After years of researching luxury fashion houses, their head designers, and the inspiration of their collections, I began to realize there are certain fashion houses I like the most. My favorite fashion luxury houses had a style that is repeated over and over again that I love to see.
Chanel is a fashion house I enjoy watching the runway shows of, but don’t always love everything in their collections. Despite this, the brand continues to bring back older styles that make Chanel’s fashion, handbags, shoes, and accessories always recognizable. Because of this, I love Chanel and the fashion the house’s style.
Christian Dior is one of the first fashion houses I loved the style of. Although my favorite designer for the House of Dior is Christian Dior himself, I really love John Galliano’s designs for Dior as well. I didn’t like Dior’s fashion collections in the past five years, but I still love Christian Dior’s original designs and other head designers interpretation of his designs.
I’m not going to lie, when I saw Alexander McQueen’s fashions for the first time I didn’t like them. They weren’t something I liked and the outfits frightened me. It didn’t help that I was about six years old when I saw photographs of McQueen’s fashions for the first time. But as I grew older and saw other collections by McQueen, I started to not only appreciate but love his fashion style. When he passed away in 2010, I knew the fashion style would change and I may not like what they would look like. After seeing the Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen designed wedding dress Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wore to her 2011 wedding to Prince William, I loved her interpretation of McQueen’s style and how it can be toned down to be classy and sophisticated. I’ve been a fan of the House of Alexander McQueen’s fashions ever since.
