Haute Couture Art

The art form that is haute couture is decadence at it’s finest.  Cloaking the human body as expressed by this art genre provides a hedonistic pleasure and fuels the imagination in a way that no other artistic expression can. 

The following images are a fun, explorative romp of the art genre that is haute couture with a thread of a story weaved among the fashion images.  Enjoy!

In my opinion there really isn’t anything as gorgeous as the female form draped in opulent, rich, plush fur……I know, I know…..it’s not a politically correct thing to say these days but damn!  It’s how I feel.  Sorry to those who don’t agree.

In closing I would like to thank my blog viewers for their loyalty.  I hope you have enjoyed this posting, I know that highlighting the fashion industry in my blog is a very different approach for me to take while reviewing contemporary art as my subject but I honestly feel that haute couture is indeed very much contemporary art and an art that we wear every day.  I hope the story I weaved between these most of note worthy designer fashions provided an inspiring imaginative visceral adventure for you.

I would also like to dedicate this posting of “Haute Couture Art” to a most grand lady of the fashion world…now retired model Ingmar Lamy.
