Demi Couture

Yesterday Demi Couture from Jan Taminiau opened Amsterdam Fashion week. The name itself tells you that the dress only needs 1 fitting before you can dance the night away in them. Normally a couture piece needs 3 or more fittings.

I am not sure whether I liked it or not. I mean Jan's style is impeccable, but, I don't really understand the necessarily of making another semi (demi) couture line next to his Haute Couture line. To my opinion the collection looked as if Jan drew the sketches in a hurry. It showed on the runway, that the garments needed a little bit more attention. This is only my opinion; so don't hang me for it.
