High fashion, or haute couture, is like the acropolis of the fashion world: majestic, influential and a kind of ruin, but in any case an irresistible symbol. Its biggest drawback is that many people no longer know what haute couture is, often confusing it with luxury ready-to-wear. So what exactly is haute couture?

It is a label of quality, agreed beliefs, Parisian traditions, fashion for the elite, a high price range, big-name clients and fashion artists (not so fashion designers) and a media platform. SECRET WORLD OF HAUTE COUTURE explains all this, covering in detail the haute couture week in Paris.

“High fashion should be fun and silly and almost impossible to wear.” Christian Lacroix

Fashion designer Roberta Einer will make an introduction to the film screenings.
