Hauto Couture

Lavishly adorned cars become more of a fashion accessory than mode of transportation

Implications - The recent degree of auto ornamentation would be more fitting on a runway, rather than a driveway. Though cars have been modified for speed for decades, these luxuriously decorated cars are made with fashion in mind—not function—and give consumers a new way to boast not only their individuality, but their opulence. With the credit crunch at bay, consumers are continuing to look for ways to flash their cash—and hauto couture is a perfect outlet.
