Haute Couture Spring 2011 Shows in Paris Get Wild

Designers such as Valentino, Dior, Givenchy and others took inspiration from the animal kingdom during last week's Haute Couture Spring 2011 shows. From Givenchy's bison-inspired headdresses to Christian Dior's corvid-mimicking gowns and masks, there was no shortage of wild designs on the catwalk.

Avian, aquatic, reptilian and wild animal fashions gave a glimpse of "spring fever," with some of the most stunning of these animal-inspired fashions including Valentino's interpretation of the jellyfish and Dior's elegant ostrich dress.

Implications - The best part about haute couture week in Paris is that it serves as a celebration of art at its most bare, minimalist form: handcrafting products, high quality fabrics, and top notch materials. With the Spring 2011 couture season just coming to a close, the animal kingdom reigns supreme in the fashion world yet again.
