    High fashion in equations



    Tailored out of exquisite materials and artful designed patterns, high fashion garments constitute the most sophisticated kind of clothes. The unique manufactured pieces, only affordable for a small circle of clientele, are not only envelopes for the human body, but artworks, visualizing cultural aspects, tendencies and trends.
