Haute Couture, winter 2019/2020: Digital innovation no substitute for couture workshops


To celebrate its 10th anniversary, French fashion house Julien Fournié is unveiling its sponsors, Apple and Dassault Systems. But that's not to suggest for a moment that the digital world can supplant the extraordinary work of the couture workshops, producing unique piece after unique piece. Alexandre Vauthier takes a similar view. As for Jean Paul Gaultier, he's breaking with the past, and choosing to stay away from fur. But then again, the only constant with Gaultier is change.
