This assignment was kind of interesting. The teachers went over several different genres in fashion and gave examples even of each genre and a history and description of each. For the assignment, each student was given a genre to do research on and then style an outfit for. For mine, I got Haute Couture.

For the first part of the assignment, we were told to write a paragraph about our selected genre. Below is what I did for this part with links to where I found the info.

Haute Couture originates from Paris, meaning high sewing, high dressmaking or high fashion. Haute Couture items are hand crafted from start to finish using very high quality, expensive and often bold or unusual fabrics with extreme attention to detail by experienced sewers. The time and money that goes into each item often makes the phrase 'money has no value' relevant. It's often created for specific clients since it's also often form fitting needing the clients exact measurements to craft it.

For the next part, we had to style an outfit showing off the genre and write about why we chose each piece. So I'll put what I wrote for mine, and then the picture and style card below. *Smiles*

I chose this dress, because I saw it by chance browsing on the marketplace, and the color, pattern, and back really made me go "oooh" and I was unable to get it out of my head after that. I thought it would work well for the assignment since it has the intricate pattern and is form fitting and is very elegant and beautiful.
I went simple on the shoes because I didn't want them to distract from the dress very much, and thought that the cute little maryjane pumps were perfect, subtle and elegant, and not too extravagant.
The jewelry i thought would make  a nice touch, also not overly extravagant, but very elegant and pretty, I was able to play with the colors til I found a suitable color combo to add to the dress, but not take away from it.
For the makeup, I saw the eyeshadow at a sale and had to get it, and thought it dressed up and brought my face into the dress too.
The nails I thought would be a good match also with the blue and silver deco.
I chose an updo bun to show off the delicate cut on the back of the dress.
