For a die-hard fashion lover, Haute Couture Week in Paris is often the most important and exciting week of the year, and these Spring 2012 Couture collections showcase exactly why that is.
From the house of Christian Dior's triumphant return as the leader of haute couture fashion, to the end of Donatella Versace's eight year long absence from the world of couture, this season has definitely been an exciting one for fashion lovers all over the world.
The house of Chanel outdid itself with the leadership of design genius Karl Lagerfeld, with its avian-inspired collection, while Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci returned to the brand's goth-glam foundation, featuring some intense facial jewelry and black and white designs that were inexplicably set in a basketball court.
These Spring 2012 Couture collections are the ultimate in high fashion and will leave fashionistas in awe of their intricacy.
