PARIS - One of the fashion calendar's biggest events, the Haute Couture week sees a selected group of designers team up with the French capital's finest craftsworkers to produce sumptuous (and eye-wateringly priced) one-off outfits. Less a catalog and more a shop window for the design talents and technical skill of the houses involved, with Alexis Mabille and Maison Martin Margiela recently announced as the latest members of the elite club. The big news this year? Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci has declared that he will not be showing a collection this time around, despite having gained critical plaudits for his previous haute couture work.
