Fall 2009 Paris Fashion Week Trends: Excited For… New Look

new-lookJohn Galliano revisited Dior’s 1947 New Look for Christian Dior’s spring couture show. For fall ready-to-wear, many other designers joined him in creating a new New Look. Alexander McQueen’s theatrical creations stood out the most. But my favorite was Louis Vuitton’s more wearable suit. Instead of the post-War sloping shoulders, designer Marc Jacobs kept to the 80s trend with shoulder pads. And the hot pink lined peplum added a playful touch.
