Couture Fall '09-Christian Dior

YAY. THIS is what couture should be like! This collection was a visual feast from start to finish, like gorging on a huge box of extremely expensive and delicious chocolates-the dresses were decadent and delicately crafted and strongly reminiscent of the original Dior New Look, but with great modern twists like the leopard print which appeared on a few dresses. I also like the styling choices-often a jacket would be worn only with heels and stockings, to show it off to its utmost. For this reason some of the looks are less immediately wearable but the craftsmanship here is exquisite and revived my belief in couture designers-I had thought they'd all lost their sense of show, but Galliano has proved me totally wrong.
