Christian Dior Fall Couture 2012

A series of rooms, in a Parisian venue, were blanketed with over a million luscious flowers . . . the scene was impeccably set for Raf Simon‘s debut collection for Christian Dior. Full skirted and shortened peplum gowns were paired with cigarette pants, long length dresses were simply monochromatic and modern, retro shapes were shaped in watercolor-like silk prints, and Stephen Jones veils covered vibrantly hued, wing-tipped eyes and bright red lips. A wonderful beginning to a seemingly perfect fairy tale, n’est pas? Check out the rest of the collection here and see how it all came together in the video below.

    That’s not very eco-friendly, is it? All those flowers will go to garbage the day after.

  14. The video is amazing and the pictures from the show are breathtaking! It’s a bit sad that over a million flower blossoms had to loose the lives though…

    I LOVE this! It is so stunning and incredibly creative. To be honest, I can’t stand the regular, boring runway shows, if fashion is art, it has to be presented in a way that it feels so. This would be like walking into Wonderland, incredible.

    It’s a little mind blowing what’s involved behind the scenes to create it, but it allows you to appreciate more!
