My approach when viewing the couture shows is one of expectation tinged with childlike joy. The designers who show in Paris have been given very large to unlimited budgets and are shackled to zero traditional constraints. There are very few women in the world who will buy these creations and a few who will wear them on the premiere red carpets of the world. Those blessed beauties aside the couture shows are for showing what you are capable of...you better bring it.
