My Favorite Picks From Spring Fashion 2016

Fashion spring 2016 Marchesa

Floral dresses in soft pastel hues come to mind when I think of spring fashion.  Recently, Haute Couture Fashion Week was held in Paris from January 24th to the 29th.  The designers unveiled their spring collections that were diverse from one designer to the next with each piece of garment being unique, handmade and one of a kind.  My two favorite collections were Giambattista Valli and Ralph and Russo.  In addition, Marchesa RTW spring 2016 collection from New York fashion week was also a favorite.  The selected pieces from these three collections could be described with adjectives such as voluminous, dreamy, extravagant, beautiful and enchanting.  The gowns had sweeping trains and layer upon layer of tulle and feathers meticulously sewn on. Each one was like an art piece to be admired and be inspired by, and I hope you will be too.
