At Paris Haute Couture, French and Italian designers rushed to the runway to showcase their breathtaking designs. This year we've witnessed the veil prevail at many shows (special mention to Armani and Giambattista Valli for doing it particularly well).
Strong trends that will permeate from the runway to real life? Expect to see extra-full shirts, ruffles (Giambattista Valli and Christian Dior) and well-placed embellishment (Elie Saab and Armani) hit shelves in the coming months. Treat your eyes to sartorial decadence!
Valentino –A romantic collection. As always, full length chiffon gowns were the standouts. Designers dulled down the houses’ traditional colour red and this time heading more for navy blues for the mood of the collection.
