Couture Style Guide: What Makes a Dress Couture?

Dresses have always been regarded as the ultimate symbol of femininity. Women throughout history have adorned fabulous gowns and gorgeous dresses, giving them their reputation as the garment of a true lady. Dresses today come in a variety of styles, colors, and designs, allowing women to put together a limitless amount of great looks! Some are long and flowing, making for an air of elegance, while others are short and tight, making for a sexier look, and there are countless dresses that fall somewhere in between. While many dresses are casual-wear these days, there are plenty of designers who still believe a dress should be formal. The right dress can provide you with the perfect outfit for your special event.

Couture is one word you’re likely to hear when looking to rent high-end dresses. Couture dresses and gowns are all the rage because they offer uniquely beautiful designs and looks. In order to be classified as couture, a dress must come from a designer and meet some special criteria. These couture criteria include:

  • Designing custom dresses for clients. There are countless designers making dresses, but not all of them make custom dresses. Couture refers to the unique design of a dress, being either custom made to fit the client’s preferences or being a one-of-a-kind dress from a beloved designer.
  • Utilizing a Parisian workshop, or atelier . In order to truly be couture, designers must maintain a workshop in Paris with at least 15 full-time employees working with them.
  • Showing a collection of at least 35 looks to the Paris press twice a year. In order to maintain a couture title, designers must design and present a collection for each and every season.

Renting couture dresses is a great way to feel like a celebrity for your big event. We have a great collection of over 400 styles of couture dresses to rent and purchase.
