Countdown to Couture

Countdown to Couture

Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 haute couture show season kicks off on Monday and I have my eyes on Alessandra Facchinetti who is Valentino’s successor, Christian Lacroix, and of course,  John Galliano for Christian Dior.

Remember his brilliance back then? Christian Dior Spring 2004 Haute Couture… you may be gone but you are definitely not forgotten.

Now is the time to place your bets. What do you think the chances are of John still being stuck in the 60s? Redeem yourself John. Please!

    The 1960s aren’t selling anymore. Look, even Donatella is moving forward. I seriously hope he doesn’t do 60s again. I’m sure he will go for something wilder. Besides, the 90s will be back soon. It’s the 20 years rule. You only have to look at people like Nicolas to see high influences from the late 80s and 90s.
    I can’t wait to see Riccardo’s job this time. He’s my favourite one. I’m still not over Autumn 07 Couture. I’ve never seen anything so good in my life, and I’m yet to see anything better than that.

    Wow, that was (is!) my all-time favourite Galliano collection. I don’t know how long i’ve been searching for HQ photographs of the collection to paste my walls with, guess they’ve all been lost in time…

    I am a huge fan of this store called Susie’s Deals!
    They carry clothes for everyone, men’s, women’s, and kids too. I always know that I can walk in to one of their stores a come out with a big bag of really cute stylish stuff for $25! Everything in the store is sold for $5.99 or less and you can even find things that are 2 for $5.99!
    I have bought some really nice name brand things at this store and given them to friends and family for Christmas. People have NO idea that these nice items only cost me $5.99 each .. It’s Awesome!
    I urge you to check them out, because you only have one store on your site that carries clothing and this store appeals to everyone! And they have a web site where you can also shop online or snatch an e-coupon to use at the store, and if you spend $50 the shipping is FREE which is a definite plus!
    Their web site is they have store in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah too.

    Wow — that looked like the Pilita Corrales in Vegas collection!

  5. My ultimate dream is to actually have something made for me at the couture. I already have some couture but bought off someone. I went to Chanel after the couture and tried on some samples and the trousers fits me perfectly—-through my arm. The short and tiny PR girl at Chanel put on the gown and she looked like she were sitting on top of a melting wedding cake.
