With skirt hemlines tumbling for Fall 2009, Carolina Herrera increased the drama factor by adding sexy fishtail skirts to her collection.

For non-fashion folk, these skirts taper in toward the knee and then come out in an A-line at the ankle, creating a fabulous silhouette. This Carolina Herrera Fall 2009 collection was poised, pretty and a pleasure to look at.

Implications - Caroline Herrera's mermaid-inspired skirts play into the fantastical side of fashion that is too often lost amongst the busy, chaotic daily lives of fashionistas. This decadent, whimsical side of fashion is the basis of haute couture, and is slowly but surely being incorporated into collections as the antidote to the tedious lives of some consumers.
