I’ve had this blog post as a draft since Friday, and I’ve absolutely no idea why I haven’t clicked ‘Publish’ since then.
So let’s discuss Paris Couture week, or as I say P’ashion Week.
First up, Christian Dior.
At Dior one is transported to a fresh, spring fantasy, with soft colours and feminine silhouettes. Again, Raf Simons makes use of bell jar skirts, black suits and fitted trousers, intricate embroidery and pops of bright red. When researching for his first Dior collection, he went back to the brand’s roots, and now we’re seeing a modern, unique version in his collections today.
Every night I pray for an Elie Saab dress. I could be normal, or pretty insane. But we all know he creates the most beautiful, whimsical evening dresses.
Giambattista Valli’s collection is just pure prettiness. It drew me in with its statement accessories and mod 50s silhouettes.
I have a confession to make: to say I am obsessed with Ulyana Sergeenko, is an understatement. I love everything about her, and her couture. Ulyana transports me to a fairy tale world (this happens often) with her spring/summer couture collection. The collection was described as “Scarlett O’Hara falling headfirst into The Wizard of Oz.” It was inspired by well-known novels, such as Gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Headless Horseman. Ulyana has really proved herself in the fashion industry. Can’t wait to meet her one day.
