Have you ever wondered, what the difference between Couture and Prêt-à-Porter is ? What marks one from the other ?
A couture dress for example is usually a special commission and made-to-measure. It is adjusted more than once to obtain a perfect fit and executed to perfection in nice quality fabrics. It is an investment and will last longer.
This is a time consuming process and the price will reflect that. But you will end up with a unique dress, that is one-of-a-kind and will make you feel quite special.
If you get a dress like that made on order, the price will depend on what kind of dress it is, the cut, details, fabric and the way it is executed. Personally, I always prefer to agree on a price-range in advance.
Prêt-à-Porter on the other hand is of course cheaper, because it is standard-sized and produced on a larger scale in Asia or eastern Europe for example, where the quality and salery expenses are much lower.
Except for the major fashion houses, Prêt-à-Porter is usually more affordable, but you will not stand out.
