prêt-à-porter, noun : ready-to-wear clothes
"One of the industry's true characters, Valentino Garavani has worked in fashion for 65 years, starting as an apprentice before launching a couture and pret-a-porter label known throughout the world for glamour and luxury."

Prêt–à–porter (pronounced like "pret-ah-por-TAY") can also be styled without those fussy little diacritics, pret-a-porter, which seems more in keeping with the word's meaning. Prêt-à-porter is decidedly French, which can make it seem like a fancy word, but in fashion it contrasts with the truly fancy haute couture, which refers to the most fashionable of the fashions, and the houses and designers that make them. Prêt-à-porter is the stuff that can be bought in a store and worn by regular folk. Another word that contrasts here is bespoke, which describes clothes that are custom-made.
