Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall Winter 2011/2012 Paris Fashion Week

The collection designed by Dior’s new creative director Bill Gaytten and his assistant Susanna Venega was shown in extravagence at Paris Fashion Week. The collection could be best described as sophistication with a population of colour. Flamboyant prints were all the eye could see in the haute couture collection called ‘La Rose Moderne’.

Bill Gaytten channelled retro 70′s-80′s style with a modern finish (I salivated at the Post-Modernism he had going in this collection) a true genius with a bright future as creative director. Brilliant colors, as well as soft pastels, were sewn into bold and eccentric patterns.

The variety of cuts and styles were fun and flirty. This collection exploded onto the runway and attained the sheer elegance and individuality of each piece. The tones were burning in reds, oranges and yellows that faded to blues, greens and nude shades. Pink jackets, 50’s inspired skirts, candy-hued dresses, architectural shapes blened with chiffon, bold make-up and big hair created sophistication I described the show with.

The grand finale(SPECTACULAR) was filled with fairytale gowns and had such a mystical aura like being awake but dreaming, very dramatic and I believe that's what one needs for the success of Haute Couture!
