Site Rating: 5 out of 10 stars

"The Secret World Of Haute Couture" is a BBC documentary about the private aspect of expensive clothes sales. In the doco, they go into the closets of several rich women to sneak a peek at their most treasured haute couture pieces that cost them tens of thousands of dollars each.

Yes, I am going to go there and tick off a few designers – some of the clothes were ghastly. Hideous pieces that look like costumes from a horror show. They were clearly sold on name alone and expensive materials, not aesthetic design.

Having written that and probably gotten myself banned from every fashion show in the near future *raspberry* some of the items were lovely. The Chanel pieces in particular were nice.

My favorite of the women interviewed is the former southern model (pictured at the top of the page) who now resides on 5th avenue in New York. She was honest and funny and I like that.

The most hilarious part of the documentary is the secretive attitude of designers like Valentino and Lagerfeld, like they were selling crack and not couture. I'm just teasing.

Designers are often eccentric, therefore allowances are made. Furthermore, they were protecting their clientele’s privacy and that’s understandable. While, I'm not fond of the proposed prices, I did enjoy this documentary.
