  • Title: WotW: Haute Couture
  • Artist: xl Cyanide Candy lx
  • Description: 'Women of the World' is my collection of avatars representing one culture from each continent.
    Wk 6: EUROPE (France).
    The tradition of haute couture (French for "high sewing" or "high dressmaking") dates back to the mid-1800s, influenced by the high fashion in France. Couture garments are exclusive, custom-fitted, high quality pieces - often hand-stictched . Today, haute couture is reserved for labels who meet the set standards.
    Inspired by Chanel's 2010 Spring collection.

  • @PortugueseMenina: Where's the fun in that? ^^ Gaia offers a lot of items so that we can all be creative with our avatars. I'd rather see what you can put together yourself. n___n
    @Anonymhonest: The white stripe is for colour balance on the avatar and also to imitate the powdered face look that was popular in France back then. : )

  • I did a brief Google search to see the collection, and I honestly think that your avy is more amazing than the collection itself (maybe I'm just a sucker for digital fashion?). At any rate, its very lovely. Very Spring-y colors, excellent layering work... 5/5
