Paris Fashion Week: Collette Dinnigan

Colette Dinnigans’ Fall 2012 Collection, appropriately dubbed ‘Fairy Tale’ went above and beyond expectations. From the romantic,custom lace to the ethereal silhouettes, she flawlessly brought us great glamour with the use of feathers, sheer fabrics, graceful draping and intricate beading.

The simple shapes left the focus on the fantastic sequin work that took on a 20’s feel with art deco inspired graphics. An appliquéd butterfly belt adorned some of her great pieces while pops of coral and red juxtaposed the more subtle nudes. Some of her statements pieces included a navy gown, with a fluidy satin skirt, a sheer topped, ostrich feather mini dress, and of course a rich velvety coat.
