The Process of Haute Couture
The world of haute couture is a protected one, a closely guarded secret. Standards and practices must be adhered to, with designs meticulously handcrafted from the finest materials using time-consuming and hand executed techniques. When clients step into Pallas Couture, they step into this very rare and special world. The atelier’s visionary artisans are master couturiers, creating gowns that define and transcend trends rather than follow them.
Impeccable craftsmanship is the essence of couture and commences well before the fabric is cut. It begins with a vision, transforming this into a three-dimensional work of art that is the Pallas Couture gown. Every feminine creation is crafted exclusively to the client’s body, from the bust to the hips, creating a shape that reflects their sculpted silhouette. The seamstresses work with millimeters because the cuts in haute couture techniques require utmost precision, ultimately helping to accentuate the body.
Fabrics are draped and pinned to the bodice, experimenting with twists and folds to achieve particular desired affects and shapes. Attention to detail is unparalleled with every sequin, bead, embellishment and embroidery delicately placed and sewn with masterful precision and technique. The end result of each exquisite creation is a fantasy – A dream that celebrates the true magic that is haute couture.
