Last week the most fashionable of the world’s fashionable people gathered in Paris for Paris Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2017 Haute Couture.
Don’t know your fashion lingo? In comparison to Pret-a-Porter (also called “Ready to Wear”), haute couture is when designers create exclusive custom fitted designs. It’s regarded as an art form, and sometimes the clothing can be over the top extreme, with futuristic designs, interesting fabrics, and wild accessories.
This year, however, designers such as Chanel and Georges Hobeika kept it pretty, simple and delicate. With an overload of pastel colors–pinks, greens, purples–these designers created gorgeous looks that definitely made everyone ache for spring weather.
At the Chanel show, models walked in a room covered with mirrors at the Grand Palais in Paris showing off the classic Chanel suit paired with shiny silver heels, as well as glittering evening gowns in simple cream and pastel colors, interrupted every once in a while with a bright purple.
Georges Hobeika’s designs were simply stunning, with delicate beading and soft ethereal fabrics.
