  Haute Couture week just finished and we were able to admire some really gorgeous creations by the names of Christian Dior, Chanel, Maison Margiela, Elie Saab, Jean Paul Gaultier, Giambattista Valli, Giorgio Armani, Valentino and Schiaparelli. Their designs are all over the internet, but did you know that there are other fashion designers who also show their creations during Haute Couture week?.

HYUN MI NIELSEN:

A guest on the couture calendar, this former Givenchy, Alexander Mcqueen and most recently Balenciaga alumna presented this year her first solo collection during the Haute Couture week.  What you can see on her designs is a dark, almost gothic poetry,going from ethereal to verging on bondage in an unusual yet appealing play on contrasts.

GALIA LAHAV:

This year was the first time that an Israeli fashion house has been invited to show on the official haute couture calendar and Galia Lahav was the house that did it. Galia Lahav is eponymously named after its founder, and who designs with her assistant, Sharon Sever. The house began more than 30 years ago when Mrs. Lahav discovered her talent for designing laces. That sensitivity would eventually lead her to creating wedding gowns and finally couture for women around the world.
