Well well well...
The ultra exclusive haute couture family added THREE new guest members on its calendar for spring/summer 2014 season showed in January!

Former Rochas creative director Marco Zanini signed on to become creative director of Schiaparelli in September. After a one-time couture come-back collection by Christian Lacroix (it was maaaaaggnifique!), Marco Zanini will be showing the spirit of Schiaparelli house under HIGH expectation. Will we see lots of pink, and perhaps, a rendition of lobster dress somewhere?
2. Ralph & Russo
Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo. This couture duo will enliven the couture week (five days only) with their beautiful sense of bespoke clothing and evening dresses. A plus, they're English, which kind of fulfilling my long to the father of couture, Mr. Worth. Seeing this following dress, saying that they don't understand couture would be a nonsense. Simplicity can be flattering too.
3. Serkan Cura
Need to say something about this designer?
It's just a matter of time for this Turkish-born, Belgian-trained designer to fill a slot in the calendar. Fashion is either wearable (I hate this terminology), or to inspire, to brighten imagination, and to broaden fantasy. Serkan Cura has showed me for both.
