These gowns are spring personified. For me Giambattista Valli's Spring/Summer 2009 collection harks back to the later part of the Dior era when haute couture was all about femininity. The festooned gown above is a couture tour de force. Rows and rows of tiny organza ruffles shape the entire piece--just one of many of Valli's finale pieces.
The perfect hourglass is back. I'm hoping this silhouette will stick around awhile . . .not only for bridal wear but pretty summer dresses.
