It was a representation of flowers, exquisitely interpreted through the finest tulle, embroidery and crystals. Giambattista Valli's spring 2016 haute couture collection delivered a fresh bouquet of youth in beautiful dresses, short and long. I do question Valli's casting, however. These models look sixteen and while they are absolutely amazing in these dresses, the couture client is sixteen about three times over. Of course, one can argue that Valli is setting up to pass the couture torch to the daughters of their clients. After all, haute couture is a lifestyle meant to transcend generations. Back to the dresses... the gowns at the end of the show were breathtaking. I predict some will work their way onto the red carpet this award season.
