Corporate Couture

For Cubicle Chic, haute couture is something we can only dream about. This fall 2010 season, however, was more than just poofy dresses (although we looooved John Galliano’s collection for Christian Dior) and inventive design. These shows were more commercial, and we’re not surprised – couture, albeit regrettably, is a dying industry reserved for two types of women: ones who have thousands upon thousands of dollars to spare for a dress they’re likely t0 wear only once…and ones with connections. Be that as it may, the couture collections also provide inspiration for the everyday woman and the clothing lines she can afford, so we wanted to let you in on our favorite corporate-inspired looks from the collections, highlighting two in particular by creating the look for less with Polyvore. Enjoy!
