Only few can afford, many others can dream but all can take influence from the age old tradition of haute couture. Chanel showed this week in Paris a romantic mix of pastels and silver in satin, tweed, lace and tulle. I predict more satin come ready to wear shows next month. Below some of the facts on the exquisite details that go into a couture dress.
