Fall 2012 Couture : Christian Dior

Christian Dior's couture collection this season is a debut for Raf Simmons. There was a lot of excitement and anticipation to see what his take for couture would be like.

Fall 2012 Couture : Givenchy

Givenchy's collection is the most intriguing couture collection so far. There is so much detailing and braiding in each pieces. But I love the silhouette's. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Fall 2012 Couture : Chanel

Chanel resort collection is gorgeous.. There is so much detailing and richness of the design. I love the snoods, they make the overall appearance very chic. They were typical Chanel separates with a lot of detailing in the piping. I loved the pieces where there was that criss cross pattern. The finale dress with the feathers looks absolutely amazing and whimsical. The pants had a different silhouette altogether. They are like harem pants but not quite. ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ;…Read more

Fall 2012 Couture Bouchra Jarrar

Jarrar's collection features some really polished separates. Almost work appropriate in some cases. But there some elegant evening wear too. I like silhouette of the trench. Very feminine. I also love the beaded top with the flare black pants. It's very chic. The best in my opinion is the flower print white silk dress with the black underneath it. I like the effect it brings. ; ; Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more

Fall 2012 Couture Alexis Mabille

Alexis Mabille's couture collection presented a fantasy of sorts. I could almost associate each piece with a fairy tale character. But my quirky observations aside, the collection certainly has a bold, strong and confident feel to it. I loved the metallic gowns with a duo chrome feel. I love the black dress with the keyhole cut neck with embellishment. The gowns with the lined cape look beautiful and mysterious. ; ; ; Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more
