This Is How You Do Haute- Couture part II


In a bold move, Riccardo Tisci has shunned the catwalk and opted for a showroom style viewing at one of the opulent rooms in his temporary residence, Hotel d'Evreux, which used to belong to Madame de Pompadour. Tisci let out his inner gold studded and heavily embellished fashion rebel self by deciding not to present haute-couture in the traditional way but to make it more exclusive by only showing it to people he deems important enough. This way, he claims, resources could be used to present an even more exquisite collection. Inspired by Frida Kahlo and the Mexican festival Day of the Dead, the were only 10 looks presented. Some dresses painstakingly took 1600 hours of hand stitching, beading and embroidery, this collection should definitely not be judged by it's quantity.
