Well, I'm not one who wants to make an outfit my own. I prefer to have it special and unique to begin with. But for everyday life I would choose RTW. BUT if I have to go to any sort of high-class, high-status, etc., event I would 100% go couture.

RTW is of course practical.. you can wear it at any kind occasion but for a fashionista, I pick haute couture because of it's one-of-a-kind and it's all about the designer's imagination and creativity on each piece of the clothing.

Ready to wear. It's much more affordable and you can always wear accessories to really make it your own.

Couture is beautiful, but ready-to-wear is just more practical for my life.

I just adore any couture creation, but I love both!

couture for sure because it's so fabulous, but when you think about it, who is going to walk down the street wearing that outfit? no one (maybe for a really fancy fashion party), so that's why more people will say ready-to-wear...

I voted couture, but I like to kind of translate couture styles into something wearable that will still catch your eye. Like a good pair of jeans and a one-of-a-kind pattern as seen on the runway.

I THINK BOTH ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT. IF POSSIBLE THOUGH, I WOULD WEAR COUTURE EVERDAY.
