Couture in your wardrobe
For the past couple of years, the word ‘couture’ is creating ripples in the world of fashion. From being heard in Fashion weeks, to being casually thrown into the names of boutiques around the corner of your street, this term has stretched into an umbrella expression. Let us break this down for you.

Couture is French for ‘sewing’.
Yes, that is all there is to it. So why spend over the top to add couture to your wardrobe, when you can find it there already.
Don’t be. Couture is high end fashion, coming from the finest of brains. But, hey, you can always make your own couture, your own fashion, from all those old dresses in your cupboard.
All you need is a pair of scissors, basic sewing knowledge and a few old dresses that you can spare. Picking the right shade and cut for your dream couture is the most important task.
Once that is done, draw a rough sketch of what you want and use a chalk to make the markings on your dress, to be snipped off later. Be careful and do a double check before you cut the fabric.
Making shrugs with an old T-shirt and pairing it with a dress that is asymmetrically cut at the seam will make you stand out for sure!
So, Let your creativity flow as you wow your friends with your new Do-It-Yourself fashion.
Psst, there’s never knowing who’s the next big Designer label!
