I love this editorial because it features some of my favorite fashion houses. The first up top is the French label, Balenciaga. Lead by Nicolas Ghesquière for the past 10 years, the line was originally started by Cristóbal Balenciaga in 1937. Balenciaga is known to be unfussy, with minimal seams & cutouts.
The third photo features shoes from Alexander "The Great" McQueen. If you aren't a McQueen fan, I really have nothing to say to you. McQueen was constantly pushing boundaries with his clothing. Everytime I see one of his pieces I'm in awe. Although he has passed his clothing and shoes can still be found in music videos, red carpets, and on the covers of magazines. He was taken from this world far too early.
 Last but not least is Balmain! The best way to describe Balmain is grungy chic, and elegant all at once. Christophe Decarnin, is behind the line. Cut outs, rips and layering fabrics are trademarks of Balmain, along with leather pants, and amazingly skinny jeans. So as not to take away from a woman's femininity,  Balmain also pays close attention to draping especially in their goddess-like dresses, and features tight mini dresses. Balmain was the  inspiration behind my dress hem seen here.
