As defined by the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, haute couture is “the houses or designers that create exclusive and often trend-setting fashions for women [and other consumers]; also: the fashions created”. The exclusivity of haute couture became divided during World War II by social differences and a new fashion hierarchy. Fashion was now divided into four sections based on apparel and designers: haute couture, ordinary custom-made, prêt-à-porter, and mass-produced ready-to-wear (Kawamura, 2010), although we will only examine haute couture in this paper.

It has been said that Charles Frederick Worth, who was a tailor and dressmaker, is the “father” of haute couture and created the system of luxurious dressmaking production as well as the Parisian High Fashion Syndicate (Chambre syndicate de la couture parisienne) that controls the use of the term haute couture.
