"I think what I often see is that people are frightened about fashion. Because it scares them or makes them feel insecure, so they just put it down. On the whole people that may say the mean things about our world I think that’s usually because they feel, in some ways, excluded or, you know, not a part of ‘the cool group’ so as a result they just mock it."

irkajavasdream: Hey, I love your blog; been flollowing u forever. A cup questions. Just wondering where can I find the most h.c. Videos? Do they take awhile to come out? Where can I find out how many h.c. shows there were in Paris for 2014? Three days? Your fav Asian h.c? I want to see he from all over the world as well. Any suggestions? Videos of shows? Stills? If a line is too small for a show, do they showcase their works? How can I find them? Lastly, how can I find h.c. Designers who just graduated? Thx!

Just wondering where can I find the most h.c. Videos?

Youtube, you can find anything from the actual show to backstage and even atelier ‘know-how’ videos.

Do they take awhile to come out?

The couture shows are presented twice a year; the spring collections are presented in January and the fall collections are presented during July.

Where can I find out how many h.c. shows there were in Paris for 2014? 

You can find them in NowFashion or in the FTS. I think there were more than 20 collections presented.

Three days?

If you mean that couture week just lasts three days, then yes because there are a few fashion houses now that present a couture collection.

Your fav Asian h.c?

I’m not fully aware of many but I do love Guo Pei.

I want to see the collections from all over the world as well. Any suggestions?

Google

Videos of shows?

Youtube

Stills?

In NowFashion, just look under the menswear collections in the pink section as well you’ll find them, and StyleBistro.

If a line is too small for a show, do they showcase their works?

They do in most cases, like Vionnet presented 18 looks this year or Schiaparelli that presented 22. When Riccardo Tisci did the couture collections for Givenchy, he presented only 10 (masteful) looks.

How can I find them?

Either NowFashion, Style.com, StyleBistro or any Vogue website 

Lastly, how can I find h.c. Designers who just graduated?

That would be tough to find since I don’t think they go immediately into designing couture and presenting a collection. They would generally work in another atelier like Dior or Chanel and get skills that you will never learn in a couture school, and then maybe start a couture line (like Alexandre Vauthier).

Going to post this so if anyone is interested then you can read this and find out more about haute couture and the collections this season.
