Fashion: Haute Couture by John Galliano for Maison Margiela The 'Artisanal' Show 2015

The return of John Galliano was much anticipated and did not disappoint in the Artisanal Show by Maison Margiela. Haute couture at its finest looking fresh out of a dream world or a high fashion nightmare that us regular people will never have an encounter with. The color palette of blacks, creams and reds floated down the runway in Paris with dramatic make up by Pat McGrath and hair by Eugene Souleiman. I hope that someday I'll be able to go to couture fashion week. Although the designs may seem outrageous and extreme you can't help but find the beauty of the design process and the unbelievable way of coming up with the design in the first place. Its always unexpected and special. Sometimes during fashion week the shows become a blur and blend into a few category themes, but not haute couture! Its truly an art to be admired....

More Details about the Artisanal Collection
A process of discovery, returning to one’s roots. Piece by piece, deconstructing and constructing a new story for Margiela. A deep commitment to the extraordinary possibilities of the Maison’s Atelier and the art of Haute Couture. Approaching tailoring, techniques, craftsmanship like a new explorer, or painter. One who sees beauty in things that are often taken for granted, giving everything a newly enriched life. A powerful and fierce yet refined mix of fabrics and materials. Stripped down, or reborn together in startling and unexpected ways. New direction given with play on proportion and sartorial rules. Languid, sweeping. Precise tailoring. A new fuller, revealing silhouette. Eyes wide open in wonderment to a veritable Cabinet de Curiosités. A jigsaw of lacquered shells reminiscent of Arcimboldo style figures. A miniature battalion charging across a black velvet shoulder. Pearls that bring teardrops of memories to the face. Looking through the glass, discovering an elusive, rare even arrestingly strange new beauty, of muses who nonchalantly arouse your senses. The Finale of Toiles. The Cabine marching in honest testimony of the process, the trials and errors, the time and emotion behind each cut, each line, each vision.

A world deep in its past but with promises of the future.
