• Haute Couture Inspired Fashion for Less

French and Italian designers have recently taken over the runways at Haute Couture Fashion Week showcasing all things couture. The one week of the year where all the best high-end fashion is celebrated all over the world. Much like the regular fashion weeks, the runway pieces are luxurious, lust worthy but most of all pricey! So we have gathered the best looks from Couture week 2015 and showing affordable alternatives.

Wearable Art

One of the stand out trends seen on the Haute Couture catwalks in Paris this year comes in the form of wearable art. Models were seen at Viktor and Rolf dressed head to toe in canvas style clothing, gliding down the catwalk draped in art. Looks like the designers were on a mission to prove that art and fashion go hand in hand. If you’re looking to wear something a little more creative this season we suggest these colourful art print dresses from She In and Karen Millen.

70’s Platforms
