Haute Couture Trends: Branching Out

The age old cliche tells us that great minds think alike. And this phrase could not have been more true in the fashion houses of Valentino and Zuhair Murad as they prepared for their Haute Couture Fall 2013 runway shows.

There was definitely some similar thinking going on as both Valentino and Zuhair Murad sent gowns down their runways with almost identical branch motifs on them. The thin, elongated appliqués sprouted from the dresses as if they were planted in some decadent haunted forest.

The branch trend seems to be haute coutures answer to florals, and is definitely more winter appropriate! We can’t wait to see this fresh unusual trend translate to casual wear!

Don’t worry Valentino, we were over flowers anyway …

What do you think of this new trend?
