The Best Looks from Fall 2015 Couture - Runway Trends

The fall couture runways from Paris are held around the first week of July, and they are all about Haute Couture. Held from July 5th to July 9th this year, it is a time when the Paris runways shed all inhibitions and the designers get the free will to create attires that do not have to be commercially viable. 2015 runway trends are all about these unrestrained dreams of the shackle breaking designer.

Let’s witness 2015 runway trends of the Fall Winter Paris Haute Couture week through the shows of some of the leading fashion designers:

5th July: 

Atelier Versace – Donatella Versace went surprisingly soft and romantic for this fall couture 2015. The overall collection had a disintegrated look. Blacks, greys, softer hues like mauve, light purple, sage and blue, and some printed combinations in chiffon swept the runway with frayed hemlines and floral headbands. The signature hard silhouettes of Versace were still visible through structured corsets under chiffon and chain-mail blended with chiffon. 2015 runway trends of Versace brought in the un-veiling of its tough look with softer fluid fabrics and colours.

6th July:

Christian DiorRaf Simons took inspiration from Bosch’s painting ‘The garden of earthly delights’ to put up a heavenly show for fall couture 2015. Simons brought contrasts to the show; he presented pristine white angelic light flowy fabrics and demonic flared and caped black ensembles.

Sleeves were a highlight in the show with large overhanging bell structures, trim highlighting or the contrasting one sided sleeve. The Dior 2015 runway trends also included side-baring dresses fastened with jewellery links.

7th July:

Chanel – The show was set against the backdrop of a casino. The interesting thing about how Karl Lagerfeld gave a twist to the 2015 runway trends was the use of 3-D laser computer printers to create flawless quilted mesh jackets.

The show was more about jackets that went from boxy to form hugging, short waist lengths to longer loose knee lengths. The jackets were paired with skirts. The second half of the Chanel show was all about “evening” with more feminine outfits.

Top Looks from Deepika Padukone - Deepika Padukone Style

The lyrics went “Aankhon mein teri, ajab si ajab si adayein hain...." and Deepika Padukone found a place in the hearts of Bollywood fans with her debut in ‘Om Shaanti Om’.

Filmfare is the equivalent of Oscars in Bollywood. Deepika wore a white dress with a fitted embroidered top attached to a long ruffled train behind and the dress was short ahead. Deepika managed to pull this risky look effortlessly. She took over the stage in her Ashi Studio dress shaking legs with the hosts of the event.

2. Filmfare awards, 2014
Deepika donned a metallic gold gown by Gaurav Gupta which looked like golden strokes painted on see-through fabric. Completing the look with side wept soft curls and pointy golden shoes; the dress was a lesser skin show version of Victoria Harvey’s dress. 

3. Filmfare awards, 2013

Deepika Padukone style for this event was a black gown by Prabal Gurung, with sheer panels at the right places, accentuating her waistline and long legs. She kept the look minimalistic with just bold red lips.

4. Cannes, 2010

For the “On Tour” premiere at Cannes, 2010, an ivory and gold saree by Rohit Bal, with blingy blouse, clutch and matching cuff was the Deepika Padukone style statement. Complete with a Bindi and gold and pearl ear-danglers, she looked great.

5. "Chennai Express" Promotions, 2013

7. Big Star Entertainment Awards, 2013

Deepika Padukone style for this event was a classic simple strappy white top with long flowing black skirt and the highlight was the emphatic necklace she sported. High tied ponytail and red lips with black peep-toe heels go well with this look.

8. Colours Screen awards, 2012

The emerald green Gauri and Nainika dress Deepika wore for the event fits her like a glove. The dress is very structured with high neck in the front and daring low-back behind. The ruffles behind add drama to the form hugging outfit. A side hair braid with gemstones dangling earrings and white clutch speak volumes for Deepika Padukone style.

Deepika wore a knee length quirky printed dress by Pankaj & Nidhi. Matching it with orange pumps and a skull necklace, don’t you think Deepika Padukone style is all thumbs up!
