Christian Dior Couture Collection, Fall 2014

RunwayMeet Sara K

You may ask what is haute couture? It’s French for high-end dressmaking, in other words luxury, designer custom made clothing. Unlike the Asian fashion world, word couture is used loosely, however in the western world only particular prestigious brands can name their collection at haute couture. Furthermore, on most occasions haute couture collections are specifically designed and constructed for the runway, much like an art exhibition. 

For many years Haute Couture has been seen on western runway, costing £££££ and rarely available to most but only the elite. A bit like buying a super car. You would only see couture pieces from some of the best designers in the world being worn by royalty or on the red carpet.

One of my all time favourite western couture designers has to be Christian Dior. Dior is one of the reasons l started following fashion at a very young age. I loved Dior’s vision, innovative techniques and Dior's ability to turn clothes into a piece of art. I was inspired at a young age l focused my GCSE art project around Dior's fashion. 

The collections and haute couture runway shows were always mind-blowing from the Egyptian in 2004 to…

Christian Dior Couture

avant-garde… 

The latest couture collection brings back subtle floral patterns, cream and white midi frocks, cream floral embroidered jumpsuits and long winter coats.

I was glad to see the best fashion creation fashion designers ever made for like me, waist belts which can make some look instantly slimmer.

what looks to be a 21st century twist on the 60/70’s fashion scene...

and more recently Dior showcased more modern, beautiful and elegant garments of the 21st century.

Today Christian Dior showcased there Autumn and Winter 2014 - 15 collection and l had to share with all my lovely readers because l could see some trends most British Asians would love wear.
