Creating Couture in the 21st Century
Comment on this
Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF
What does it mean to make couture clothing in the 21st century? The creation of garments to meet a client’s specific measurements and requirements is a costly business. It involves a high degree of skill, technical knowledge and the understanding to translate ideas and expectations into custom-fitted clothes. Yet with fashion now the subject of blockbuster exhibitions across the globe, and lively debate over the status of dressmaking as an art, public interest in couture is on the rise.
Join Desiree Koster as she discusses her career in couture with exquisite examples of garments, materials and specific sewing techniques. Her talk highlights the history of haute couture in the 19th and 20th centuries, the skills you need to know now and the opportunities for the industry in future.
Free talk with exhibition entry.
