Haute Couture Fashion Week Spring 2008 round up

There was a fantastic display of colour from Christian Lacroix Spring 2008 Couture collection, ranging from apple greens, vivid pinks, royal blues and regal reds.

The running theme in this collection were the zebra print shoes and fantastic ombre stockings, which I will not be on the hunt for this Spring.

I would hope to see the second set of dresses on the red carpet. I can picture a post-pregnant Cate Blanchett and Dita Von Teese in any of those.

The majority of this Givenchy Spring Couture collection was quite masculine, but I have only shown the more feminine side.

Red seems to be a much chosen colour by all the designers this Couture Fashion Week and it continues here with Riccardo Tisci creating a stunning red dress that was made for Dita Von Teese.

The other highlight was the dress with a skirt made of ostrich feathers in pastel shades of green, yellow and pink.

There was an underwater aquatic mermaid type theme to Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring 2008 Couture collection.

There were fish-scale print gowns, navy and white sailor-striped caftans, and a jumpsuit made out of gold scales, which JPG sent down the runway with a wet sponge.

I particularly liked the feathered black strapless gown.
