Hands-folded flowers, invisible seams, a pleated bodice,  I love these couture touches that have a gown unusual and set it in to the arena of a thing of beauty. Since a custom gown could be 85-90% hand crafted (yes, that is correct!), the hrs it requires to accomplish one are lengthy and sophisticated. Regardless, the entire process is rewarding for the designer and dressmakers involved. Whenever we focus on ‘couture’ we usually imagine European ateliers where the amount of fabrication and fit are come to the greatest level. The particulars on these gowns pictured  above and here are works of art, the particulars of every component performed with great skill.
