British Invasion:Saint-Hill and Von Basedow Haute Couture Spring 2010

By Christine Suppes, West Coast Contributing Writer, Reporting from Paris

We were drawn to this event because the claim was that husband and wife duo are the fist British couture house in 100 years. The warm and gracious British Embassy hosted the two young designers whose style lies between that of Dominique Sirop and generic royal gowns . Clearly conservative, focusing primarily on draping, this is not a young look, though Mr. Saint-Hill's early assignment was a gown for Princes Diana. The designers hope to find sponsors in France so that they may join the Federation de Couture, an increasingly difficult task.
