Haute Couture is exclusive, high-end fashion that is featured in the pages of VOGUE, and worn on runways and red carpets all over the world. Haute Couture is absolutely fascinating to me. I have always loved watching runway shows, and looking at photos from red carpet events and seeing the latest designs. If only we could all afford the luxurious garments that are produced by Haute Couture designers! Here is a list of my favourite designer fashion houses.

Dolce & Gabanna

Dolce & Gabanna is a luxury Italian fashion house which was founded in 1985. I adore their designs, as they are so unique and absolutely captivating. They transport me to another world! I love their floral collections with such bright and vibrant colours. They also have incredible designs which feature gold embellishments and incredible details. I don't think that D&G has ever had a simple, or boring collection as you can never predict what they are going to do next. I love the extravagance of their designs, and am constantly amazed by the collections they continue to produce!

Balmain is a French luxury fashion house that was founded by Pierre Balmain in 1945. You have most likely seen Balmain designs on the Kardashians, and other celebrities at red carpet events. I absolutely love their designs! I love the sparkle, and the bold fabrics, and the firm 'architectural structures' that commonly feature in their collections. Balmain is similar to Dolce & Gabanna as they are both known for their wild, and unique designs which truly bring the wow factor!

Elie Saab

Elie Saab is a Lebanese fashion house renowned for its elegant and romantic crystal-encrusted gowns. Everyone from princesses and celebrities have been seen in Elie Saab designs. The fashion house also has a stunning bridal collection. I adore the feminine, princess-like dresses, which I would absolutely love to wear one day! I love the soft dream like quality of the designs, and the gorgeous pastel fabrics Elie Saab uses. It would be a dream to wear one of their dresses one day!

Zuhair Murad

Zuhair Murad is a Lebanese fashion designer who designs absolutely breathtaking gowns as you can see from the photos above! His designs are regularly worn at red carpet events and high profile weddings. I love the beautiful fabrics he uses, and the feminine colours, and embellishments. The intricate details on his dresses are incredible. I would love to wear one of his dresses one day! I'm sure the lucky ladies who get to wear them must feel like princesses.

Teuta Matoshi Duriqi

Teuta Matoshi is not a Haute Couture designer, however her dresses are probably some of the most beautiful designs I have ever seen. The dresses are so unique to the brand that I could recognise them anywhere. I adore the floral appliqué that is featured on many of her designs and the combinations of colour she uses. The dresses are so elegant, and feminine with stunning sleeves, and incredible detailing. Her dresses look like fairytales and it would be an absolute dream to wear one.
