What Costume are you Wearing?

30 Oct

“Us men designers, we make costumes. Women designers make clothes” – from DVF interview

In light of Halloween, I thought it best to write about costumes and what better place to find costumes than at the Haute Couture Fashion Shows? Christian Dior has been a favorite of mine for couture, though I will probably never afford these items…but from the pictures and the stylings…it’s amazing! I mean, seriously, how can you create such beautiful garments? It’s like a work of art!

In the Fall 2009 Dior show, it seems John Galliano has taken inspiration from vintage lingerie and 1950s tailoring. In some of the photos, it’s like the models are missing a top…or a bottom for that matter. But in the end…it’s all about the lovely clothes and the wonderful details!
