As Haute Couture Week is one of the main places to search for trends are born, let’s check what kind of flounces will be in for the next seasons through the Spring Summer Haute Couture 2018 Paris shows.
Basically we’re now into many different sizes of flounces, big, small, short, long, asymmetrical flounces and ruffles. Sometimes they can be from lace or pleated fabric.
Here is the perfect example of the asymmetrical flounce on the circle skirt in godets from Givenchy Haute Couture, cut from wonderful heavy pale pink satin. Definitely this kind of aristocratic pink is always a good idea…
Another way of using the flounces is to add a flounce at the bottom of the fitted dress to create a sophisticated and elegant look like here at Alexis Mabille. It’s also a perfect way to make the body look more slender and to accentuate a beautiful waist.

Giambattista Valli dress lilac one? What material is that dress made of?
It’s a very good question. Giambattista Valli is a great fan of silk and fine expensive fabrics in general! I would say it’s a silk organza because organza can keep form like that. Organza fabric can be found not only in silk, but also in polyester and nylon.
Hope that this responds to your question.
Have a nice day,
