I want to get away from couture just being done for a picture or for a single moment on the red carpet. I want to try and convince women that couture can be worn in the day and that there’s a reality and relevance there, because that’s what Mr. Christian Dior wanted.
Nobody criticizes The Rock. Nobody criticizes Randy Couture when he goes over and did ‘Expendables 3’ or anybody who’s a crossover.
I saw a photo of a Christian Lacroix couture dress when I was in my teens and decided right then that that’s how I wanted to look on my wedding day. In my mind, that’s what angels looked like.
The ultimate art form of fashion is couture. I completely geek out when it comes to couture. It shows fashion as it used to be. I don’t know how many people can actually afford the clothes, but in a way, that’s beside the point.
I am still in love with couture because it is just two months from drawing pad to runway so everything on the catwalk is hot from the oven.
Lesley Manville comes at ‘funny’ from a totally different direction in ‘Phantom Thread,’ using snootiness and froideur. The effect of her performance – as the difficult manager of her difficult brother’s couture dress business – stems in part from the chill she puts into her line readings.
For me, couture is like 35 mm. film. It’s so important we school ourselves to see real quality. In a couture garment, as in a 35 mm. film, you really feel the life of the people who made it. In high-street fashion, it’s different. There’s no risk.
I hate the terminology of ‘costume’ because my clothes are not costumes at all. I think they’re high fashion, avant-garde, and more couture, definitely, and yes, some of my pieces are not particularly wearable, but I wouldn’t say they’re costumes, I’d say they’re more couture.
Don’t be afraid to mix things up by pairing a military-style jacket with a velvet skirt, vintage with modern, off-the-rack with couture, formal with casual.
The sneaker comes from sports, but it’s couture now. It’s not made in Asia: it’s made in my little village in Italy. I can customize everything. I use silk and diamonds and crystals. I think my sneakers have a lot of good vibrations.
When something’s made in the smallest volume – as a one-off couture piece – or in large quantities, deep care is critical to determine authentic, successful design and, ultimately, manufacture.
I am very happy to design haute couture. It’s a love story between couture and me.
Yves Saint Laurent
The detail that goes into couture stuff is insane. Everything is handmade – every sequin, every double stitch.

Dior Couture is like art – they are the art pieces of a fashion house. Each piece is unique and made by hand.
The Gucci woman can be the equestrian woman, the woman in the suit, the woman in the flowy bohemian dress, or the couture woman.
I did that Dior Couture 60th anniversary show in July. It took so long to get ready, I think I would have rather been watching.
It really is the very top of the fashion world; nothing comes above haute couture. But not any old designer can create something magical and call it haute couture; the term is strictly protected for a very special few.
Daphne Guinness, who makes couture seem wearable, is an icon who influences what I wear.
Fashion is so mass-produced now; I hope there will come a refocus on how people see couture. And I would also hope for a new focus on the craft.
Some couture collections have everything including the kitchen sink! Everything gets thrown on to make it look expensive. I find it grotesque when clothes hit you in the face and there’s no room for fault. But I don’t expect to turn things around all by myself. I’m not a saint.
Back in the day, I was a Royce Gracie fan and a fan of Tank Abbott. It’s always the different-looking guys that you want to root for. Then there were guys like Mark Coleman and Randy Couture, so for me to get in there and fight against guys like that is pretty cool.
‘Mad Fashion’ follows the everyday workings of me and my workshop, where we make fashion, costumes, props, and couture!
When I first got Yves Saint Laurent Couture, I didn’t know how to take off a cape. I would ask Katoucha and Dalma – the real divas of the runway – ‘Can you show me?’ I’ve never been afraid to ask for help.
I’ve heard that I could be facing Randy Couture. That would a great.
Mirko Cro Cop
I don’t believe in naming clients to get press. I hated it when I was a couture client. If the dresses don’t sell themselves, there is something wrong.
I love cashmere. For casual, I like Juicy Couture. I love the beading in Badgley Mischka. I like Dolce & Gabbana. There’s such a lot to choose from.
