"From Maison Chanel on rue Cambon to Jean Paul Gaultier on rue Saint-Martin, the history of French fashion is often closely tied to those of Parisian addresses. With exclusive photographs by Guillaume de Laubier and text by Désirée Sadek, Inside haute couture offers a private tour of 10 meccas of French fashion. From the splendor of VIP reception rooms to the privacy of sewing ateliers, the daily lives of the most renowned figures in haute couture are showcased alongside the skilled artisans and their stunning creations. This book is an unprecedented journey into a world often closed to the public, against a backdrop of an exceptional architectural heritage."-- Provided by publisher.

This is a beautiful book with some really lovely photographs. I was expecting to get information about the process of creating couture, but this book is really just profiles of couturiers, with some incidental information about the process and business involved. Sadly, the text is not fluidly translated and the photographs themselves are rather poorly captioned.

Close-ups of the exquisite workmanship that goes into couture garments, photographs of the skeletons who model them on parade, peeks into where the designers live. A real treat.
