Valentino Ready-to-Wear Spring Summer 2012 outfit


I have drawn another outfit from the Valentino Ready-to-Wear Spring Summer 2012 Fashion Show. It’s a white outfit made up of a strapless top that is flared at the waist and loose trousers. It looks very well suited in order to be at ease, hide a little your belly and feel the sun on your bare shoulders.

Valentino Ready-to-Wear Spring Summer 2012 Fashion Show


When I saw the Valentino Ready-to-Wear Spring Summer 2012 Fashion Show, the first word that came to mind was ‘comfortable’. I feel like these outfits could make you feel at ease (and besides they have pockets).


This straightforward short white dress would highlight a thin waist thanks to its flared skirt.

This long and black strapless dress enhances any silhouette in my opinion. It’s the kind of dress you gladly take on holiday because you can wear it all day long, in the city as on the beach.

In short, I like these summer dresses’ easy to wear side.

Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring Summer 2011


I really like the Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring Summer 2011. The full skirt dresses inspired by the fifties have the advantage of being flattering on any silhouette. I especially enjoy the shadings of shimmering colors like this dress with round shapes that is shaded gray-blue to sky-blue.

The second dress I have drawn is a pale-yellow strapless dress with white embroidery. The dress is tutu-shaped thanks to a superposition of tulle petticoats.

A glove worn as a hat

Here is a picture from Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear fashion show. Top model Chanel Iman is wearing a fuchsia glove as a hat.

She is self-confident, as if it were normal to walk with a glove on her head. I think this is an excellent idea. It is possible to recreate it in order to give a touch of extravagance to an evening dress. Her glove seems to be attached to a headband.

However, after several fittings in front of my mirror, I would say that there is a chance to look ridiculous. See, this other model looks like she has had a giant seagull poop on her head. It’s a pity because I like the rest of her outfit : a black trenchcoat and a white scarf whose ends are glove-shaped.

Throughout the fashion show, the designers play with gloves. They have created glove scarves and glove belts. These accessorizing ideas are easier to apply – tie a scarf and matching long gloves.

Jean-Paul Gaultier, haute couture calligrapher

The Jean-Paul Gaultier haute couture Spring Summer ’09 collection was presented last winter. There were arabesques on black and white outfits. It looked as if a calligrapher had used an ink brush to draw the dresses’ patterns but also the model’s jewels and hairstyles.

On this dress I believe I can read “Jean-Paul Gaultier Paris”. The text is written on the bottom of the dress, on the veil behind the dress and on the leggings as well.

This other outfit is adorned with a magnificent three-dimensional arabesque. The same theme has inspired the intricate earrings and sophisticated hairstyle of the model.

I liked this graphic collection a lot. I have shown only two outfits but you can see the whole fashion show on Vogue and coutorture websites.
