That practically sold it to me as my favourite show because, for people who can't even dream of owning or wearing or buying one of these works of art, it's all about the entertainment factor. The worst thing is to get bored of an Haute Couture Collection.
The Autumn 2010 collection was nothing short of a floral treat. The show had beautifyl clarity that still shines through now, not only in the palette but in the delicate techniques. The shaping of flowers was mimicked in the fronding, the feathering, the beautiful ruching and the intricate ruffling. Delicate they may be in nature, but bold is in the veins of this collection with a coat like a huge inverted daffodil and a dress in black taffeta - hand-painted with pansies. I could not imagine anyone not being seduced by the jacket and skirt combinations like the jade mohair with portrait neckline over a petaled bubble of black organza or the white felt over lilac organza. Beautiful!
The headgear was fantastic too, created to look like a florist's wrap and adding further floral, and exotic, dimensions to the collection.
In an Edenic beautiful fashion world (bref, the sort of world I deserve to live in) this would be the daywear that would fully complement evening dresses of an extraordinary dimension—gigantic domes of tulle overlaid with gloriously coloured swags of organza (I LOVE ORGANZA - sorry, just thought I might say that)
Anyway, gorgeous collection and worth looking back at.
