This years Fall 2010 Couture Catwalk has beaten every other catwalk collection this season alone. Couture designers such as Valentino, Elie Saab, Chanel, Armani Prive and much more graced us with beautiful works of art with every model that walked on the runway, taking us into another fantasy land. The look for Chanel’s collection was themed towards a heavyweight daywear meets Byzantine-inspired sundower dresses. Some colours included dark palette of camine red, espresso, inky blue, faux nude, and aqua blue. Some details on the runway, notched v-necklines, asymmetric buttons, embroidery, floral appliqués and crystal beading. Main accessory were jeweled cuffs and buckled metallic belts.


Elie Saab’s beautiful collection was themed around ballgowns, and Oscar winners and all those that tread the tapis rouge (red carpet). Some key items in the collection included one-shouldered dresses, thigh-split skirts, and full-skirted gowns with layers of semi-sheer for light touch. Trims seen in the collection included heavy and elaborate beadwork, all-over sequins, paillettes, floral embroideries on sheers and goddess drapes.

Jean Paul Gaultier’s look themed towards art deco vamp, complete with red lips, and smokey eyes. Silk, satin charmeuse, cashmere knits, Chantilly lace and velvet fabrics were used. Trims included pleated leather, feather fringes, black sequins, all-over paillette patterns and fur trims.

Christian Dior resembled a hothouse bouquet inspired by nature, still-life photography and flowers. Key items included fitted jackets, ruffled necklines, and dramatic red-carpet gowns. Vibrant brights such as daffodil yellow, cornflower blues, poppy red, fuchsia pink, cool aqua tones and sharp contrast of black and white were used in the collection.

Giorgio Armani Prive’s collection reminded us of the iconic 1970s Charlie Girls. Key items in the couture show pantsuits, cape-sleeved sheath dresses, and skirt suits with flared peplums. Details and trims included all-over sequines and pailletes, polished wood buttons, leather buckles at the neck, three-dimensional beaded domes, and brooch-like fastenings with gold-horns.

  1. I love Jean Paul Gaultier. I’ve been following him since his his collection for the movie 5th Element. The all black outfit is inspiring!

    1. Wow i had no idea he worked on the 5th Element, thats one of my favorite movies! Thanks for sharing that! Love his work even more.

  2. Chanel – Chanel must be turing over in her grave
    Elie Saab – ladylike, feminine & classic
    Jean Paul Gaultier – pass on collection
    Christian Dior – too much ruffles & bunching.
    Giorgio Armani – ladylike, feminine & classic

  3. Blerona,

    If you ever get the opportunity, check out his website:

    A lot of his outfits are purely fantastic and some, however, there are some that you could get away with here in the city. I love his collections because it’s I imagine myself in the middle of a game, where I pick out the certain aspects and I would try to replicate or mix-match what I like. Aside from his collections, his accessories weakens me: I WANT IT ALL (^_^)

    One of the reasons why he’s infamous is due to how radical and unorthodox his pieces are. He did not attend fashion school and he was kicked out of a few fashion houses he’s joined. He has an acute love for mixing cultural styles and man-dresses, which I love as well.

    I’m glad you appreciate his style. Not many do.
