Runway Look: Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018

Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018 - Sublime Cravings Illustration

I’m enamored with the direction that Maria Grazia Chiuri has taken Dior since she took the helm at the fashion house. This latest collection featured an array of ethereal chiffon and Chantilly lace dresses in nude and blush tones. Soft, beautiful and refined, the Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018 dress in this illustration features sunray pleated chiffon in the palest shade of pink. Dainty drop earrings embellished with colorful but delicate animal figurines lend a whimsical touch to the whole look.

Runway Look: Christian Dior Couture Fall 2016

Current Cravings


I loved the silhouettes used in the Christian Dior Couture Fall 2016 collection. And the black and white palette, with touches of gold and silver, allowed the silhouettes to take center stage. This show was billed as a modern take on the New Look (full skirts, tiny waists, and billowing fabric) that Christian Dior introduced in his debut collection.

This off-the-shoulder halter dress with gold embroidery was one of my favorite looks from the collection. The overall vibe of the collection was modern, chic, and feminine, yet effortless.

Craving Spring Trends: Chokers and Ruffles 

Current Cravings


My series on standout Spring 2016 clothing and accessory pairings continues with a second combination: ruffles and chokers.

A ruffled dress paired with a choker is a classic pairing that can come off as little “costumey” if you’re not careful. But done right, the look can be romantic with a slight edge. The jewel tones of this Alice + Olivia dress and this Christian Dior choker keeps this look fresh, not “costumey.”

Chokers also pair well with slip dresses (for a very ’90s look). Which combination do you prefer, chokers and ruffles or chokers and slip dresses?
