The Couture 2015 runways featured everything from elaborate feather and bejewelled detailing, to 3D embellishments. Designers such as Elsa Schiaparelli, Ulyana Sergeenko, Valentino and Dior, revealed collections which were exceptionally beautiful, and highly creative.
2. Nature-Inspired Prints
Nature-inspired prints were a major trend at the Couture 2015 runways. We watched floral motifs, butterflies, palm leaves and other character inspired prints in various shapes and types across the runways of Chanel, Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior and Valentino.
Designers and fashion fans have favoured these prints because they’re fun and feminine, this year couturiers centered on 3D florals blending them with sheer and bold separates. It is the ideal print to wear to a wedding, to a day at the races or a summertime party.
3. Full Skirts
Full skirts proved popular on the runways of Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior and Schiaparelli. The chic shape makes the full skirt the perfect garment for the night and day wear, and because this fashion is universally flattering, it’s loved by women of all shapes and sizes. This is 1 item that is likely to bring a ladylike touch to every outfit.
4. Bright and Bold Maxi Coats
Maxi coats proved to be the popular fad, they were observed on the runways of Viktor & Rolf, Stephanie Coudert, Dior, Ulyana Sergeenko and Jean Paul Gaultier. These stylish coats will not just keep you warm in the warmer temperatures but will also have you looking chic — detract from the traditional black and white colors to the vivid and bold oxblood, orange and sea foam hues.
5. Plunging Necklines
Finally, one of the more enchanting tendencies emerging from Couture 2015 shows was plunging necklines, as seen on the runways of Ulyana Sergeenko, Valentino, Alexandre Vauthier and even on glitsy dresses by Elie Saab and Elsa Schiaparelli. Plunging necklines varied from striking subtle, but the appealing thing about this neckline is the fact that it pulls the eye downwards, producing the illusion of length and elongating the entire body. Just remember; never leave home with no boob tape and lots of confidence.
