The Paris Couture Fashion Week has gathered some of the most talented couturiers of the world who displayed their amazing artistic designs on the catwalks, designs that attracted attention like magnet. One of the designers that managed to wow the audience was Stephane Rolland, who’s amazing flowing creations exuded that haute-couture glamor while maintaining flowing lines which emphasized the soft feminine forms of a woman’s body.
The collection displayed an array of fantastically detailed dresses that simply dazzled on the catwalk. Clean shapes combined with flowing, silky draping fabrics created a certain angelic allure that was quite difficult to resist. Whether simple or featuring gold details, the dresses that caressed the floor as the models flaunted their bodies wearing high heel platform sandals, looked absolutely divine and drew instant smiles from the ‘hungry’ for fashion audience.
High slits, fringes, plunging and highly revealing cut out décolletages and amazing 3D details emphasized the powerful craftsmanship skills of the designer. Classic, elegant fabrics such as silk jersey, gazar and organza dominated the collection and helped emphasize the soft lines of the collection.
Adding a little bit of ‘je ne sais quoi’ to his collection, French couturier Stephane Rolland introduced color clashing fabrics as well as gold accessories under the form of metallic gold waistbands and ample bust accessories. Among the timeless black and white pieces, Mr. Rolland opted for vibrant hues such as vivacious pistachio green and fierce red, colors that gave a fresh yet powerful allure to the collection.
However, by far la ‘pièce de résistance’ of the collection was featured last by former supermodel Yasmin Le Bon. The amazing red dress featuring a long ruffled train and lacquered metal panel applications displayed on the bustier and stretching down to the front of the dress weighed nothing less that 100 pounds. The dress that stretched about 4.5 meters back, captured the attention of the public and was truly the essence of couture. To be able to stroll down the catwalk wearing the beautifully detailed dress, the model needed the help of two men which offered the beauty their arms for support.
