Looking for a list of investors who would consider a ticket size of $1-5 million for a couture house.
One of my clients received $500k funding ONE week after we did our pitch coaching session. What they learned from our session is to be 100% focused and not to follow the "scatter gun approach" that they had for the 9 previous months.
Another client was looking for 50 investors, and after our coaching in 3 weeks he raised 65% of the funds he needed from 2 investors! He said
"After our coaching session, the big change was that I realized that I just needed to approach confidently the bigger investors first."
You can create very quickly a list of investors interested in your field if you ask the right questions and understand your business, and industry like a pro.
Then you can start creating a more effective and efficient investors pipeline.
Basic questions to have answers to are:
• Who will be interested in your couture house?
• Who will benefit from seeing you succeed?
• Who will be hurt from seeing you succeed?
• Who was in your shoes when they started?
• Who is not yet in the industry and wants in?
• Who are all the richest players in your industry?
Other questions you will need to look into once you've got a list of investors to approach is:
1. How do you create a dynamic in which angels and investors WANT to meet you... rather you wanting to meet them?
2. What is your strategy for meeting angels / investors, for having conversations with them and for building useful relations with them?
3. How do you present your pitch?
4. What kind of questions do you ask angels / investors?

This is such a broad question. If you want a list, here is a list: http://www.entrepreneur.com/vc100
There is so much more to your question. Do you have revenue, do you have a current business, have you designed clothing before, have you manufactured clothing, there are so many things that I'd ask you to get a better idea of what investor you'd want to go after. However there are plenty of "lists" out there.
