Couture Fashion Week: Paris

Its january, and its cold, wet, damp and misrable but at least there's couture fashion week to bright it up.
 I've been looking forward to this one for weeks. I love how intricutly designed the clothes are almost like works of art. I really do swoon over it and so far this one hasn't disapointed.

By far my favorite has to be Dior, you can always cont on John Galliano to produce a good show and this is no exception with influences from the 50's its a nod to the time when Christian Dior himself was still at the helm.
See for your self and be prepared to be dulverged into sheer luxury and sumptiousness.


Staying true to its self Karl Lagerfied put on another dasling show, minimalistic but feminine nonetheless.showing that those little details do really count.

Armani Prive

I wasn't as impressed with armani as I thought I would be, I was taken by the jewelled jacket which I thought looked elegant, and the shine on that fabric was very umm lets say different although I did like the little hats which were used through out.

I'm looking forward to the John Paul Gaultier and Givency shows next so hope fully they'll be good!!

what do you think of the designs and is anyone else fans of couture fashion, if so which  designers do you favour?

 thanks for looking x

How To: Inserting a side seam zip with pocket

This skirt was meant to have a center back zip along with side seam pockets. Instead I put the two together and combined the zip into the side seam pocket and thought I would share with you how I did it or basically winged it ;)

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
