Top Crowning Moments Of London, Milan And Paris Fashion Weeks. Fall-Winter 2013

Well, it is a wrap for another round of global Fashion Weeks for the season of Fall-Winter 2013. From this point on the entire Fashion Universe will retrieve into ateliers, design studious, swatch rooms, fitting sessions in one strenuous effort to make September happen. I keep thinking about Galliano's ratio: "200% of hard work for 5 minutes of spectacular glamour on the runway." Well, sounds good enough to me. Looking back at the London, Milan and Paris shows I caught myself thinking how different they were from what we saw in New York this fashion season. There seem to be more authentic, created with so much love and attention to every detail. You could almost feel how much soul-searching has been done for some of the shows especially in Paris. It seemed as if many of the designers suddenly stopped to think about the true meaning of Fashion. The answer clearly revealed itself on the runways:  it wasn't about concentrating on marketing and sale profits.It was more about the skills, sense of  freedom, defiance, the essential connection between the art of fashion in relation to the modern day customer.
When I saw stunning Collection by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen inspired by "High Church", I could not believe it is not  Haute Couture Collection. The subject of jeweled face cages in hat design was entertained before by Martin Margiela, Chanel, Alexander McQueen(when he was designing for his own brand) just to name a few. I thought that pearl encrusted head cages were breathtaking. They were telling the story, seducing the viewer to take a journey to the very core of imagination. There were jeweled crowns by Dolce&Gabbana, very baroque and very Dolce&Gabbana.:-) I loved amazing jeweled "Zarina" crown by Lanvin. I fell in love with chic and delicate combination of liquid silks and chiffon with chunky knitted soft berets suggested by Giles and Sibling. I can go on and on about my favorite hats and head pieces, believe me I have a long list of them this season. :-) I hope you will enjoy the selection of hats and spend few minutes on the task of choosing your top favorites. I should warn you: it will not be easy with so many beautiful hats to choose from.Wishing everyone fantastic weekend ahead!
