An impressive setting, the space itself was held amongst segments of crumbled French monuments; an appropriate backdrop for one of the most prominent current symbols of French patrimony, the Haute Couture collections. Stephen Rolland has been a member of the syndicate de la Haute Couture...

un moment avec Lee Paris, France In the broad sense, Haute Couture can really go one of two ways: embellished or structured. Stephane Rolland proved again in his Summer 2012 Couture collection that he is a master of structure and shape. To celebrate his 10th collection, the designer needed...

Haute Couture collection by French designer Stephane Rolland presented Tuesday, July 5, featured a great spectacle – the models were sent down the catwalk entirely gothed out. Models walked the runway of black colour during the Fashion Week Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2011/2012 in Paris. The...

Susan Tabak home Last season, I went to see Giovanni Bedin's haute couture collection for The House of Worth for the first time. As you may recall, it was all about corsets (paired with tutus) and, as a contemporary collection, it was a little difficult to understand. But this time, I saw a...

The dramatic, modern yet traditional haute couture collection by Jean Paul Gaultier may start a few trends which will not be seen until at least the fall 2012, or perhaps later, ready-to-wear runway collections. Fashion savvy onlookers will wait with baited breath Jean Paul Gaultier haute...

It was a vision of lightness, overflowing with lace, tulle and chiffon–so feminine and full of glamour! This collection had everything I love most about Elie Saab in particular, and the Haute Couture in general. There's so little glamour left in the world, but Elie's a big believer, and I'm...

Couture, How I Remembered It - Armani Privé Haute Couture Fall 2011 Th thought this collection was really personal to me, I loved the dramatic forced idea that came through. It reminded me when I first got int fashion when I was 9 and I was watching a Valentino couture show. Super dramatic...

It's very difficult to explain the sheer craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into the only 10 looks of the Givenchy Fall 2011 Couture collection. Photos never do justice when we are talking hundreds of hours of fine handwork. The lightness and heavenly presence the collection...
