“Women, with their intuitive instinct, understood that I dreamed not only of making them more beautiful, but happier too.” -Christian Dior.
Dior is known for their high-quality, intricately designed pieces. A shining example are these Cognac Calfskin Ankle Boots by Dior, a perfect boot to accompany the autumn weather. They first debuted in the Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 runway show, and are composed of calfskin and crocodile. The construction was inspired by the Opanca technique, an old-fashioned way of constructing shoes in which they are hand-sewn and use a double needle sewing technique to attach the sock lining, sole, and upper part of the shoes to each other in one process.

It’s no secret that Alexander McQueen and skulls go together like man buns & tattoos, or affliction jeans & bad taste (oops, did I go there?). These black leather boots feature the trademark Swarovski-crystals embellished skull emblem on the Perspex heel of the boot.

Recently, I came across a beautifully designed dress by Krikor Jabotian, and immediately needed to see more of his designs.
Krikor Jabotian, Spring/Summer ’14
Krikor is a Lebanese designer who attended l’Ecole Superieure des Arts et techniques de la Mode in Beirut before working in Elie Saab’s creative department. Shortly after, he began his own atelier at the young age of 23, creating beautiful wedding and couture gowns at his family-owned business.
His work truly speaks for itself, and the designs are indescribable.
If you are interested in ordering his couture gowns, you can send him your measurements after being properly fitted, and order one of his gowns featured in his collection. There is also the option to work with Krikor to create your own gown inspired from one of his collections, but you will need to travel to his atelier in Beirut to discuss and be properly fitted by the designer. Prices range from around $12,000 to $13,500.
This designer is one to keep in your radar. What do you think of his gowns?
