HAUTE COUTURE

by RAFAEL ALVAREZ /EIRA




ON TOUR » HAUTE COUTURE
 

 


 

 

"Haute Couture"  french for "high sewing" or "high dressmaking"; refers to the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing. Haute couture is made upon the order of a specific customer, and it is usually made with  high-quality and expensive fabrics, that are sewn with extreme attention to details. Always  time-consuming work with hand-executed techniques.

HAUTE COUTURE is a performance that  explores concepts and techniques of "Haute Couture" and in which the body becomes a surface, a canvas and a landscape. It's about dressing and undressing the body and the skin, creating illusionary effects of visibility/invisibility of the body itself and playing with the idea of the body as an object.
