The presentation started with a review of the definition of *couture* in the US, as well as an interesting contrast with the definition used in France.
She brought in collectors' dolls with couture-styled garments. And she circulated tons of samples showing various couture techniques.
Because of the size of this topic, Martina did not teach us the actual techniques but she certainly motivated their use, showing the lovely results.
Thanks so much, Martin. It left us breathless!
