From John Galliano's exploration on decadence to Iris Van Herpen's kinetic dresses designed in collaboration with sculptor Anthony Howe, the rhapsodies of couture continues at Paris Fall 2019 Couture.


And here we chronicle the enchanting moments at Fall 2019 Couture:


Iris Van Herpen excels the beauty and complexity of nature with pieces of couture tour de force during its latest show themed Hypnosis

In collaboration with sculptor Anthony Howe, the Dutch designer presents 19 pieces of otherworldly dresses, each of them symmetrically flows in radiate with the 'Omniverse' – a kinetic spherical sculpture that serves as an emblem of a portal that transcends the rhythms of life.



John Galliano's exploration on decadence comes to a crescendo at Maison Margiela's AW19 Artisanal Show as he sends his muses down the runway with textiles that shrug gender and fetishism (for fur and skin) off – leaving only cuts and prints left for his works.

And Galliano's idea of 'compulsive and anarchic' is accentuated by the works of filmmaker Katerina Jebb, of which the montage of body parts are projected at the show in a rather raw, intimate tone.



Galliano is not the only one that lifts anarchism, at Givenchy, artistic director Clare Waight Keller presents Noblesse Radical, a collection inspired by "anarchic woman who comes through the château and all of the elements of what you’d find there".

The whim turns into a parade of unreserved couture where grace is found within the edgy cuttings and voluminous, powerful silhouettes; and not to mention how Guido Palau gives a brilliant finish to the looks with the reimagined mohawk hair.




The ode to beauty and diversity continues at Valentino Fall 2019 couture show. With a spectrum of rich hues, even bolder and more extravagant take on the silhouettes, creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli showcases a collection that gives a glimpse on the individualism of different culture.

The show ends with an emotional finale, where Piccioli leads the walk with the Maison's ateliers, who brought the collection to life, kissing thank you to Valentino Garavani.
