Givenchy Haute Couture Fall Winter 2012

Most of the time I look at fashion show images and read about fashion weeks and think “Thank GOD I am not there.” The stress of going from one show to the next, wearing towering heels and praying you look good enough, waiting for shows to begin, making long treks for 20 minute exhibitions of clothing that most people cannot afford, just does not appeal to me. But then I see a show like this, and I wish I was there. The photos do not do justice to the detailing, which I would love to touch and see up close. This Givenchy couture show looks pretty amazing, but I quite sure if you were investigating these garments up close, they would be beyond amazing, they would be spectacular, breathtaking, and incredible.

I love…

some damn fine handwork on this top. I would like to see this up close. And nice dog, too!

a very regal, beautiful dress.

this elegant mix of textures.

a great way to show off back.

And p.s. Well done to Tisci for putting a proper dog on the “catwalk”, not those silly little mini dogs you often see parading next to models.

    I think he’s THE DESIGNER now, he does brilliant collections and I was really captivated by the couture show this season. Last season was strong as well, but this season.. wow.

    I was getting a bit bored of his all white collections, but he has stepped things up a bit, and I love that the collections are all still very small, featuring front and back shots, and modelled by all non-white girls.

    I’m so in love with this collection in so many levels! The back of the last dress is just plain wonderful, and so are most of the details of the different outfits.

    It also reminds me of something they might have showed in Game of Thrones…
