From Chanel to Atelier Versace

 - Feb 5, 2013
Nothing embodies the richness of fashion quite like the 2013 couture collections. This year designers outdid themselves and resurrected the drama and romance of couture.

The haute couture collections amped up the opulence and the ambiances created were lavish and outstanding. Luxury labels such as Chanel and Dior opted for whimsical themes and highlighted their runways with greenery. Whereas, brands such as Atelier Versace and Giambattista Valli went for darker and militant tones. Whether you gravitate towards delicate and light or dark and ominous couture there was something for everyone this season. Major highlights included Elie Saab's bedazzled translucent gowns and Roberto Cavalli's decadent reinterpretations of his signature animal prints.

The 2013 couture collections for women were remarkable and mark a new chapter in the history of fashion.
