Couture

There are a fair few nuances included in terms such as: high street fashion, ready to wear, prêt-à-porter, couture, haute couture. I don't understand them except that the cost changes radically.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.

Tony's implied answer (which I agree with) was, in effect, ridiculously expensive.
