By lighting up the internet, Viktor & Rolf’s multi-tiered princess gowns at the Spring/Summer 2023 show. Known for putting on playful shows, this year was no different for the brand. With exaggerated silhouettes and gravity-defying garments taking centre stage, the audience was definitely in for a surprise when the show began.

With animals being the focal point of Chanel’s show too, Virginie Viard took inspiration from Coco Chanel’s apartment to present standout motifs with larger-than-life animals. The bride with a white silk camisole dress edged with ruffles and embroidered with tone-on-tone sequin entered from an elephant designed of wood, cardboard and paper.

As Schiaparelli kicked off fashion week with its Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2023 show, Kylie Jenner undoubtedly became the highlight of the show in the audience. This faux art creation was constructed by hand using manmade materials and matched Irina Shayk at this animal-packet couture show.

A pop of colour

Alexandre Vaulthier’s show saw chic pops of colour, especially when Iris Law closed the show in her pink trompe l’oein sequin dress with supersized puff sleep and pinned-back blonde hair. By giving the LBD an edge and seeing black in different forms, shapes and materials, the collection was nothing less than edgy.

If there’s one thing that stood out at Schiaparelli’s Fall/Winter 2023 couture show in Paris, it was undoubtedly Doja Cat’s Inferno-inspired look. Created by the talented makeup artist, Pat McGrath, the singer’s over-the-top look was completed with a faille bustier and a hand-knit skirt of lacquered wooden beads, and lastly trompe l’oeil toe boots for the final touch. Encrusted in 30,000 Swarovski crystals, the process reportedly took four hours and 58 minutes to hand-apply. The singer’s hair was covered in a skin-hued cap before the crystals and gold dust were precisely applied to her body.
