Prêt-a-porter es un término francés que indica que la pieza de vestir está “ready to wear”, como se llama en inglés, y que en su momento, cuando la alta moda de Balmain, Courréges, Chanel y Dior, copaban las pasarelas de la Alta Moda en París, Pierre Cardin revolucionó la moda con su concepto, que significaba diseñar ropa práctica, no en forma masiva, sino en tallas pensadas a la media de las mujeres, muy bien diseñadas, con telas de primera y hechas a mano, tal como en la Alta Costura, pero accesibles a muchas mujeres, rompiendo con los esquemas de la alta costura, dándole lugar a una moda más accesible para la mujer que trabaja, que necesita estar elegante sin gastar miles de Dólares en una prenda de vestir. 444 more words
