Haute Couture Week

Last week in Paris, Haute couture week had all the whose who of fashion biting their nails.

After last years Haute Couture it had people thinking that Haute Couture was eventually going to become a dying art, but this season has reassured us that Haute Couture is here to stay.

After the chaotic Dior Haute Couture show, it was followed by Valentino, Chanel, Armani Prive, Givenchy, Elie Saab, Maxime Simoens, Bouchra Jaarar, Giambattista Vali, Azzedine Alaia and a few more designers.

Despite Dior’s show I was so ecstatic to watch the other shows, as Haute Couture is the chance to go as outrageous and glamourous as possible.

Here are some of my favourite shows…

Giambattista Vali

Vali was able to live out his dream and after his RTW line in 2005 he quickly became popular with the celebrities and launched his first ever Haute Couture collection last week. Vali’s collection was magnificent
feminine shapes and light fabric and all the little details in on the shoes, the embroidery, the details in the belts and pearl detailing. After seeing his first Haute Couture collection I could tell he was so ready for it!I can’t wait to see what he does next!!


Givenchy’s Haute Couture was delicate and ethereal with some amazing embroidery and combination of fabrics. Riccardo Tisci summed up is A/W Haute Couture collection by calling it “Purity, lightness and fragility” Which is exactly what he portrayed. I particularly liked the combination of all the fabrics, the plumes, embellishments, fringes, the elegant silhouettes and off white colour.

Love, Petra
