Service Description

Welcome to the Masterpiece Study Series, a series of exclusive individual sessions brought to you by the Couture Pattern Museum. Each session offers a unique opportunity to examine an authentic piece from a renowned designer's collection. In this special session, we journey back to 1973 to explore an haute couture suit from the house of Andre Courreges, a visionary designer and former student of the legendary Cristóbal Balenciaga. This suit is a remarkable example of Courreges' iconic work during this period, showcasing his experimental ways of construction, even in what might appear as a simple ensemble at first glance. During this hands-on experience, you'll gain insight into the intricate stitches, the innovative and thoughtful construction, and the exquisite materials that define this masterpiece. With gloves provided (and required for wear), you'll achieve a deeper understanding of the craftsmanship that went into this exceptional ensemble. By examining haute couture up close, you'll acquire invaluable insights into the art and craft of haute couture fashion design. You'll learn about the avant-garde techniques and materials used by Courreges, gaining a deeper appreciation for the skill, creativity, and innovation that goes into creating these masterpieces. We believe that by studying and learning from the masters, this experience will enrich and inform your own haute couture education, inspiring and guiding your own creative journey.
