About Haute Couture Société
Haute Couture was formed in 1968 by a group of 12 Stockton College students who were inspired by their teacher, LaVina Scott. It has evolved into a nonprofit organization which welcomes all. An annual fashion show is produced with garments designed by members and invited guest designers. Show proceeds fund scholarships in apparel design and fashion merchandising.
