In the early 80's Christian Lacroix was hailed as the new emerging designer of contemporary Haute Couture. And when he opened his own House in 1987 there was no doubt that his extravagant lavish and exotic 'larger than life' creations made the House of Lacroix the mecca for the new high society of the 1980's. Lacroix has no boundaries in his artistic interpretation to create fashion; fashions that have no limits in terms of expense and larger-than-life volumes and volumes of exquisite brocades and patchwork silks.
Lacroix designs the most impressive, unique and astounding ball gowns that one can only describe as 'masterpieces'. Reminiscent of royalty at the French Court at Versailles it's easy to see where Lacroix begets his inspiration. This authentic haute couture runway ensemble is no exception..
