{Paris Fashion Week Spring17 Couture} Zuhair Murad’s Explosion of Color

It was a display of fireworks on Zuhair Murad‘s Spring 2017 couture runway – the designer taking literal inspiration from the advanced pyrotechnic displays of Japan. The concept was realized through a few playsuits and jumpsuits, but mostly gowns of eye-popping color.

{Paris Fashion Week Spring17 Couture} Ralph & Russo

A favorite design house for the A-list red carpet, Ralph & Russo keeps stepping up their game. For the Spring 2017 couture collection, the magic team Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo wanted to offer a variety of red carpet worthy looks to every type of woman, focusing around the thought of empowerment. With Kirsten Dunst in attendance, I’m wondering if we might see one of these dresses on her in one of the coming awards shows….

{Fall 16 Couture} Zuhair Murad

When Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is playing, you know the energy of the collection is going to be high. Infused with the ’70’s vibe, Zuhair Murad‘s Fall 2016 Couture collection broke out of the princess shimmer gown stereotype and went a little rocker, a little hippie chic, and a little Gustav Klimt art piece.

The base looks were very much house Murad, with sheer skintight embroidered body silhouette gowns, jumpsuits, a caftan, mini dresses, and a stunning bridal gown to close the show.

{Fall 16 Couture} Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld is known for creating dreamlike backdrops for his runway shows, and the Fall 16 Couture show was perhaps the apex for most Chanel fans who were there to witness it. Lagerfeld actually flew in the ateliers and their workshops in which the magic of Chanel is made, and gave Chanel coveteurs a chance to witness – during a live runway couture show – the actual process of making couture clothing. Apparently, there was nothing staged about it. He instructed the ateliers to continue their work just as they had back in their actual shop. Um, what?! What an incredible jaw-on-the-floor moment!

Yep, didn’t think so. And the dress is actually available now. Because for any black tie affair…or walking around the house, this dress is obviously a must.
