    Atelier Versace Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    Watching this collection was like watching a flower bloom. I loved watching the fabric flow as the outfits walked down the runway. There was so much movement that you could focus on that brought out different aspects of the collection. Each outfit that come down the runway lead onto the next one weather it was a pop of colour, style or the strips of floral designs. It was so well constructed and thought out collection. One of my favourites of this collection was the swirls of patterns and the pops of colour on a black canvas. What did you like about this collection? images | Vogue

    Christian Dior Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    I was kinda surprised that this collection wasn’t super over the top.I actually really liked this style of collection. Of course the roses that the brand is know for are featured across a few of the designs. What I noticed was that there wasn’t a lot of colour through the collection either which was interesting to see. But it was elegant, understated and beautiful. There were so many pieces that you could have mixed and matched with each other and still make each outfits look amazing. One of my favourite things about Dior is that their style and silhouette’s are always quite flattering and very dream like. images | Vogue…

    Francesco Scognamiglio Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    This was such a beautiful collection.It was so dramatic, but that’s really the heart of haute couture wouldn’t you say? This collection has it all, the glitz and the glamour. Walking through luxurious rooms decked out in deep purple carpet and gold gilding on the doors these outfits fit right in. Not only were these outfits stunning to look at they also brought a certain amount of wowness to the audience. I personally loved the lace but I always do love lace on gowns. It just makes me feel so decadent and girly. I don’t think that I’ll ever grow out of dressing in poofy gowns and feeling like a…

    Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    It’s really an autumn colection with it’s colour scheme of bronzes, oranges and browns. There’s an edge to each of the designs but also a feminine side to them. There was a lot of a-line silhouettes which I love and it elongates the body while they’re coming down the runway. I also love the wide belts with the metal rings and it was used to make a full dress! Such interesting way to use a belt! There was a lot of beautifully flowing gowns for all occasions, some with glittering gems others with velverty feathers. Then there were the coats that were lined with fur to faux leather to huge…

    Schiaparelli Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    Beautiful collection full of colour and pizzaz! Golden gowns, ombre colours and animal patterns were all part of this collection. They sat side by side bringing out each other’s brighter sides. Gowns flowed like water with their brightly coloured nature patters fitted together with a golden leaf. A lot of this collection reminded me of how beautiful our nature is and how it surrounds us. Especially living in Australia, living in the city I sometimes forget this fact. I’m not one for huge flowers or anything too bright and this collection was a combination of both. But somehow I really liked it. images | Vogue XO Lisa

    Armani Privé Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    Sleek beautiful silhouette’s came down the runway for the Haute Couture, this was just like Armani. There was so much embroadered onto tops, skirts and coats that was like stars in the night sky glittering on the outfits. This collection screamed of luxury and the finer things. Satin and silk scarves tied together in a neat bow across the shoulders, big and small bows were featured throughout in different shades of the fabrics of the dresses. The collection ended with pops of baby blue.   images | Vogue XO Lisa

    Iris van Herpen Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    This collection is not only beautiful but it was a feast on the eyes as well. It was like looking at an illusionist with the patterns that the dresses made. Blacks, white, beige and different shades of brown made up the collection. The golden bowls that made up parts of the runway enhanced all the looks throughout the collection. These designs reminded me of the butterfly finger paintings that I use to do as children where each half replicated each other. Beautiful patterns made from the simplest designs. As part of this unique collection were the unique shoes, fringe and barely there makeup. images | Vogue XO Lisa
