Couture Week returns to Paris this week with a four-day program that promises lots of artistic, fabulous fashion.

The legendary houses of Chanel, Dior, Schiaparelli and Giorgio Armani Privé are all ready to showcase new designs. Meanwhile, Balenciaga has announced it will open a dedicated couture store on July 6 — the same day as the runway show that will take place at the brand’s original 1937 couture studio near the Champs Elysee. In a press statement, Balenciaga CEO Cédric Charbit said he wanted to demystify the “very closed universe” of handmade haute couture and provide a “gateway to couture” for younger generations, who can see exclusive pieces up close.

How the most expensive clothes in the world are made
