The new Chanel Spring 2009 Haute Couture collection by Karl Lagerfeld embodies what Haute Couture is all about, a dream.
Lagerfeld took us away from the stark reality of war and bad economy into a bright tomorrow with a predominantly white collection that is inspired by paper and accentuated with floral designs. The white paper is a reference to starting with a clean slate.
However, the white dream was interrupted for a bit with 23-year-old model Alexandra Tomlinson stumbling and almost falling if not for the helping hand of one of the attendees.
Ah, reality sets back in.
