As many of you have already heard, the house of Valentino is showing a very special Haute Couture Collection here in New York City later tonight, December 10, at 8PM New York (EST) time. I’ve been told at my fitting the other day that it’s going to be a HUGE production. They’ve imported dozens of seamstresses from Europe to work on the collection here in New York.
I’m very excited to watch the show! Join the festivities and come back to my blog later tonight for the livestream.
Atelier Versace returns to Paris! I love Donatella’s spring/summer 2012 haute couture collection, especially those metal details on certain parts of the body. Also, the clothes fit like second skin. Incredible. BTW, Karlie Kloss looked like a goddess!
Yesterday was the Christian Dior fall/winter 2011 haute couture show in Paris. How do you feel about Bill Gaytten’s collection for Dior?
I personally thought it lacked the usual finesse and refinement of John Galliano’s previous collections for the House of Dior. There were too many ideas, too many concepts, but new beginnings for Dior nonetheless.
Bill, who worked for John for many, many years, was recently named as Creative Director of the John Galliano brand.
