Couture Fashion Week: Review (Part 1)

I'm too lazy to post all the shows separately... you can find them at style.com if anyone is interested.

REVIEW...

I'll start with the heavyweights.


DIOR

While I agree that it's not as good as last season, and that there's a fair bit of repetition here, I'd like to come to Galliano's defense and say that it's unfair just to criticize him for the lack of something new, when a lot of the other designers are doing the same. The clothes are still stunning. I would like to see things turn into a different direction for his next collection though.

Embroidery is inspired by Klimt.

CHANEL

Mixed feelings about this. It is again quite similar to previous collections but it is an improvement on the last one. Kudos for doing the whole show with flats - in theory this is a nice idea. In practise however... one thing the models look AWKWARD as if they've never walked/posed in flat shoes before... and secondly some of the flats are damn right ugly. It all looks a lot better close up tbh.
