Paris Haute Couture SS16 Fashion Week

As you may or may not know, last week was Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016 Fashion week in Paris!  I *love* looking at the haute couture runways because everything is so pretty!!

I always like to pretend like I’m shopping for some glamorous event like the Oscars, and I like to choose which dress I would wear.

1- Giambattista Valli

Now, pay close attention to all of the details on all of these dresses – remember it’s all hand sewn, beaded, embroidered, etc…

The dress above and the following dresses are designed by Giambattista Valli.  He was inspired by the gardens of Paris and you can see that in these outfits!

What I love next about this collection by Schiaparelli is that the designer was inspired by food and table…. so the dresses have vegetables and china on them!

    How fun! Although I've never been a fashion diva, I do create refashioned garments and it is really inspiring to see what is going on in the fashion world. Helps me decide on colors, cuts, and prints for some of my creations. Thanks for sharing and for participating in the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop. Looking forward to seeing what you post next week! Nina @ Vintage Mama's Cottage

      Well, I can't say I'm a fashion diva either since I don't wear any of these creations, but I certainly love looking at them!
