Over-the-top... extravagant... magical! All above are needed to describe the amazing creations that float down the runways of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Fall 2012! This year in Paris, all of the well know high fashion designers pulled out all the stops for any designers dream, Haute Couture! For those of you who are new to fashion, haute couture fashion is very ethereal, dramatic, and takes the eye to a more creative universe! Designers like Armani, Valentino, Versace, Chanel and many more created truly phenomenal collections that most women and men could ever dream of wearing! In this two part blog series, I am going to share with you some of my favorites from this years Haute Couture Runway shows! The first show I wanted to share was the amazing Giorgio Armani in his collection Armani Prive' which included inspirations from structured menswear to dreamy starry night skies. Armani took the audience through a journey of a modern woman from day to night. Impeccable tailoring mingled well with the pastel color pallet, not to mention the femininely structured hats and veils completing this collection! Classic and chic is the perfect way to describe the Chanel Haute Couture Fashion Show! The Chanel show had a little bit of everything any woman would ask for in a wardrobe. With classic structured designs from coats to suits flowed into a 1920s inspired selection of dresses which then transitioned into modern designs and trendy modern colors from neon to pastel. All of the pieces had a strong feminine motif and were classic and modern all wrapped into one!
