PFW Top Five

I couldn't let Paris Fashion Week fly by without a mention so here is my round-up of the final fashion week. What I liked the most about the catwalks of Paris was how the designers added their own twists. For example, Alexis Mabille re-worked the classic shirt in different ways such as a bodice (see picture) and floor-length dresses with trains. He truly thought outside the box, while remaining accessible. I'm not really into suits massively but I was impressed with Ricardo Tisci's Givenchy collection which featured alternative tailoring with fin-like shapes. 

There were a few designers that I felt disappointed with, although my judgement can only be made with pictures online. Hopefully one day I can appreciate the designers' craftsmanship close-up. Until then, I will leave you with these little snippets!
