Haute couture with Yiqing Yin

We’ve had Karl Lagerfeld putting Cara Delevingne in trainers, Jean-Paul Gaultier giving us saucy references to President Hollande’s alleged affair, and young designers making their elaborate mark: it’s spring/summer 2014 Haute Couture week in Paris!

As the week wraps up, designer Yiqing Yin joins us to present her latest sculptural couture collection. She also tells us what it takes for a newcomer to break into the tight-knit world of haute couture.

Meanwhile, France 24’s Jessica Michault talks us through the highlights of the week’s shows, including Chanel, Dior, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and the latest designer to receive the official "haute couture" label, Bouchra Jarrar. Finally, Jessica fills us in on how two vintage fashion houses did with their return to haute couture week: House of Schiaparelli and Vionnet.
