Watching couture shows online or via social media we all agree the collections are stunning and we daydream of the life which involves wearing such spectacular pieces. Quickly the next show runs and our media is updated and sometimes we fail to really understand the talent and time that goes in to creating these seasonal masterpieces. When I first saw these striped pleat skirts by Raf Simons for Dior, (in particular the green outfit) I fell in to a lust pit over this contemporary approach to couture. After viewing the above video showing the creation process I am glad to be able to dwell on this beauty further, what inspiring dedication to craft. If wearing one of these skirts on a date you better hope your date doesn't get handsy, these pleats are too precious to paw!
