Fashion never rests. After “fmG’s Favorites from Pre-Fall Fourteen” post, here we are at Paris’s couture shows for Spring 2014 and after viewing through the collections, let me just say…wow. I’ve probably mentioned this before, but there’s something about the word “couture” that sends me chills. It’s where design and production are at its finest. Why? Because at least 75% of the garment must be made by hand. Materials used are at the highest quality. And each piece is custom made to fit the client’s body to a tee. No wonder “haute couture” means “high sewing!” With that said, here are my favorites from the runways!
Many may think there’s a lot going on in this dress- the asymmetrical long-sleeve, a peplum, a high slit, and not to mention it being completely covered in mini floral petals! It’s a mumbo-jumbo in one which gives it a unique personality. Sigh, if only the center slit were to the knees.
Fashion meets dance. Even though Viktor & Rolf’s collection doesn’t consist of any bombardment of embellishes, I find these delicate frocks so adorable especially the bird illustrations. Plus, those models/ballerinas better “pointe” down that runway!
Ultimate favorite collection!!!
