Paris Fashion Week commenced with a bang thanks to the Dior Couture show. Bill Gaytten appears to have taken the desired creative spot of John Galliano~ who everyone knows is undergoing an extremely negative time in the press of late due to his ongoing court case. Nonetheless (and on a brighter note!) the show was bursting with an aray of designs. We saw everything from pretty pastels, classic black& white shapes, stripes and lines to volumptous, flowing couture dresses. There was taylored jackets, dripping with metalic materials and paired with either flowing layered skirts or structered pleated midi's which were reminiscent of Louis Vuitton's 2010/11 Winter collection. These were teamed with a pop of green mint nails and strappy heels, tied at the ankle. All the controversy surrounding Dior's ex creative director were definately brushed aside, with this flamboyant collection. Cannot wait to see what the rest of PFW has to with~hold...!
