Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda
For two years now, Haute Couture Fashion Week closes an exceptional weekend organized each year for the press and customers in a different location in Italy by Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda. 
This year, the designer duo invited us to one of the most beautiful and most charming islands in the world - Capri. At sunset, on the rocky Fontallina beach, guests who sat on the sun loungers and soft cushions scattered among the rocks while sipping champagne to the sound of Italian opera, were able to watch the breathtaking parade of boats with models presenting the collection. For the beginning – we could admire massive in volume dresses with hand- painted silk stripes and decorative velvet bustier. Then, there was a parade of designs and embroideries inspired by the Amalfi Coast, as well as the royal fur and even decorative royal jewelry. Only the duo of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana can capture the beauty and essence of Italy in such a wonderful way. 
Since the designers asked for the preservation of the privacy of this event we can’t post any photos of Instagram or Twitter. 
I’ll just add that this great show did not end the magical weekend organized by  Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda. After the show we could enjoy the dinner held in a tavern and admire the fireworks released from the water. The next day I visited the beautiful showroom and the day was finished by a truly Italian Dolce Vita party that lasted until dawn.

Christian Dior Fall/Winter Haute Couture 2014-2015

Christian Dior Fall/Winter Haute Couture 2014-2015
Unfortunately, because of the great delay of the plane, this year I did not make it to the Christian Dior show. I truly regret it, because the scenery of the show held in the park of Museum Rodin resembled a spaceship, which walls were fully covered with white orchids. However, thanks to the, courtesy of Christian Dior’s team  I was able to arrange a private viewing of the collection in the Christian Dior’s Haute Couture atelier. I had the opportunity to try on some of these amazing pieces designed by the brilliant Raf Simons. This year’s collection is a real journey back in time, through the ages of elegance of both the past and the future: from Marie Antoinette - inspired voluminous pannier dresses, subtly embossed jacquards, beautifully decorated with embroidery masculine French court attire inspired by the 18th century, flapper dresses of the 20’s, long trailing coats with fur and cashmere, the futuristic airline suits with embroidered with tiny flowers silk.  The collection was dominated by pastel colors of cream, celadon green and pale pink broken with gray and black. See it for yourself!!

Vanessa Paradis
Paris Haute Couture Week is not only the time of iconic fashion shows, but also the time of amazing events and fine exhibitions. One of the biggest attractions was the private concert of Vanessa Paradis – held on Paris Trianon - only for the friends of Chanel, including the Couturier Karl Lagerfeld.
Vanessa was dressed from head to toe in Chanel. She wore a see-through shimmering set from the Summer Couture collection during the first part of the concert and later on – a chiffon dress, inspired by the folk culture and presented recently as a part of the Resort collection during the fashion show in Dubai. Vanessa sang a mix of her greatest hits, including: “Joel le Taxi” and “Divine Idylle” along with the latest releases, sich as the soulful “La Chanson des Vieux Cons”.
