Chanel and Dior Couture Spring 2011

Is it just me?  Or is this Couture Fashion Week, completely jaw dropping!!  The Fashion Gods have rained upon the Spring 2011 collections!  Models are gracing the runways in some of the most exquisite pieces... feminine and pretty, pastels, embellishments, bows, beading, ruffles and intriquite detailing.  And where to begin.. perhaps with a little Chanel and Dior?  This Chanel collection is one of my favourites.  Mr Lagerfeld, always manages to astonish audiences, but this time, he has sent me into a complete fashion frenzy!  The collection is pretty and delicate, the models surprisingly wore flats and I love his use of pastels.  Lagerfeld wanted the collection to be pretty and natural he "was sick of all those Eiffel Towers, sick of all those violent colours."   
When it comes to a Dior Couture collection.. expect the unexpected!  The master himself Mr Galliano created a gorgeous and elegant collection inspired by Dior's  'New Look' 1947 collection.  The collection originally symbolised a new era in feminiety with extravagant full skirts, gloves and small waistlines.
