Haute Couture vs. Ready-to-Wear: What Sets Them Apart

Haute couture, as defined by The Business of Fashion, is the highest level of handcrafted fashion, tailored to perfection. Unlike ready-to-wear fashion, which is mass-produced, haute couture garments are custom-made for individual clients. This exclusivity and attention to detail make haute couture the epitome of luxury in the fashion world.

My first day in Paris was nothing short of spectacular. I had the privilege of working backstage at the Gamatista Vali show, an experience that left me in awe of the creativity and precision that goes into haute couture. The pictures from the event on my Instagram captured the magic.

The following day, I was part of the team working behind the scenes at the Armani Privé show. The elegance and sophistication that emanated from the runway were breathtaking. My Instagram feed was once again filled with snapshots of this unforgettable experience.

The Art of Hair Styling with ICON Products

As a hairstylist, I take immense pride in using top-quality products to create stunning looks. Throughout the week, I relied on ICON's range of products, including QG foam, Done hairspray, Cream wax, and Reformer for long-lasting curls. To enhance definition, I used ANTIDOTE on wet hair and OIL DRY INDIA spray for a glossy finish. For that extra volume, POWDER was my go-to product.

On the 5th of July, I spent the entire day working on VIP clients for the FENDI event. These are individuals who annually spend a substantial sum on FENDI products, earning them the privilege of attending exclusive shows and events organized by the brand. It was a day of luxury and glamour, ensuring that each client looked and felt their best.

My gastronomic journey in Paris was as remarkable as the fashion shows. I indulged in authentic French cuisine, with a particular fondness for tatar with salad. It was a culinary delight that perfectly complemented the high fashion experience.

Amman Accommodation: Kempinski Hotel

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting such a nice hotel to be part of a tour. Kempinski Hotel was in a great location in Amman’s central business district, the service was outstanding, and the rooms were very comfortable with the biggest and best pillows I’ve ever had. The bathroom towels were gigantic and just as luxurious as the fluffy robe. I couldn’t have wished for a more comfortable bed for the 13 hour sleep I had on my first evening - after 30 hours without it.

Spending 15 minutes each day in the complimentary steam and sauna room in the Spa helped me recover from jet lag. The buffet breakfast and dinners were also delicious and full of Jordanian food. Hotel breakfast and dinner buffets are included in the Globus tour. There are local restaurants within walking distance to the hotel if you want to eat out. You will love having 5 Star accommodation at affordable prices on your Escape by Globus tours.

The Return Journey

On the 8th of July, I had the honor of photographing one of FENDI's top clients, Amanda Tacker, and her husband. This was the icing on the cake, a moment that encapsulated the opulence and glamour of the Paris Haute Couture week.

As my Paris adventure came to a close, I boarded a flight back to Venice. However, my journey took an unexpected turn when my luggage was misplaced upon arrival. Undeterred, I attended a lavish party in Cavalino and spent a serene day by the sea before retrieving my luggage and returning to Slovenia.In conclusion, the Paris Haute Couture shows are not just fashion events; they are a celebration of artistry, craftsmanship, and luxury. From working behind the scenes to pampering VIP clients, this journey was a dream come true. It was an experience that will forever be etched in my memory, and I look forward to the next Paris Haute Couture extravaganza with great anticipation.
