Haute Couture Heaven

Thursday, 13 June 2013

Heyy Guysss :D

Fashion to me is being able to transform. Fashion takes influences from mood, environment and personality. It is the clothing one wears which allows a person to experiment and be individual. Fashion has the power to show status, reflect culture and authority as well as diversity. Having the impulse to take an object, scenery or even an event and manipulating this into garments is what drives my absolute obsession with fashion. 

For those who don't know already I am a Fashion and Textiles designer in the making and as much as I love hight street clothing, Haute couture is the way for me!

 Fairytale frocks from the king of Oscars fashion 
Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2012

Lebanese designer Elie Saab in my eyes is the genius behind many of the memorable creations seen in the last decade at the famous ceremony "The Oscars" and is also my no.1 favourite Haute couture designer. This collection is the ultimate ensemble combining romance and glamour using intricately cut crystals alongside with gentle, sheer fabrics fit for Hollywood dazzle look. The collection is a dreamy array of fairytale frocks in ice-cream colours of mint, peach and cream. I Love everything about it from the colour palette to the delicate detail.

Hairstyle & makeup: 
Once again it has been proven that you just cant go wrong with ponytails . Elie Saab encourages long faux lashes, metallic lips, very thick eyebrows and neutral eye-makeup.

Now this is what I call Elegance at its finest !!!

Stephane Rolland's spring/summer 2012 collection is a sculptural collection inspired by the kinetyc art of Michel Deverne. Articular rehearsal and laminated spiral creations have fed Stephane Rolland's collection; the design battles between straight lines and smoothness, architecture lyric volumes and 3D cuts manner meet to create a fine waist silhouette with amazing shapes in the shoulders and sleeves. Elegant fabrics such as silk jersey, chiffon, gazar, organza and cascade of ostrich feathers dominated the collection and helped emphasize the soft lines. I love how Stephane Rolland understands a woman's body and takes risks with the shape of the silhouette. 
He is the definition of AUDACIOUS in my opinion!

Stephane Rolland introduced colour clashing fabrics as fierce red, pistachio and the classic black and white, gold accessories under the form of metallic gold waistbands and ample bust accessories.

Hairstyle & makeup: 
I love the pulled back straight look  with curved sculpted tips the models rocked down the runway. The eye make was very dark and intense while the rest of the face was kept neutral.

I am also obsessed with the late Alexander Mcqueen(R.I.P)

 These four designers are my key inspirations and I admire them all for their own individual reasons.
