latex designer calls himself/herself a latex haute couturier. 

​Does it the title 'Latex haute couture designer' actually exist? Very simple ... no!

Why not?

Haute couture is literally 'higher sewing art'. And you will probably understand that most latex clothing is glued. And the technique is certainly not 'haut', because it is two slices of latex on each other. And everyone does it in the same way, beginners and advanced latex lovers, home workers and latex brands.

In France only a small group of fashion designers can call themselves haute couturier. For this, the designer in question must be appointed by the Chambre Syndicale de La Couture. It only awards the title haute couturier when the designer meets the following conditions:

  • Clothing must be made in their own workshops.
  • At least twelve people must work in the workshops.
  • Twice a year their collection has to be presented on the catwalk, with at least 50 different, new garments per model.
  • There must be a special area where clothes can be shown to regular customers.

The recognized haute couturiers of this moment are:

  • Adeline André
  • Giorgio Armani
  • Coco Chanel
  • Christian Dior
  • Jean-Paul Gaultier
  • Givenchy
  • Anne Valérie Hash
  • Iris van Herpen
  • Maison Martin Margiela
  • Elie Saab
  • Valentino Garavani
  • Viktor & Rolf
  • Mart Visser

OMG! So we are just all the same?!

Yes baby! There is no such thing as latex haute couture, so do not be fooled by latex brands that pretend to be or selling expensive latex clothing, overprice it and call it 'latex haute couture' . How cheap or expensive latex clothing is ... the technique is the same, nothing 'haute' to it. ☺
