Couture Week is slowly coming to an end and with that a showcase of pure luxury. The fashion houses’ on the schedule each explored diverse avenues in which to exhibit their skill and craftsmanship, showing that luxury fashion knows no limits.   

The setting alone was impressive at the Dior show: a towering structure of multi-coloured glass panels was erected at the Rodin Museum gardens, making for a stunning backdrop for the Haute Couture collection. Inspired by Flemish painters, Raf Simons balanced the past with the present for Autumn/Winter 15, resulting in a very romantic collection.

Giambattista Valli
The Giambattista Valli show was a celebration of sparkle and flounces, with a series of sumptuous dresses. Starting with monochrome looks, followed by intricate floral patterns before closing statement organza gowns, the collection was a tribute to femininity. 
Chanel immersed its guests, including a whole roster of celebrities, into the world of an Art Deco casino for its Couture show. Models all wore cropped black wigs, whilst the looks were very much in line with the fashion house’s heritage: twinsets, pearls and tweed were all key pieces of the Chanel show.   
Armani Privé
Black may have been the canvas for the collection, but Autumn/Winter 2015 was all about colour at Armani Privé which referenced Elsa Schiaparelli. In a collection entitled ‘Shocking’, eveningwear was given a twist with velvet, beading and feathers in a range of hues from purples and greens to pinks and blues.
Once again Couture Week proved to be a joyful celebration of luxury fashion, from Giambattista feminine collection to Dior’s extravagant backdrop.
