All the couture highlights from the week long shows in Paris...

11 July 2014

The master of theatrical fashion. History and glamour were combined effortlessly by Karl Lagerfield at his Chanel Haute Couture Show. Regal designs with a hint of Marie Antoinette glided down the catwalk in the Grand Palais, teamed with modern flat sandals with ribbon ties.

We saw pantaloons, caps and quiffs covered in sequins and crystals, A-line skirts and dresses in stunning greys, gold and blacks, as well as clever satchel bags that mimicked the 1980s trend. An elegant yet fun collection.

Haute Couture can be dated back as far as the 1700s and refers to the exclusive design and creation of custom fitted clothing. Each item is made intricately by hand, using unusual fabrics and specialised techniques. Designers jet in their best clients and celebrities line up in droves to see the collections, with designs selling at an average of £10,000.
