From the mesmerizing to the breathtaking, Haute Couture Fashion Week is unlike any other event on the fashion calendar. Traditional runway standards, from the fashion to the beauty, are left behind in exchange for a more theatrical presentation.
Last week in Paris, some of the world's most iconic designers took to the runway to present their spring 2016 couture collections. The collections, which tend to push fashion to its very creative limits, open up a world of imagination for us fashionistas and fashionistos, a world of endless lace, stunning embellishments and over-the-top embroidery.
