Fall 2016-2017 Haute Couture Trends

A wave of change swept through Paris for the fall Haute Couture collections starting with the departure of Maria Chiurri from Valentino to Dior to become the fashion house's creative director after the departure of Raf Simons during the Spring/Summer season. New York based designer J. Mendel and London fashion house Giles Deacon made their debut on the Parisian couture catwalk for the fall 2016-2017 collections as did Milanese designer Alberta Ferretti.
Amidst all the changes; these are the trends for Fall 2016-17 from the couture runways.

Tiers - The frilly and ruffly touches of tiers reigned down arms and skirts of frocks in the couture collections of Giambattista Valli, Alberta Ferretti Limited and Armani Prive.

Off-The-Shoulder - The shoulder was the erogenous zone for spring/summer 2016 collections and it remains so for Paris as majority churned out frocks to keep shoulders on display.

Dazzle - Couture collections are incomplete without the dazzle element for added glamour in the form of expensive stones for detailing and sequins for a standout effect.
