Spring 2011 Haute Couture #2

One of the highly anticipated shows of Couture Week was that of Christian Dior, designed by John Galliano. Once again his show was exactly what you'd expect from a couture show - over the top, colourful and oppulent. Paying homage to the 50's, models were styled with bold red lips, dramatic lined eyes and classic 50's updo's. Pastel gowns were a feature of the show with shapes designed to truly show off the female form. Givenchy, designed by Ricardo Tisci, took a futuristic turn opting for neutral shades with blasts of orange, yellow and pink. Feathers, heavy embellishments and sheer fabrics were instrumental in creating a heavily layered but soft and fragile collection. All collections can be viewed at www.vogue.com.au.
