Botanically Haute!

Nature, Art & Haute Couture!

The botanical garden that grew on a Paris runway splashed with exotic colours and artistic creation of flowers made into frocks out of sumptuous fabrics such as, silk taffeta's, satin, chiffon, tulle etc....

 I  have gathered Dior's 2010 collection that I really like, combined them with images taken last summer (which I think), create a good story line.   One would ask why 2010 while it is a new season, well, time has no effect on me, as I am more about style and design.

I like how John Galiano,  (former designer of Dior) embraced the idea of Dior's first collection (Carolle Line) that was later on known as the New Look in 1947.  What stood out about the "New Look" was the enormity of scale and proportion of frocks.  Christian Dior used expensive fabrics lavishly to create a pyramid like silhouette, others described it as an hourglass look.
