Azzedine Alaïa Haute Couture | Paris Fall 2011 Couture

With a collection filled with intricate designs, impeccable tailoring and the stunning supermodels of the industry like Karlie Kloss and Arizona Muse, Azzedine Alaïa presented a gorgeous collection yesterday at Paris Fashion Week which left the audience in awe, with loud cheers and a standing ovation.  Being his first show in eight years, the Tunisian born designer,  who is described as the “King of Couture” built his collection with strong feminine silhouettes, utilizing fabrics like croc-leather, velvet and knit in his effort to beautify women. I am still swooning over the amazing designs which all have a clean and effortless finish to them, but are still each complicated in their own way. The shoes, alike the dresses, skirt suits, and dress-coats were all simply dazzling, having that Alaïa touch of glamour and craft to them. The show ended of course with his jaw-dropping evening gowns, which all had their own ‘edge’ as they were finished with ruffles and triangular leaf-like pieces embellishing them. Although the show was of high exclusivity, in that no one could have used iPhones or Cameras, it was said to be the best of the Haute Couture shows, and definitely ended the week in fine style. Check out my favorite looks from the show, along with the entire collection below.
