I just want you all to know that I thoroughly enjoyed the fall 2015 couture fashion shows. They are giving me all the feels. Sometimes I am skeptical of what I see. Sometime designers either do too little or too much with couture. This season though… was amazing.
Hello readers! I can’t wait to bring you part one of the Spring/Summer 2013 Paris Couture roundup. I decided to so you all some of my favorite shows this season! I’m so excited. Check out pics from Alexis Mabille, Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, Chanel, Elie Saab, Ulyana Sergeenko, and Valentino. [SOURCE]
Elie Saab, Valentino, and Jean Paul Gaultier showed either preciously pastel or rowdy rock and roll inspired collections. Elie Saab showed dainty pastels that would be perfect for the upcoming Oscars. Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri created flowery printed gowns perfect for the girlest girly girl. Jean Paul Gaultier’s new couture collection was inspired by Amy Winehouse, so you know it is perfect for any beehived diva! I am really enjoying the couture gowns this season. They are so beautiful!

Spring 2011 Couture shows roll on with Elie Saab, John Paul Gaultier, and Givenchy.
Elie Saab’s show was so beautiful. The light colors of pastel pinks, purples, and reds combined with the intricate detail work on the dresses reminded me of a secret garden. I can see a lot of red carpet moments with these gowns. The Oscars are a few days away… let’s see if anyone will get a special dress flown in.
The designers at Valentino made sure the collection was for the young at heart. Short babydoll dresses and kitten heels were popular themes throughout the collection. I have to say I actually like this collection better than the past collections that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli and have done for the brand.
If the Valentino collection was for the young at heart, then the Elie Saab collection was for the sexually aware, yet classy woman. The collection was full of fiery reds, bare legs, and deep v-cut necklines. Elie Saab did not disappoint me at all. Between this collection and Dior, you really see what couture is all about. Oh and did anybody catch Karolina Kurkova walking the Elie Saab show? I guess it is safe to safe that the Victoria Secret models have successfully merged back from couture to commercial to couture again.
Fall 2009 Haute Couture Season has come and gone. It was so quick, but what do you expect when you only have 9 couture designers. I was very impressed with all the collections this season. Usually I find something or another that does not suit my eye, but I was surprised by the looks. On a sad note, this fall’s Christian Lacroix collection may be his last because his company filed for bankruptcy. They are trying to restruture it, but I read on one website, the other day, that they basically fired most if not all of the staff. 🙁 Since I liked all of the collections. I have decided to show you what I feel are the 3 best looks from each collection.

P.S. Here is a little video from New York Times The Cut on the making of a Chanel Couture:
Tonight I bring you a sample of my favorite spring 2009 couture collections.
I fell in love with neutral colors featured by Elie Saab. The dresses were ruffled and beaded. It was a really feminine, yet strong collection. It was amazing as usual.
John Paul Gaultier’s collection was very 80’s looking. It also looked like it was inspired by architecture. It reminded me of Madonna’s “Express Yourself” video. Maybe he was using his previous work for his inspiration. Either way it was hot, and his show featured two black models, Sessilee Lopez and Jourdan Dunn. Awesome!!
John Galliano really did himself up this time. The Dior spring 2009 collection was amazing. Galliano was inspired by the old Flemish masters. You could see that right away with the detailing in the big bold sleeves and luxurious hats. He also had some New Look dresses in the mix as well. The colors were vibrant and the beading and ruffles were terrific. Even though some of the dresses looked like Lil Bo Peep, I could dig it.
