the privileged few

>> When Cathy Horyn interviewed Riccardo Tisci a couple of weeks ago, Mr. Tisci revealed something something that shocked me: his January couture collection had twenty-nine customers.  Twenty-nine.  I knew that the number of couture clients has always been very small, but I never realized it was that few.  And to think, as he told Ms. Horyn, when he first arrived at the house of Givenchy, there were only five couture clients.   How amazingly lucky that with the money-driven world we live in, couture still lives.
