Alexis Mabille‘s gorgeous designs at the 2013 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week instantly capture the spotlight. This edition was different compared to the fall 2012 couture collection not only through the concepts endorsed but also because this edition was the one that consolidated the couturier status of the label once and for all. With this in mind, the label has focused on craftsmanship rather than on structure and brought some spectacular feminine options down the catwalks with a few edgy touches thrown in.
Attention was focused on high impact gowns that have the ability to make any woman feel like a princess together with a few interesting options that strayed from the norm and completed the vision of the label with spectacular options for those who like feminine touches but don’t necessarily adhere to the conventional recipe for elegance. With organza, chiffon as lace as the fabrics of choice, however, the intent of the new designs was more than clear. If short cocktail dresses were fairly straightforward in terms of proportions, the evening gowns were a different story altogether.
