The Scene at Chanel Haute Couture Fall Winter 2010-2011
Ahhh Chanel. The crown jewel of haute couture collections. Chanel is Chanel; it’s the grand-daddy of shows in Paris. I squealed with delight when the lovely folks at Chanel asked for my mailing address in Paris. I had no idea what they are about to send me. It could be anything, you know? Mailing list? Promotional material? A new fragrance? Lookbooks? Nope, they sent me my first haute couture show invitation. Although I’ve done the NY/Europe menswear and womenswear circuit for a few seasons, I’m still a couture virgin.
Bryanboy's First Ticket to the World of Haute Couture: CHANEL
My first ever ticket to the highly exclusive and wonderfully illustrious world of haute couture finally arrived today.
It's from the House of Chanel.
You have no idea how thrilled I am to be invited to the show. Haute Couture, as you know, is the pinnacle of fashion. It doesn't get any better than this. This is what we, fashion enthusiasts, live for!
Thank you so much to Chanel for extending me an invite. It truly is an honor and a privilege..
Christian Dior Spring Summer 2010 Haute Couture – FIRST LOOKS
With the lovely Tavi (sporting a pink Stephen Jones bow hat) sitting front-row, the editors over at British Grazia are not happy with their view at the Christian Dior haute couture show in Paris that's going on right this second.
Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2009 2010 Video
The video is out. As always, leave it to the House of Dior to put on a magical couture show. Everything is just perfect — the clothes, the intimate set, the amazing music and of course, models with bone-chilling, 102% pure couture poses that ooze ‘high fashion’.
As a child, I grew up thinking Dior is the pinnacle of haute couture. This was before I knew about all the other (and older) couture houses. Of course I now know better but Dior (and John Galliano) to me is very special. Would I be able to go to a Dior haute couture show in the near future? I don’t know. Will you, or some fashion angel, help me go to Dior couture someday? I hope so. In any case, I have a long way to go and I still need to pay my dues to the fashion gods. Either that, or, I need to win the lottery. Then I’ll spend it all on a spectacular Dior ball gown which I’ll wear on my deathbed when I’m 80 years old so my grandchildren would be able to say to everyone “Bryanboy died in Dior couture.”
