Paris became the city of fashion for five days, from 25 to 29 of January. Every year the Haute Couture Fashion Week takes place in Paris and nowhere else, unlike the every-day- wear catwalk shows, which can happen everywhere. This year, after a week of terror, fashion shows have been the bravest and the boldest. The designers have shown themselves as very fearless and professional.
The sophisticated collections for spring and summer 2015 have been shown in the French capital this January. Famous designers and fashion houses like Chanel, Valentino, Versace, Giorgio Armani Prive, Christian Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Schiaparelli, Alexandre Vauthier and have presented their incredible clothes on the Haute Couture Week. Actually, the collections at haute couture are the important messages for the fashion world. Though not many people can buy the garments with 5-figures price tags, it is the forward-looking fashion show.
The show itself was like a garden full of flowers. The chanel logo was applied even to the watering can. It took almost six month to create 300 paper flowers for the show decoration. Karl Lagerfeld said that the catwalk was a synthetic paradise and he dreamt about it lying in bed. Bare midriffs, slouchy skirts, sock booties, enormous hats with black tulle and tiny beanies adorned with flowers looked natural.
Christian Dior took the elements of the 50s, the 60s and the 70s and mixed them together. The result was great. It’s a blend of futuristic and psychedelic elements. The spring and summer collection consists of loopy jumpsuits, plastic coats, printed with flowers and skintight boots. It seems rather weird but gorgeous.
The runway show was very glamorous. Donatella Versace described the collection as the combination of the cuts and curves of a woman’s body. Long sexy dresses with provocative cuts, skintight jumpsuits, luxurious gowns and amazing trousers suits attracted everyone’s attention. Stark white, cobalt blue, red passion and black were the basic colours of the collection and made the clothes the leaders among gowns and dresses. Donatella invited the supermodels of the 90s – Eva Herzigova, who is 41 and Amber Valletta,40. They wore beautiful flared and skintight jumpsuits, which showed their perfect bodies.
The spring and summer collection consisted of 68 pieces and featured beautiful Oriental prints applied to the delicate materials and elegant silhouettes. Bamboo columns, adding the mood to the show, were on both sides of the catwalk. The models with sleek ponytails wore feminine jackets and enormous accessories. Silk and glittering fabrics created a glamorous mixture together with bamboo motifs.
