The fashion calendar is incomplete without the much-awaited haute couture week, where the most talented and imaginative designers gather in Paris to unveil their stunning collections. This year, Chanel’s Haute Couture show dazzled on the cobblestones along the Seine, while Dior chose the picturesque Musée Rodin Garden as its presentation venue. Making a bold statement with the location choice, newcomer Thom Browne showcased his inaugural collection of iconic grey suiting pieces at the magnificent Palais Garnier, an opera house. At Alaïa, Pieter Mulier proved his exceptional flair for elegant design, and Demna experimented with unconventional silhouettes at Balenciaga.

Undoubtedly, the dramatic settings chosen for the couture show heightened the anticipation surrounding the garments. After all, these couture collections are the culmination of meticulous craftsmanship carried out by luxury ateliers. The majority of the clientele consists of VIP individuals seeking tailor-made pieces or unique designs to adorn their expansive wardrobes, awaiting the perfect occasion such as a red-carpet event or charity gala. However, even for those unable to afford or incorporate these clothes into their everyday lives, Haute Couture offers a remarkable insight into the creative motivations of designers. These collections, crafted with generous budgets and access to the world’s finest artisans, are intended to captivate and inspire.

While the concept of understated luxury has largely dominated high-end fashion discourse in recent seasons, you will find an array of striking creations in this realm. From exquisite rosettes to XXL bows, these are the six boldest fashion upcoming trends straight from the runways.


The bows showcased in this season’s Haute Couture collections were truly extraordinary in their size. Designers such as ArdAzAei, Viktor & Rolf, and Rahul Mishra skillfully incorporated meticulously tied XXL bows into their ensembles. We enthusiastically suggest embracing the voluminous trend observed on the runway by incorporating a top with an oversized bow tie or by adding a detachable bow or luxurious ribbon belt to your accessories collection.

While floral motifs have long been a staple in fashion, this fall/winter season sees the eternal presence of garden blooms. Embroidered and printed roses take centre stage, adorning exquisite gowns showcased by renowned brands like Armani Privé, Chanel, and Giambattista Valli. Exquisite 3-D rosettes become a key element to add an extra dimension to the trend, with textured designs blossoming on the looks, particularly notable at Armani Privé.

Haute Couture garments are known for taking a team of highly skilled seamstresses hundreds of hours to create. This fact becomes readily apparent when examining pieces from the Tony Ward, Fendi, and Elie Saab runways, which featured not only jewel-encrusted designs but also, in many cases, sheer fabrics. To channel this glamorous and indulgent trend, consider scaling it down to a single element like a crop top or accessory.

Corset-style tops have remained a prominent trend. However, the Schiaparelli, Zuhair Murad, and Ashi Studio collections took this trend to new heights during couture week. While there are plenty of ready-to-wear brands offering corsets for purchase, we suggest opting for sheer fabrics or tops with visible boning details to fully embrace this trend and bring it into your own wardrobe.

From beachy destination weddings to quiet courthouse ceremonies, contemporary brides seek dresses that break away from the traditional princess silhouette. This season, designers, including Chanel, Rahul Mishra, and Thom Browne, cater to this group by thinking beyond conventions and presenting their clients with something unique, hyper-specific to their chosen wedding type, and entirely unexpected.

Haute Couture Fashion week showcased the emergence of golden goddesses. These ensembles veered towards a more fluid gold tone rather than an armour-like finish, making it an ideal trend to recreate at home with a refined gold dress.
