Christian Dior Haute Couture AW 2016/17

Dior may be in the process of replacing Raf Simons but in the meantime the show must go on and it certainly did in true style for the Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016/17 collection. The show took place at Dior's headquarters on Avenue Montaigne, a perfect venue which was white, airy and light to form a most suitable backdrop for the all black and white collection. A string quartet added to the ambience as they provided the soundtrack to the fashion show.

The collection was extremely elegant, with long slim lined outfits, both longer lengths and modest mid lengths finished off with flat ribboned sandals. Makeup consisted of heavily made eyes with a natural hair style.

For most if us, we will not be dressing in haute couture any time soon but don't stop dreaming. Take 10 minutes out at the end of your stress filled day or if you have 10 minutes to kill at lunch time, embrace the world of fashion and lose yourself to the otherwise mundaneness of everyday life.
