Haute Couture A/W 2005

Elie Saab

Some lovely gowns at Elie Saab. Some of the colour-concise pieces were a hit, with the tight sihouettes and great detailing. While others were pretty blah...

I absolutely adore this vavavoom red ensemble. The little lace trimming at the sleeves add that perfect feminine detail.

Just one of the many glamourous red-carpet-esque gowns on the runway. It was easy to go wrong with this piece, what with all the draping here and there, but it turned out elegant and sophisticated.

Ahh, no no no. This is like some curtain carelessly cut into a nightie.

Jean Paul Gaultier

A recollection of his spring/summer collection with the ethnic pieces and some that echoed the Hermes A/W collection. Very folkloric, with the braided hair and elaborate headpieces.

Smashing ethnic coat antithetic to the other austere pieces.

One of the many ethnic billowing gowns with typical JPG-style tiers.

Anne Valerie Hash

The models were transformed into graceful dancers on the runway, with delicate ballet slippers and sheer layers of chiffon impeccably tied and draped together. A very feminine and utterly romantic collection that reminds one of previous collections from Chloe.

A dreamy victorian ballerina.
