Saskia de Brauw stars in a Vogue UK November 2011 editorial titled The Illusionist. Shot by Mario Testino, Saskia de Brauw dons couture pieces that exude old Hollywood 1940’s vibes in this stunning Vogue UK November 2011 editorial that features couture creations from the likes of Giambattista Valli, Valentino, Chanel, Dior, Azzedine Alaîa, Givenchy, Armani Privé, Jean Paul Gaultier and Atelier Versace. Love the creative concept of this shoot; a simple backdrop, spotlights and beautiful Haute Couture garments is all it takes.
Speaking of couture, the inaugural Women’s Fashion Week 2011 Singapore will kick off tomorrow right here in Singapore starting with the fringe Prét-à-Porter event which will feature collections from selected brands that are located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. All of these shows will be held from the 21st to 23rd October, at TWG Tea on the Bridge, Basement 2 at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and are free and open to the public.
However, the main event, Best of Haute Couture Week, which will be held from 26th to 30th October will be invite only. Held at the Expo and Exhibition Centre, Marina Bay Sands, 8 couture designers from the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture will feature their latest collections. These include Alexis Mabille, Anne Valerie Hash and Stephane Rolland, who will close the event, among others.
It was great then that the organisers decided to come up with the Haute Couture Exhibition which will be held from 6th to 31st October located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands’ Jewellery Lane. This exhibition is open to the public and aims to impress upon them the exquisite world of Haute Couture. Last but not least, WFW 2011 Singapore will also present an Asian Couture Showcase that will feature collections from Asian and Singaporean designers including Ashley Isham, Thomas Wee and Federick Lee.

I swear I could cry if I ever held a Haute Couture garment; to feel the luxe fabrics, the man-hours put into it, the exquisite workmanship; the highest level of fashion in short. For now, check out the Saskia de Brauw by Mario Testino for Vogue UK November 2011 couture editorial below.
