"Couture is not an art, but a craft. That is to say, its starting point and aim is something concrete. The body of a woman, is not an abstract idea, is of intrinsic value in itself. A dress is not architecture, it's a house: it is not made to be contemplated but to be lived in, and the woman who lives in it must feel herself beautiful and right in it. Everything else is just craziness."
-Yves Saint Laurent (1936 - 2008)
