Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition
This limited edition is all about modern femme fatale elegance. We see it the fabrics, lace, velvet and a sophisticated side thanks to the knitted jumpers.
Pink, red and basic symbols are an example of the modernism presented at the show.
A secret garden was the scenery at the first couture collection by Maria Grazia Chiurri, and of course, sheer pieces were part of it. What I liked the most were the headpieces.

Under the name of Metamorphosis of Atelier the collection displays a variety of textures included Swarovski crystals creating jewel-like elements.
When we think about couture, Valli is one the first names we can think of because of how extravagant each dress is. This time we had a variety of floral prints and fluffy gowns.
Ralph and Russo
Another duo that has become a staple at such week. The highlight was the bridal finale with the one and only Alessandra Ambrosio.
A maison we need to keep an eye on. In one show we could see classic couture gowns, sheer exotic models and even party-wear dresses.
A first timer at Couture week with a marked punk/gothic inspiration.
I forgot about this one yesterday, an I was missing so much. When you see it, you think about couture, everything is so detailed. I would say that the crucial element are the complete embroidery's. As regards the shapes, they are not so classic either as we have capes and off-the-shoulder. A trend we need to keep in mind are ruffles.
I had so many expectations on this presentation. I believe that what attracts me more are the colourful drawings. Colors can do a lot more than what you think, it´s a visual technique. What´s more, each drawing is embroidered!!!
The best Chanel I´ve seen in years. The classic couture colors, pink, white, silver... A lot of embroidery as we in the first dress that is completely embellished. I would also highlight the shape of their classic suits. For the first time, they are quite classic. As regards accessories, hats seem to be making a comeback.
Remember what I told you above about ruffles? Well, this collection took it to the extreme. Another element about it are the variety of vibrant colors.
Soft colors all over the runway. The most delicate embroideries. And the most precious sheer fabrics. A synonym of couture.
When orange takes over the runway...
Always ready for a glamorous night out. As usual, Vauthier is couture with a night twist.
What can you expect from MMM? Well, the neutrals plus red is a brands staple.
OMG! OMG! OMG! This season I would highlight the delicate embroideries (that we´ve see before) but specially the head pieces, that from what I read it´s an ode to Arab women.
Jean Paul Gaultier
The spotlight is on the finale by Coco Rocha.
Boulevard of Broken Dreams is the name of this collection inspired on picking fragments and put them back together.
One of the first thing you notice are the fireworks embroidered on some of the fabrics. Apparently they were an inspiration for the collection.
Clean and straight lines in white tones are a great part of the collection. We also see the different prints created with ruffles as seen on the first dress. Another must of the collection are sheer fabrics with floral prints and embroidered.
Last but not least we have Russian disigner Ulyana Sergeenko with her Cirque d´Hiver.
