For Those Who Like It Haute. Very Haute.

Outfits from the Stephane Rolland Haute Couture Winter 2009/2010 show that took place in Paris. My heart melted. So light and elegant. These are the dresses I liked best, paired two by two as I saw fit. Also, I'm very happy I could find on the official site some material description as this is something that rarely can be found. Alos, found it useful to include links to some explanation pages for the trickier terms. It's always useful to refresh your memory, no?

Let's see, where does it all come from? Well, Rolland is member of the very small circle of Parisian Haute Couture. Previously, he studied fashion at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. He started working at Balenciaga when he was just 20 and got promoted Creative Director within a year... At the age of 24, Stephane Rolland left Balenciaga to put up his own prêt-à-porter collection. Six years later, he becomes the youngest French Couturier on avenue Montaigne, working for the house of Jean-Louis Scherrer...
