The Fédération française de la couture, du prêt-à-porter des couturiers et des créateurs de mode (English: French Federation of Fashion and of Ready-to-Wear Couturiers and Fashion Designers) is the French fashion industry governing clothing. The Federation was created in 1973, growing out of an older trade union (which still exists within the Federation), the Chambre syndicale de la haute couture parisienne which was created in 1868. The Federation comprises three separate (English: trade union of men's (ready-to-wear) fashion) - created in 1973

  • Chambre syndicale du prêt-à-porter des couturiers et des créateurs de mode (English: trade union of (women's) ready-to-wear of couturiers and fashion designers) - created in 1973

The Federation also has a fashion school, the École de la chambre syndicale de la couture parisienne (created in 1928).

The Federation has close ties to the Union Nationale Artisanale de la Couture et des Activités Connexes (English: National Couture Craft Industry and Related Activities Union), a trade union of couture dressmakers in other French administrative regions outside of Paris.

The Federation is responsible for setting the dates and location of the French fashion weeks. It also establishes industry standards on quality and on the use of the word "haute couture".
