La Folie d’Haute Couture Spring 2013








Anyone who follows me on Facebook knows that I have a page called “What were you thinking?” and so I thought that as a conclusion to my Haute Couture reviews, I might inject some of that humor, sarcasm, disbelief and shock into today’s post.

There is no doubt that the Haute Couture brings out one upmanship amongst designers who show in this short period of time. Everyone is pushing the envelope as well as pushing ateliers to accomplish the wildest of dreams and creations.  The designers are also challenging themselves to be as original as possible and to show their mettle when it comes to couture.  All of this in the quest to be taken seriously a world class designer on the rarefied stage known as Haute Couture.  As you see today, the best laid plans of mice and men can go very wrong!

There will be no finger pointing or name calling here, there will just be photos and if photos speak a thousand words, and then I offer to you at least 20, 000 words.

Have fun and while the end result may be the most outrageous and the most fantastical of designs, please remember the artisans who really did the heavy lifting here!