It must be said that it is challenging to balance uncompromising artistic integrity with commercial requirements, but I’ve also come to learn that couture clients are adventurous and particularly unpredictable in their taste.
I feel like Randy Couture has helped build the history in this sport.
I love couture, but the other side of me loves the street, and I think the mix of these two can create something new.
You can tell when someone is driven by labels. If something is couture, they think it’s important and wear it and sometimes make a terrible fashion mistake. People are shocked that I know so little about designers.
The fashion I’ve acquired over the years is so sacred to me – from costumes to couture, high fashion to punk wear I’ve collected from my secret international hot spots. I keep everything in an enormous archive in Hollywood.
I speak from a nerd’s perspective because I’ve been watching anime since I was a kid. I grew up on ‘Speed Racer’ and ‘Star Blazers’ and ‘Battle of the Planets,’ and those were some of my first A) cartoons and B) introduction to Japanese couture before I even knew they were Japanese.
I live in Juicy Couture sweats and a pair of Uggs.
I love fashion. I love couture. I’m going to erect a shelf in my bedroom with an art light to be the spot for the shoes of the month. I want them to serve another purpose.
Being outspoken was important… I helped make the UFC what it is today with Chuck Liddell, Royce Gracie, and Randy Couture. Some said I was outspoken in a bad way, but I was just trying to educate the fans what being a UFC fighter is all about.
Couture has copied my things for years, in addition to countless other costume designers, claiming theirs were the original ideas. It’s all part of the business, unfortunately.
Model S has, really, the ready-to-wear elements. Gen 3 has the opportunity to be more couture.
Franz von Holzhausen
Like in great painting and architecture, in couture, to make clothes you must eliminate, eliminate, eliminate to obtain the true sense of a line. You see, the more you add, the more you load on, the more it’s mad. You must try to have just the silhouette, which is an intelligence in clothes.
Hubert de Givenchy
It’s an honor to fight someone like Randy Couture.
I always used to love couture because it was more theatrical than the runways. The runways always felt more like part of the machine.
On 9/11, that morning, I was in a Christian Dior Couture appointment at the Hotel Pierre.
Andre Leon Talley
It’s couture. Everything has to be done by hand. That is most important. That is the crucial element. Without it, that is not couture anymore.
There are people who, if they see something in couture that they perceive as ready-to-wear, they’re in shock.
The big difference between couture and ready-to-wear is not design. It is the fabrics, the handwork, and the fittings. The act of creation is the same.
Yves Saint Laurent
I love the idea of couture and its emphasis on creation. There’s where I made my name – in design – and there’s where I’d like to stay.

After I started training with some of the best in the world and fighting in the UFC, I started really wanting fights with guys I used to idolize and watch on TV. Guys like Tito Ortiz and Randy Couture.
Haute couture is like an orchestra, for which only Balenciaga is the conductor. The rest of us are just musicians, following the directions he gives us.
My idea is to have two bases. I keep my family in Rio, and when I have a fight scheduled, I will come to Vegas to train here at Xtreme Couture, which I consider the best place for a MMA fighter to be.
I don’t really buy designer stuff. I have a few nice things, but I don’t really have the occasion to wear couture too often.
When I was 18, my mum gave me all the clothes she’d had made at the famous haute couture fashion label, House of Worth, in Paris. Of course, I eventually trashed them all.
I’ve worn dresses from all different price ranges, and the thing that couture dresses have in common is that the fit is amazing.
To be a couture designer is not only to create dresses but to adapt your line to your private customers. It is why couture is expensive. You are like a doctor.
Hubert de Givenchy
I love fashion. I love couture. I’m going to erect a shelf in my bedroom with an art light to be the spot for the shoes of the month.
I was on the couch watching Tim Sylvia beat Ricco Rodriguez, Randy Couture beat Tim Sylvia, and Josh Barnett fight in PRIDE.
