Art or Fashion?

Couture fashion is the most expensive fashion in the fashion industry. Its a small select group that use the finest materials and skills, but with its flamboyant style, extreme price tags is Couture fashion better placed in the art world?

The designs are over the top but no-one can deny how beautiful and inspiring they are. Givenchy pushes the barriers of Haute Couture by designing body jewellery, that not only any rocker would be proud to wear, but is 100% stunning! We love the Givenchy collection especially. At the end of the day Couture fashion pieces are, in their own right, art, but they also have the place in fashion, firmly at the top. Its brings us joy just looking at beautiful pictures of it, imagine what we would be like if we could wear it!

Style Q&A

With an overwhelming amount of responses to our tweet last week, about any styling dilemmas and question you might have, we have selected the 2 most frequently asked questions. 


So this week we were asked “Smart Casual….. What does that mean!” 
This is a term that I particular hate! its almost a double negative! It basically mean relaxed smarter wear, so I see that as denim!.


The next question was “I love fun fur but I don’t know how to wear it?” 
Wear it as a coat, Gillet (or as my boyfriend likes to say waistcoat!), scarf or even on boots. Fun Fur also goes great with Leather so layer it up, it is Winter after all!

If you have a style Q&A for next week tweet us @fashionmould or email fashionmould@gmail.com!
