Couture and High Street

One of my friends was a button buyer for Le Château. She said one of the simplest ways to change the price point of a finished garment was to change the buttons.

Do you ever wonder, what really is the difference between and high fashion? Well really it’s quite simple – quality and cut, but with great retailers and designers doing diffusion lines it’s becoming harder to tell the difference. Diffusion lines might be the only way that a designer doesn’t lose out and get copied while at the same time they’re creating something for the masses. Maybe that’s why Roberto Cavalli and so many others before him, have designed for H&M. Diffusion line or be copied?
