Latest from red carpet in Paris.

While most people in Northern Ireland have a holiday over the 12th I couldn't wait to catch up on the Fall/Winter 2014/2015 Couture.

Behind the scenes at Rami Al Ali Haute Couture Paris, lots of layers and lots of embellishment.
 It is brilliant to be able to keep up with what is the latest on the catwalks in Paris.

As Giorgio Armani hits 80 this year he also marks 40 years in fashion! Time flies when you are enjoying yourself! What better way to celebrate than with a fabulous presentation of the highest class.

While Lebanese designer Elie Saab took inspiration from Disney's popular movie Frozen with Princess Elsa as his muse. He had a fabulous collection of gowns in pale ice blue at sunrise. Long lace sleeves, tiny corsets, long trains embellished with crystals made for alluring glamour.

Another Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad took on art deco and futuristic themes for his F/W 2014/15 collection. Using hundreds and thousands on sequins and beads in vibrant jewel tones.

Zuhair Murad
While London based Australian couple ralph and Russo just blow my mind with their fabulous celebration of the Golden Age from the 1940's and 50's.
Check out the hat too!

The bead work  and the embellishment were superlative!
This is only their label's 2nd official presentation!! I just love all of their creations.

What's on trend 2014

I am working on a collection of dresses for the bride who wants a more informal, more personal and individual look as I feel that is the in coming trend. Girls want to look and feel fantastic and keep to and sensible budget for their dress. Grooms too are selecting to wear a ore casual suit than tails or formal wear.

Lots more lace on the way.

Idea for embroidery detail on the shoulders

Olivia Palermo wore shorts with a wonderful decorated skirt by Caroline Herrera & a cashmere jumper on her wedding day.
