Christian Dior Couture Fall 2009

A very pretty portrait neckline with embellishments shown below.

A beautifully draped jacket.

This is a bubble skirt I really like. There are several in this collection, and they seem much more integrated into the whole than most skirts of this style do.

Great use of stripes.

A very pretty way of widening the shoulder. The detail below shows the interesting folds.

A very unusual jacket shape, with exposed darts on the collar.

Another multi-layer jacket with dotted tulle overlay on the inner layer.

A pretty asymmetric neckline.

An unusual bodice with almost a trompe l'oeil effect, and another cute bubble skirt.

Another beautiful bodice on this dress.

Isn't this skirt the most fun?

Giorgio Armani Resort 2010

Full cropped pants seem right for resort, but perhaps won't carry on through.

The same style does make a cute shorts silhouette.

Nice use of a large-scale print.

Chado Ralph Rucci Resort 2010

Here are those bell sleeves again.

Very pretty seaming details and I love the pockets.

Tied with a bow. How cute is this, and very wearable.

An iconic jacket shape.

Seemingly simple, yet with lots of intriguing and intricate details.

One of his favored dress shapes, but a bit more casual, and suitable for daywear.

Even more casual in feel, yet intricately constructed.

Faggotting with 'worms' for a very cute set.

So fresh looking. The pieced seaming is so pretty with this fabrication.

More obvious and possibly more impressive work, but ultimately, not as attractive.
