Fall 2007 Haute Couture - the Top 10 Trends. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG

Because the Couture is somewhat less driven by direct financial concerns than is ready-to-wear, designers have more room to play with ideas - making it an insightful barometer of which trends have legs. For fall, there is a definite feel of girding up for battle, along with a simultaneous vein of escapism. By borrowing from various eras of history - Napoleon, the Roman Empire, the Jazz Age - we are better able to costume ourselves for all the various roles we play as we star in the movie that is life today.

The Top Ten Fashion Trends from Fall 2007 Couture:

  1. Clothing as Armour
  2. Costume History
  3. Controlled Volume
  4. "Done" Hair & Makeup
  5. Defined Waist
  6. Fur
  7. Ruffles & Lace
  8. Huge Heels
  9. Shades of Grey & Silver
  10. Prints & Surface Embellishment
