    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…

    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

    J Mendel Haute Couture Autumn/Winter ’16/’17

    Beautiful furs in black, white, deep browns with golden sheens. Off the shoulder gowns, golden embellishments, sheer overlay skirts, fur wraps and dresses. The collection was so regal in their black, gold’s, warm browns, whites and pops of bright yellows. Along with the different types of furs this collection gave off such a warm and welcoming vibe. It was elegant, graceful and all round beautiful. There were some beautifully weaved fabrics that made the pattern of the gowns that flowed into the skirts. With almost nude makeup the collection tied together so nicely. images | Vogue XO Lisa

    Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    Zuhair Murad brings to the runway an opulant and elegant collection. A collection full of intricate embroidery and precious appliqués, contrasted with sheer overlays and skirts. A collection of short, mid and floor length dresses that had flowers and vines flowing up and down the bodice, skirt and arms. Jewel coloured tones paired with shimmering ruffles with gold and silver threads. Beautifully crafted gowns flowed from day-time looks right into the evening. This is the type of collection that I absolutely love and dreamed of wearing as a little girl and even now. I can’t even put into words on how much I fell in love with this collection. images…

    Chanel Haute Couture Autumn/Winter ’16/’17

    For this collection Karl Lagerfeld wanted to pay tribute to the staff of the ateliers. This show was a transportation of the bakstage of how this collection was made. He had his entire staff, sewing machines, cutting tables, designs, sketches, fabrics and manniquins all transported to the Grand Palais. He had literally recreated their workstations as a runway in true Karl Lagerfeld fashion. The dedication was shown in true Chanel fashion through the tweed suits and dresses, this season included the bell sleeves and bevelled sleeves. The suits featured cropped suits with their 3D embroidery and embellishments, wide-leg trousers. Low swooping necklines with 3D bell-shape over skirts along with the…

    Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    Beautifully crafted outfits that just kept surprising me over and over again. I love the theatrics of Jean Paul Gaultier’s designs and with each season I’m alway more in love with his artistic eye. Beautiful warm autumn colours were all displayed throughout this collection and I just couldn’t get enough of it. But there was also a nomatic feeling towards the designs with the fur coats and backpacks. Autumn was clearly displayed throughout this collection, not only through the colours but through the intricate patterns and textures. The use of autumn coloured leaves sewn on as a vest, flowing gowns that billowed around the legs of the models as they…

    Elie Saab Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 16’/17’

    Elie Saab has always been one of my favourite designers and it’s a pleasure to see their new Haute Couture collection again. This beautiful collection was full of delicate floral beading, velvet floor length gowns, chiffon and feather overlays that could have made any little girls dream come true. I especially loved the mother and daughter looks which were super adorable. Each of the designs was beautifully crafted like pieces of living art coming down the runway. Ranging from deep hues of purples and blues it gravitated to a lighter blush palette towards the end. Accents of gold and silver lightened the designs as well as making the intricate patterns…

    Margiela Haute Couture Autumn/Winter ’16/’17

    Bright and sunny was my very first thought what I saw this collection. Slowly that notion had turned to how unique and interesting this collection was with the clear plastic, oversized coats tied together at the waist, pops of contrasting colours at the collar, and large interesting hearts with their bright eye makeup and darkened lipsticks. What did you like about the collection? Let me know below. images | Vogue XO Lisa

    Valentino Haute Couture Autumn/Winter ’16/’17

    Loved the structure and silhouette’s for this collection. A lot of this collection reminded me of the shakespearean era of clothing with their high necks and rich fabrics. Leathers, furs and velvets littered throughout the collection weaving their magic into the designs. Exuberance of luxuries ran through this series just like everything of Valentino’s. They’re beautiful, meticulous, intricate and flattering. Did you have a favourite look? images | Vogue XO Lisa

    Fendi Haute Couture Autumn/Winter ’16/’17

    Having the runway show on a glass platform with water from the waterfall cascading down was just beautiful to watch. It really tied into the whole collected with the way that it had flowed. Feathers and furs were huge statement pieces throughout this collection. From white feathers made to look like flowers, fur coats and capes, to using fur as accent pieces to sleeves. Floral patterns running up and down the arms, the centre of the gowns and using the butterfly effect creating mirror images of the other half making a whole. Beautifully crafted prints of trees and the woods making hauntingly beautiful gowns. Did you have any favourite? Let…
