To herald in the new autumn/winter fashion season, we decided to begin at its pinnacle, haute couture, and its Italian counterpart, alta moda. Literally the finest clothes that money can buy, haute couture is created by hand, by a very select group of designers. Model Ludyvinka stepped out in priceless creations by the likes of Chanel, Valentino, Ralph & Russo and Viktor & Rolf, as well as regional names Azzi & Osta and Rami Al Ali.
Ranging from the thought-provoking (Christian Dior), to the romantic (Rami Al Ali), via the fantastical (August Getty) and the unfathomably intricate (Dolce & Gabbana), high fashion comes in many guises. The shoot was lensed by Paris-based photographer Chantelle Dosser, who captured the story.
