order to fit an
individual client’s
measurements & are
the most luxurious &
expensive. Examples
of couturiers include
Karl Lagerfeld,
Christian Lacroix,
Yves St. Laurent,
Valentino etc.
 Designer pertains to ready-to-wear
from successful designers who have a
“signature collection” ,use the best of
fabrics, quality mass production, &
charge high prices. Eg. Armani, Donna
Karan, Ralph Lauren etc.

to designer fashion & is achieved by
using less expensive fabric or different
production methods. Eg. CK, Versus,

 Better to Budget. Typically price range is a
step up to budget. The fabrics and styling
are also of better quality than lower-priced
items. Sportswear, coordinates and
dresses may all appear in better lines. Jones
New York and Anne Klein are two examples
of a better-priced line.
 Budget. The low end of the apparel
spectrum usually retails for budget prices.
Often casual sportswear -- jeans and Tshirts
-- falls into this category & sometimes they
are a knockoff of higher priced designer
items. Old Navy, Cherokee, and Mossimo are
a few popular budget labels.
