    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

    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…

    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…

    Viktor & Rolf Haute Couture Autumn/Winter ’16/’17

    Just so much excess fabric was used there and it was glorious! This collection was a cross between being a little circus-y and pinning everything under the sun on the outfits. The outcome was just stunning! Love the combination of the overly use of everything but the colours were mixed just right. It was a little like organised chaos. With the top hats and the flare of the designs it was like walking into a travelling circus with side of adventure. What were your thoughts? images | Vogue XO Lisa

    Guo Pei Haute Couture Autumn/Winter ’16/’17

    The first time I heard of Guo Pei was when Rihanna came dressed in that beautiful yellow gown for the Met Gala a few years back. I loved her designs and ever since I haven’t gotten enough of her ideas and beautiful designs. This is the first post that I have done on her runway looks. Guo Pei is a Chinese fashion designer that have been known to make commission pieces for many Chinese actresses. A lot of her designs in this season had the use of golds and silvers in the patterns. Beautifully crafted gowns that looked very much like disney princess gowns and with the tiara’s to boot.…
