What a Haute Week!

Starting on July 2nd, Paris, France is the scene kicking off the semi-annual Haute Couture Week.
Monday began day-one of the fall-winter 2012 previews and the fashion festive.

Haute couture is an artisan-based method of making clothes that dates back over 150 years.
And the highly expensive garments, shown in collections in Paris only twice a year, are bought by a core group of no more than 100 rich women around the world.
Designs from Christian Dior, debuting their latest designer and his designs, Raf Simons, were exploded onto the runway for all attendees to see; expressed with a back-in-time 1950’s and flowers theme. Raf Simons was did his homework, revitalizing his renowned signature of minimalist and linear styles to that of an exuberant showcase of floral expression silhouettes in 54 different ways.

Today’s (Tuesday, July 3rd) shows will include the fall and winter previews from Chanel and Armani Prive.
