Couture: fashion designers or couturiers collectively

February 1, 2008


I sort of learned a new word today: couture. As I was browsing the news, I came across a J.Lo article which warranted my attention (because J.Lo is… super cool). The title of the article is “Even J.Lo’s hospital gowns have to be couture.” I had no idea what that meant, so I looked up couture on dictionary.com. I still don’t know what it means. Perhaps she needs designer gowns in the hospital??? Anyway, I bet my genius fiance can explain it to me when I see her this evening.
