Each season, Haute Couture almost always showcases fascinating looks that are painstakingly assembled where designers are constantly pushing the boundaries. This time was no different.

At Viktor & Rolf, white shirts acted as a canvas for larger-than-life Picasso paintings that towered over the heads of modelt. Calling garments walking sculptures, the collection showcased wearable art, literally!

The Armani Privé runway saw ultra-feminine waves and ruffles in sheer weightless organza.  Mauve dominated the runway along with shades of violet, lavender and silver.

Chanel’s eco-inspired outdoor show was nothing less than spectacular. Along with the Karl Lagerfeld’s signature tulle and tweed, the collection included structured silhouettes with wood chips and discs.

On the other hand, Atelier Versace’s show featured colorblocking and cutout gowns with braided bodices as against more traditional couture silhouettes.

Jean Paul Gaultier recreated the 80’s discotheques and its fashion with bright colors, head-to-toe embellishments, power shoulder and oversized coats.

And at my personal favorite, Elie Saab, India was the backdrop to showcase true opulence and extravaganza. The collection saw everything from Salwar Kameers and Nehru collar to Lehengas and Sarees. Watch the show here –
