  • Examines the relationship between Haute Couture and Pret-a-porter collections
  • Conversations with dozens of renowned fashion photographers and designers including Colin MsDowell, Vivienne Westwood, and Jackie Nickerson

Haute couture often dazzles us with its precision, craftsmanship and the extravaganza inherent in it. Clothing items are made out of proportion; unique materials are used and everything is hand-finished. But, the Prêt-à-porter collections of today comply with the classic principles of Haute Couture. The items shown on the catwalk should theoretically be wearable, but often in reality this is not entirely the case. Haute-à-Porter examines the relationship between Haute Couture and prêt-à-porter collections and shows the evolution in their relationship over the past 25 years.

Includes conversations with Angelo Flaccavento, Antonio Mancinelli, Alexander Fury, Colin McDowell, Farida Khelfa, Irene Silvagni, Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni, Nicole Phelps, Pierre Hardy, Robin Schulié, Rick Owens, Stephen Jones, Thom Browne, Tim Blanks, Vivienne Westwood, Yohji Yamamoto, Zandra Rhodes, Viktor & Rolf and many more Photographs and artworks by Ali Mahdavi, Anthony Maule, Brian Griffin, Daniel Jackson, Erik Madigan Heck, Fabien Baron, François Berthoud, Giampaolo Sgura, Jackie Nickerson, Kevin Tachman, Luigi & Iango, Michal Pudelka, Mikael Jansson, Miles Aldridge, Peter Lindbergh, Rene Habermacher, Txema Yeste, Sebastian Kim, Sheila Metzner and others.

Text in English and Dutch.
