However, modern fashion design may be categorized into two parts; “Haute Couture” and “Ready-to-wear.” Like an haute couture collection that is usually tailor-made and specially designed for certain customers and is custom sized to fit for these customers exactly. In this regard, it is a compulsion to qualify as the Haute Couture Designer to be a part of the “Syndical Chamber” for Haute Couture and shows a new collection two times in a year, presenting at least 35 different outfits each time. The second category, Ready-to-Wear Collections, is standardized rather than customized to the customer’s requirements. These are, however, suitable for large production runs. That category is further divided into two sub-sections; Designer collection, which has a higher quality and better finish, as well as exclusivity in design. This ready-to-wear category is presented on international fashion shows (Catwalks). While other subsection includes ordinary dress designs meant for common customers.
