La Tete Haute

Christian Lacroix Haute Couture collection Fall 2009

Curtain down, the famous French couture house Christian Lacroix might be shut down at the end of this month because of financial difficulties however the designer certainly did not say his last words yet.

A couture show were finally put together at the last minute “we’re are set as clock, said the designer, for us July is Haute Couture and it can not be otherwise, I couldn’t let my couturiere wait at the atelier for the final decision”.
With the help of the designer’s loyal seamstresses, embroiderers, who worked courageously until the end with the constraints of delivering an haute couture show at the lowest costs possible (the models were paid only $50 each).
With a compromise future, Lacroix wanted to end with proud showing that no finance constraints can affect his art.

An emotional and poignant show that ended up in tears and standing ovation for a genius who brought a lot to fashion. With Lacroix it doesn’t matter if you like his eccentric and colorful style the only thing that matter is his unanimity recognition by the professional and public, as one of the most respected and appreciated designer.
The whole fashion community attended the show with emotion to support one of them in those difficult time.

Only 24 looks were presented due to lack of budget and time, some pieces were even brought back from the archive and harmoniously combine with the new season looks. A collection reflecting the core value of the house with sobriety and humility. The essence of a style without the extravagance of the last few years. The legacy of a man and a talent.

The epilogue of the story should be known very shortly meanwhile I feel sad that reality hits my dream world…
