Spring 2012 Couture Brings The Embellishments

Yesterday’s couture shows proved that embellishments are in. From crocodile skins to shiny fabrics and ombre colors, there is nothing plain about these clothes. Karl Lagerfeld used every single shade of blue imaginable. Richardo Tisci used reptile skins in the craziest ways. Giorgio Armani’s fabric shined through a dark runway set. I can see a… Continue reading Spring 2012 Couture Brings The Embellishments

Paris Fashion Week Fall 2011 Continues To Roll On

Paris Fashion Week continues to roll on without Galliano…well not quite without him. His namesake collection showed in a small salon in Paris to a smaller crowd than usual.

Paris Spring Fashion Week Post 4

Requiem was a pretty solid collection of 17 pieces. This was another one of the chic Parisian ladylike collections with all dresses and skirts. No pants allowed! The fabrics were great except for the construction on few pieces seemed stiff and a little puckered. Maybe it was the way the model was standing. I don’t… Continue reading Paris Spring Fashion Week Post 4
