I love this photo of Christian Dior's Fall/Winter 2010. It's amazing to me how each Couturier is required to have 35 pieces, and 15 full time workers to make these shows happen.
According to The Independent, there are between 200 and 2000 couture clients in the world, and the president of Chanel, Bruno Pavlosky has seen a 30% increase in new clients all over the world.
It's hard to believe, with all that is happening in the world, but normally couture clients aren't the movie stars, they are the ones who move quietly. They may create an impact, but you would never know.
