Heart-trending: couture 2011

…isn’t everyone? Despite some claims to the contrary, reports have shown that the market for couture is actually increasing in areas other than the US, such as the Middle East – now is when you move to Dubai. For fall, designers toned down their collections somewhat (qualifying that statement majorly) into pieces that women can wear more regularly than they used to. To me the looks seem as fanciful as ever, but I’m not going to red carpet events on a weekly basis! Either way – you can still appreciate the beauty and craftmanship painstakingly put into each of the items.

(Givenchy – my favorite. Look at those two gowns! Astounding.)
