Runway Report: Alexis Mabille Spring 2015 Couture

Alexis Mabille really showcased an amazing collection last night in Paris for Spring 2015 Haute Couture. The designer, known for his intimate couture presentations, showcased just 22 looks (each just more breathtaking than the last) to a small audience, which included Dita von Teese. Asian inspiration, I am sure thanks to the 2015 Costume Institute Gala theme "Chinese Whispers," was heavily prevalent with classic couture styling. This is a very sellable collection and I am praying that we see a lot of this under-appreciated designer on the red carpet. The finale dress, an antique white gown with a GIANT midnight blue satin bow, needs a moment on the cover of a magazine.
Celebrity fans of the house include Lea Seydoux, Berenice Bejo, Zoe Saldana, Dita von Teese and Keira Knightley and I would love to see the likes of Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone and Jessica Chastain also learn to love this brand. Having mostly been showcased on foreign red carpets I can see a lot of these looks during Cannes and maybe one of the Asian inspired looks at the Met Ball. I also have to say that the beauty look was one that I loved. Strands of ostrich feathers and fresh elegant faces just enhanced and added to the whimsey of each look as it walked down the runway
