Best Fall 2011 Haute Couture Fashion Shows

Christian Dior Haute Couture

Christian Dior Fall 2011

The first Dior couture show without John Galliano. Its author, was the ex-leading man’s co-worker and this time it was him who was to bring his own tastes to the fore. The tastes were, however, cosmically eclectic. Gaytten presented pompous ensembles where geometry and astonishing forms were mixed with pastels, prints and heavy makeup. Oh, and , dressed as a Pierrot, a sad clown all alone in the spotlight. This is what they call a landscape after the battle.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2011 Haute Couture

Valli’s collection was divided into two parts: sexy knee-length dresses and floor-length stunners. The first part was abound with heavily embellished poplin dresses, and sexy cocktail frocks with ostrich feathers – just perfect party dresses! The statement-making gowns featured monochrome florals, animal prints, and what struck me the most, an amazingly feminine crimson. Formality and fun are no longer in opposition.

Alexis Mabille Fall 2011 Haute Couture

Alexis Mabille is a French fashion designer whose name was associated with Ungaro, Nina Ricci, and Christian Dior. As of his Fall 2011 Haute Couture collection, there was a lot of variation that featured all types of fashionable items: lace, fringing, cut-outs, fang studs, fur, and feathers. Mabille was clearly inspired with wild nature which resulted in outstanding yet glamorous creations. Dynamic, imaginative and racy.

Elie Saab Fall 2011 Haute Couture

Metallic fairy princess dresses covered with scads of beads and crystals ruled the runway of Elie Saab’s Haute Couture collection. The light and gleaming attitude of draped and gathered at the waist tulle numbers has a lovely, delightful charm. This is another colour-themed collection of Elie Saab: after a section in pale blue came white, then pink, mauve, and brown. Lovely!

Azzedine Alaïa Haute Couture

Azzedine Alaïa Fall 2011 Haute Couture

Tunisian-born couturier and shoe designer created a collection I would call ‘a relevation’. A front row that included Donatella Versace, Sofia Coppola, and Kanye West couldn’t be wrong. Alaia presented an impressive eveningwear collection consisting of latticed velvet dresses with furry finish and sculptural gowns, and coats based the hourglass shape. Very edgy and feminine, perfect for demanding women.
