The Academy of Couture is a genesis of true haute couture. In developing their role in the global fashion community, the Academy of Couture Art created for 2012 an Honorary Board of Directors for the College in advance of the official launch of Couture Guild International, inducting two members at the Le Reve Gala: Her Royal Highness Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark and Her Excellency Michelle Czernin von Chudenitz und zu Morzin.
Honorary Membership shows support for the ACA community and the mission of couture. Some members offer to make special guest appearances at our events or even hold intimate guest lectures in the college. Others choose to represent their support simply through the listing of college Honorary Members.
Founded by Sonia Été and Thierry Été, the Academy of Couture Art in Los Angeles provides an exclusive education in haute couture technique and design formerly unavailable outside of the leading European fashion houses.
Students learn the delicate process of creating one of a kind pieces. From pattern making to handcrafted lace and beading, the program is an homage to the beauty, sophistication, innovation, intelligence, elegance and harmony of the creation.
Graduates for their Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design including Maxfield Freiermuth, Sarah Kim, Mariana Romero Tejeda, and Angela Wu presented their thesis collections. Justin Howard, fashion columnist for the New York Times commented that his "ones [designers] to watch" list will be growing with names from the Academy!
