Magna Carta Holy Couture

Fall 2013 Couture Paris Fashion Blue Icy Model Skinny
Couture shows paint a whimsical picture of a fashion fantasy world where there are no rules, no judgement and avant garde is an understatement. It’s extravagant, it’s sleek, it’s emotional, it’s “no one will ever wear that,” it’s “did they really just go there?” They go there. Step in to a couture show and you see art take form and march full speed ahead at you in 6″ Louboutins down a gilded runway. The audience is left breathless and begging for more. 
While there are multiple couture shows held around the world, the mecca of all shows is held in Paris, France from June 30th to July 4th. This year, designers such as Christian Dior, Valentino, Versace, Chanel, and Jean Paul Gaultier showed us exactly what makes them the genius, iconic powerhouses of the fashion industry. 
As I write this, I’m listening to Jay-Z’s recently released album, Magna Carta. I can’t help but compare the luscious, yet commanding beats of his already platinum album to the mesmeric appeal of the fall collections. Like Magna Carta, the Fall 2013 collections featured something for just about everyone. What I’m loving about this year’s looks are the futuristic, Jetson-like designs (FINALLY it feels like 2013), uber-tailored cuts, antithetical texture pairings, and extreme color. 
It may be years before you see these looks hit a store near you, but despite their extravagant nature, couture shows set the stage for where fashion is headed. For those craving it now, you can emulate some of these looks with my suggestions on how to do couture runway the real way.
In the spirit of Magna Carta, behold…the Holy Grail of fashion.
