It’s hard to believe there has been such a buzz around the two-bride finale at Chanel’s Spring 2013 Couture show yesterday when, after all the years of couture shows, we can confidently say “we’ve seen wilder.” The Haute Couture collections are a designer’s chance to show off their team’s handiwork – literally. Every stunning creation you see on a couture runway is hand stitched! While Haute Couture is all about creating clothes with an insane attention to detail and craftsmanship, it is also a place for designers to let their imaginations run wild. Such High Fashions are like works of art – both visually stunning and conceptually challenging. From jewel-encrusted face masks to skirts large enough to hide small children, these pieces are things of fantasy with absolutely no concern for practicality. No matter how impractical, we can’t help but dream about stepping out of the house with a giant golden lamp shade on our head – oh, the glamour of it all! So without further adieu, we present you some of the most over-the-top, wildly wonderful and just-plain-wacky couture moments!
