Chado Ralph Rucci Resort 2009 RTW

A sporty looking set.

A top with volume.

A beautiful collar on this lovely suit.

Pintucks or topstitching gives this a modern look.

A very Oriental effect in a stiff woven.

A great dress in the Claire McCardell vein.

A simple dress in a unique fabric.

Nobody does perfectly simple like Rucci.

John Galliano Resort 2009 RTW

Cute print and a nice, swingy skirt.

We're seeing a lot of this top style lately.

Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Fall 2008

A really intriguing ensemble with a cropped jacket with oversized faggotting and a ruffled top.

Amazing pleating on this coat. See detail below.

Unusual details, such as a metal lapel mesh a la Whiting & Davis, and a really nice mesh scarf with pearls.

A tour de force with bias tubing. Herringbone Battenburg in effect.

I rather like all the little straps with the top showing beneath.

Interesting coat with what looks like another metal mesh for the midriff section.

I love this knitted piece! Shades of the White Queen Through the Looking Glass.

Very Orientale smoking jacket with metal mesh harem pants.

Beautiful lace skirt and peplum.

Beautiful draping on the bodice.

Anne Valerie Hash Couture Fall 2008

Lovely pintucking which controls the shaping.

More pintucks and what a cute sleeve, which you can see below.

Such an interesting silhouette with the high-waisted, full coat and the skinny satin leggings.

Interesting folds on this sheath.
