Christian Dior Spring 2013 Haute Couture

Raf Simons, designer of Dior, said of his second couture collection, “I wanted it to literally be about the season—to be about the very idea of spring.” True to his word, the show was indeed an ode to spring bloom, a celebration of flower power.

While Paris lay under a thick blanket of snow, Simons presented his collection in a lush green garden under a reflective erected tent, created by landscape-design firm Wirtz International. 

The collection stared with the presentation of 1950s style, shapes and lengths migrating to asymmetrical lengths.In a vibrant and youthful color palette of jonquil-yellow, bright orange, lilac, green, bright orange, burgundy and navy, the collection featured gown with a lustrous skirt, body hugging tuxedo suits, asymmetrical silk cocktail dress, meadow flowers scattered over a black net bustier , shaped jackets with elaborate seams  , peplum, ballet length dresses, horizontally layered garments in different fabrics, transparent tulle gloves and appliqués .Fabrics like organza, silk, satin and gazar completed the spring story of this sophisticated collection.
