Haute Couture

Haute Couture (ot-koo-toor) is French for high fashion.  Each piece is tailored for a specific client.  It is handmade and it is of the highest quality that is why it is very expensive.

This is the opposite of Prêt-à-Porter.  Prêt-à-Porter (predapor-tā) means ready-to-wear. It is factory made and produced in big quantities with different standard sizes.
