In celebration of high dressmaking this season, the beautiful and the bizarre ruled. As with fashion, scandal and drama followed—anti-animal cruelty activists accused Schiaparelli creative director Daniel Roseberry of “glamourising” the use of fur in fashion; accusations that even the charity PETA has since come forward to call baseless.
Elsewhere, model Kristen McMenamy threw away her Valentino heels. Shalom Harlow, Mariacarla Boscono, Irina Shayk, and more took over the Mugler runway, Robert Wun debut his first-ever couture collection, Chanel’s bride walked the runway in a mini dress, Haider Ackermann showcased Jean Paul Gaultier‘s prickly pin-embellished couture, and Viktor&Rolf presented an innovative proposition to wearing ethereal ballgowns.
Ahead, a selection of Haute Couture moments that made headlines this season.
