Christophe Decarnin of Balmain showed a stunning disco show for Fall 2009. As a part of this collection, Decarnin sent models down the runway with ruffled trains attached to the back of their dresses. The collection was similar to his Spring 2009 line, complete with the “club in the front, red carpet in the back” look we mentioned last season.

Balmain is so hot right now, so this show will probably have knock-off dressmakers raking in the dough.

Implications - The styles brought on by Balmain designer Christophe Decarnin are making a name for the designer as the savior of traditional, yet seductive womenswear. The Fall 2009 styles embody a good time.
