Happy Friday my Loves! Wow, what a week it has been. Couture week is over and I wanted to share with you my favorite Runway Looks of the season. From Chanel's romantic floral pieces to Dior's strong monocrom collection. The debut from Clare Waight Keller with her very first Givenchy collection and incredible Valentino hat pieces, to name just a few highlights from Paris Haute Couture week Spring/Summer 2018. But have a look yourself and let me know which designer you inspired the most.
Haute Couture should be fun, foolish and almost unwearable.

French for "high sewing" or "high dressmaking" or "high fashion" is the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing. Haute couture is high end fashion that is constructed by hand from start to finish, made from high quality, expensive, often unusual fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finished by the most experienced and capable sewers, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques.
Couture translates literally from French as "dressmaking" but may also refer to fashion, sewing, or needlework - Fashion-Era and is also used as a common abbreviation of haute couture and refers to the same thing in spirit. Haute translates literally to "high". A haute couture garment is often made for a client, tailored specifically for the wearer's measurements and body stance. Considering the amount of time, money, and skill allotted to each completed piece, haute couture garments are also described as having no price tag: budget is not relevant.
