Back in March during fashion week my mom and I had the pleasure of visiting Christian Dior’s Haute Couture house to see the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Not only were the the pieces extraordinary in person –as well as incredibly heavy– but while we were there, I got to slip into my first couture gown! I suppose I didn’t ‘slip into’ it, as much as I worked incredibly hard to hoist myself into the bodice. There were layer upon layer of zippers and such, but after ten grueling minutes, I was in… And what a relief it was. Although the gown weighed 30+ pounds, it was hard to part with it and return back into the little vintage jean number I was wearing that day. Below is a short video of the collection and some pics… Enjoy!
