Couture F/W 09 Round Up…

I know everyone seems to have posted them already but I just wanted to pick out my favourite looks from the Fall/Winter 09 Couture shows….

Christian Dior:
John Galliano focused on sharp silhouettes with the emphasis on the waist. He also chose to pair extravagant jackets with nude showing underwear….

Rather using his traditional white and black, Lagerfeld added touches of colour with embroidered details on prom dresses…although sheer black flirty dresses did feature…

Christian Lacroix:
Rich colours and a mix of textures saw Lacroix use gothic influences mainly in the form of lace and some fancy headgear…

Jean Paul Gaultier:
JPG brought sex back to couture. The shoulders were exaggerated and the materials used varied from leather to fur (fingers crossed its faux) to some kind of sheer chiffon, creating a modern day superwoman…

Elie Saab:
An all white collection with the emphasis on detailing. Sharp tiers and again the obligatory exaggerated shoulder…
