fashion design term for
clothing marketed in a finished condition, in standard clothing
fashion houses or
fashion designers create
ready-to-wear lines that are mass-produced and industrially
manufactured. Others offer lines that are still very exclusive
and produced only in limited numbers and only for a limited
time. In contrast to
haute couture, these lines
are never one of a kind. High-end ready-to-wear lines are
sometimes based upon a famous gown or pattern that is then
duplicated to raise the designer's visibility level.
