Vlora&Kaltrina’s spring-summer 2022 Haute Couture collection, sometimes it amounts to 700-plus hours!
By definition, haute couture is handmade, from start to finish.
The labor-intensive process is hidden in the details, and to the untrained eye, all there is to see is exquisite runway plastered with detailed embroidery, fancy embellishments, and expertise in textile manipulation. But what we rarely think about is the time that goes into it.
These made-to-measure designer items are akin to art, and many belong in a museum (some, in fact, do). For Vlora&Kaltrina’s spring-summer 2022 Haute Couture collection, sometimes it amounts to 700-plus hours. That’s for one look, specifically.
