Ain't nobody messing wit' my clique: Haute Couture

Here's a fun fact: only 2% of the population of the world can actually afford haute couture. That's probably because the going rate of a piece from a couture collection can go from $25 000 into the millions.
They are more so a work of art showcased on a body than actual clothing, and are one-of-a kind, hand cut, hand sewed, hand beaded, with the most precise of hands, in the best atelier's in the world, using materials that can cost as more than a car.

Just as hard as it is to own couture, you better believe it's as difficult to get on the list of names, now totalling sixteen, to become a recognized couturier. The exclusivity that lies within haute couture is the kind that we as humans are constantly struggling for, and rarely achieving.
