Video: A beginners’ guide to Haute Couture and a sneak preview of Chanel

If I could be any fashion journalist, The Telegraph‘s Hilary Alexander with her fashion knowledge and experience would put her in the top 3 of my list. If you need convincing, just watch this video as she gives the viewer a beginners’ guide to what is Haute Couture and why it is so special. She describes it as a “laboratory of dreams” where the clothes are on a different planet to fast fashion. We also get a preview of Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Haute Couture collection (which just showed in Paris a mere hour or so ago) and learn a little about new boy Josephus Thimister.
