Hightlights from Paris Fall 2011 Fashion Week

Fashion week in Paris was amazing, all the designers out did themselves as usual.  Besides the wonderful collection from Chanel the show itself was very theatrical and dramatic, with its fog-shrouded forest on a bed of still-smoldering scorched earth. The collection was filled with jackets, coats, distressed denim leggings, caps, and boots each item looking as if they had been moth-eaten or tattered.  Collete’s collection was filed with detailed lace, beaded embellishments, and crystals. Her collection was full of beautiful pieces; my favorite was full knee length dress with the beautiful trim detail. (upper right photo).  Elie Saab has always been a favorite of mine and this show was no exception.  Of course he had amazing details of lace and beaded. Colors included gray, dark red, and abstract multicolor print. Emanuel Ungara was filled with lace, beaded trim, leather and sequin. There were many lavishing pieces on the runway from strapless black jumpsuit with long-sleeve lace underlay to a sculpted domino sequin embroidered gown.

LUCA LUCA Fall 2011

By Blerona

If you’ve read our previous post, then you know that we have decided to attend some shows this year for Fall Fashion Week and really get into the spirit of Fashion!! Our first show that we attend was the LUCA LUCA Show. Raul Melgoza collection was inspired by women traveling in the woods, what would a woman wear? The collection captured that theme exactly. And even if I didnt’ have a chance to travel in the woods, I would wear these pieces anywhere.  From the beautiful pencil skirts and brilliant colors, LUCA LUCA’s show was a breath-taking. Even in these photos I still get goose bumps.
