Am I being presumptuous declaring my expertise? We will let the readers be the judge after having read my story.
The fact that I literally passed through the fire of a childhood tragic incident leaving the lower half of my body severely scarred and disfigured, and rebuilt my shattered self-identity and esteem by teaching myself Vogue patterns at age nine. I had to develop my best couture living freedom concept in personal style to compensate for my disfigurement.
Despite my schooling and educational background, this wisdom alone qualifies me to assist others in their personal haute couture style development, which I have done for hundreds of individuals. It's now the purpose of this website to do the same for millions!
Enjoy this liberating Haute Couture adventure as we embrace a high-fashion concept of what is truly us reflected exactly by what we wear!
Join the haute couture club community! As I invite all to set up a personal free meet-and-greet via video chat today and experience a personal styling coaching session from expert designers, myself and my son Caleb (Cal)!
Let's do a meet- and-greet and a free coaching session.
Learn the language of fashion and style and become a skilled writer of a glorious and fabulous personal destiny with ease, skill, and grace.
Witness our true couture self-concept develop, as we benefit from the years of couture experience and knowledge that my fashion design team and I have to share.
We will collect liberating insights from the decades of adventures in
fashion I have acquired. We will also catch fresh edgy fashion insights
from my son and head menswear designer Caleb Garcia Taylor whom I call Cal!
also warmly invite our readers to participate in all the pages of this site by adding their own views and opinions, as that is how we grow and develop our best
couture concept and really learn what works for us individually.
What is this term we refer to as Haute Living, or Haute Couture Living as a lifestyle philosophy?
Imagine we are figuratively gracefully walking through life with a huge shopping cart. No matter how many things we fill it with, and no matter where we go, it remains light and easy to maneuver. It doesn't weight us down, in fact, the cart serves as a welcome support for us to lean on. In this cart we are constantly collecting elements of life from the world around us, that inspire and amaze us. Nuances that we wish to share with the ones that we love and our peers. The things that we take joy in celebrating about ourselves and our journeys. The things that fill the spaces we live with the same joy and wonder that we experienced the first time we discovered them! These are the things and moments that make up the foundation of Couture Living!
With the help of this site we want each of you to truly attain the joy and
liberation of HAUTE COUTURE LIVING, it is achieved from a well developed
personal style wisdom! In effect, to become capable of styling ourselves to reach our personal goals and objectives, however, essentially we are dressing to please ourselves! Free from the stifling and squelching
rules that the "style critics" would impose upon us to keep us in their
"box". Believe me, a style box is not a fun place to be!
To truly attain to Haute Couture Living, we ditch the box and step
out into the glorious light of day, take in the world around us,
embrace the beauty that is around us, and make it our own reflected by
the garments we have designed for ourselves.
We know ourselves so well and have such a strong point of view, that our designer finds it inspiring to work with us in bringing our vision to life.
We are talking about daily making our dreams a reality, in a spirit of curiosity and personal fulfillment!
Couture is frivolous, but what good is storing up and maintaining wealth, if not to live while we are alive in a constant state of inspiration and wonderment?
An artist may not give us the best financial advice, but an artist will teach us how to live! Let me be your artist, if only for a day! Let it be known:
There is a lifetime of discovery that can be lived in a single moment!

So exciting! New client safety protocols for all of our custom, bespoke, and couture clients servicing them internationally out of Istanbul Turkiye:
We are now servicing all of our custom fashion, bespoke, and couture clients remotely with zero physical contact or fittings necessary. This is the same way we have already been servicing international clients.
We conduct our consultations on zoom.
Then, thanks to 3-D printing technology we take our clients measurements by their 3-D body-scan.
We then conduct their fittings on their 3-D printed mannequin printed from their body-scan. (All new first time clients are required to get a scan and have a print out done. We facilitate this process quickly and easily.)
The new custom clothes arrive on their doorstep with a perfect fit.
