It may be an insecure moment for the metier itself, but, nevertheless, the fall couture shows were full of intriguing life. Christian Lacroix, for instance, chose this season to blend wonder and restraint in a beautiful collection, while Jean Paul Gaultier used the superlative workmanship of his house to create stylish musketeers.
Christian Lacroix: Christian Lacroix’s models wore their hair in huge silvery fluffs that, according to hairdresser Odile Gilbert, were supposed to look as if they had their heads in the clouds. Perhaps so, but the girls, and the designer who dressed them, experienced their fall couture reverie with feet firmly, if delicately, on their ground. That deft weaving of wonder and restraint made for an exquisite collection.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
