So Haute! Paris Spring 2013 Couture Fashion Week Pt. I

Its so haute in here! Yes its that time of your… Paris Couture Fashion Week! The most artistic display of fantasy clothing were there are no limits to what designers can create! One of the best innovative weeks of fashion that separates the seamstresses from the designers! This year was no exception! High fashion designers presented their best work and left it all on the runway! Here are some of my favorites from this week of fashion fantasy!

Valentino

One of the more iconic designers of our time, Valentino did not disappoint this year! The haute couture runway was simply breathtaking! Sticking with a simple color pallet of red, white, and black, the dynamic design duo created pieces that had innovative baroque embroidery, created interesting shapes that are somewhat controversial, played with the dynamics of sheer fabric, and as always gave a lot of texture from lace to feathers to beading and embroidery. The Valentino Couture Collection was simply stunning and I’m sure we will see these pieces on a red carpet for sure!

Jean Paul Gaultier

Gypsies, tramps and thieves! The Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Collection reflected the story of the bohemian life! Gaultier created a scene of dresses with bold bright prints, lightweight floral dresses in bright hues of plum, and structured pant suits that pushed the envelope of cutouts.  For any goddess that lives to the beat of her own drum, Gaultier’s collection was a trip into the romantic life of La Boheme!
