CHRISTIAN DIOR | Couture & The Pretty Dress

Cinched waists, diaphanous skirts, heavily tiered ball gowns, and billows upon billows of tulle mesmerized the guests at Christian Dior’s summer 2012 couture show. Models dressed in feminine silhouettes graced the runway with simple an subtle makeup and hair.

Head of creative direction for the fashion house , Bill Gaytten, demonstrated that pretty and feminine has a place in the world of haute couture and looking at these designs, I must agree!

It may be destined for autumn but Christian Dior‘s new designer Raf Simons breathed a spring-like breath of fresh air into his first collection for Dior. The former Jil Sander designer’s debut was watched by his contemporaries including Marc Jacobs, Donatella Versace, Diane Von Furstenberg, Riccardo Tisci, Alber Elbaz, Azzedine Alaïa and Christopher Kane from intimate salons festooned with flowers from floor to ceiling. The Belgian’s signature architectural simplicity was married with Dior’s iconic silhouettes and intricate couture techniques to create a vision that all will adore.
