Haute Couture is arguably one of the most extravagant events that take place in Paris and mark the beginning of Women’s Fashion Week across the globe. Show stopping dresses making headlines and taking over our social media feeds are leaving us gasping for air, especially after a glance at the pricetag of these remarkable creations of fashion. You can also check out our article - What celebrities wore to Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.


Schiaparelli

Elsa Schiaparelli’s uncle Giovanni Schiaparelli discovered a series of channels, scoring the surface of Mars, and was the director of the Brera Observatory, in Milan. With that, she had an unhidden interest in Astrology which she often referenced through her work. This alien aesthetic is the inspiration for the Spring/Summer couture collection designed by Daniel Roseberry.

It’s “a study in contradictions — of legacy and the avant-garde, of the beautiful and the provocative, of the earthbound and the heaven-sent. The result are a series of profiles both familiar and not — part human, part something else. And, therefore, totally Schiaparelli. “ - Daniel Roseberry.


Vaishali S

Vaishali S Couture Spring-Summer 2024 is a celebration of freedom of expression and individualism. Three seasons ago Vaishali became the first Indian woman invited to showcase at Haute Couture Week in Paris, and her work has become a strong turn point in this cycle.

This new season is the realisation that there is no distinction between nature and human, human is a part of nature, and this is shown through the gowns which remind us of foliage, intricately cut and sewn into fabric which beautifully curves around the body.


Dior

Artist Isabella Ducrot’s installation, Big Aura, adorns the walls of the room hosting the presentation of the Dior haute couture collections in the Rodin Museum gardens.

The designer decided to trace aura through the House’s haute couture history which embodies the essence of fashion and ultimate excellence. The La Cigale dress – designed by Christian Dior for autumn-winter 1952 – evokes the sacredness of the Atelier through its sculptural construction and moiré fabric, thus becoming the starting point for a theory that recontextualizes couture. A fragile boundary between art and life. Black velvet dresses sublimate the look, flowing in motion, while a sumptuous feather cape rests on an embroidered double organza dress. The embroidery is like fragments of ancient poems unearthed, leading the imagination to meander.

Alexis Mabille

Departing from his usual vibrant jewel tones, Mabille delved into a refined colour palette featuring ivory, ballet pink, beige, moiré bronze, and brown, with strategic accents of black and red for added dramatic flair. This understated array of hues served as a backdrop for Mabille's intricate embellishments, showcasing all-over tone-on-tone embroideries, sequins, ostrich feathers, and his iconic oversized bows.

The runway presentation commenced with a series of architectural gowns, characterized by meticulous tailoring and captivating draping. Crêpe and satin were skilfully transformed into sculptural masterpieces, gracefully embracing the female figure. The collection exuded elegance and charm, enhanced by asymmetrical necklines, billowing puff sleeves, and delicate lace embellishments that infused a sense of whimsy and romance.
