Haute Couture - By Appointment Only

Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Emilio Pucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin, Karl Lagarfeld, Oscar de la Renta, Madame Bertin (for Marie Antionette).....all by appointment only.

Pixel Mode created this beautifully detailed sewing set for September 2014's Arcade.  I've seen in blogged in some many inspiring ways.  I thought I'd do something different.  I am also excited to use the Lisa Chairs from August's FAMESHED.

Marie Antionette's Dressmaker
"The regulation of court dress was a legacy of Louis XIV's plan to bring the aristocracy into line and the guiding rule was "Persons of Quality must now become Persons of Taste".  For presentation at court, women had to wear le grand habit de cour (the grand habit). Full court dress consisted of a heavily boned bodice with short sleeves, a full skirt over a large hoop, and a long train. This ensemble was all made of the same fabric, typically silk or satin brocade. 

A tailleur de corps (always male) made the whale-boned bodice and train, a courturiere made the skirt, and a marchand de mode (like Rose Bertin) provided the trimmings, lace and adornments for the ensemble.
