Paper Couture Fall '07 Collection

The moment is finally here, the arrival of the Paper Couture Fall '07 collection. Following the show tonight I popped in and out of Tableau, waiting for the Lu Sisters to pop up on my radar, and sure enough it wasn't too long before they filled the store with their new collection, and Paper Couture was soon overflowing with fashionistas eager to get their hands on the clothes. Not wanting to be fussed with making decisions (much too hard with the quality of the collection this season), I bought it all. There is a definite retro edge to many of the pieces in this collection - 1960s and 80s vintage meets high fashion. In the hands of the very talented Lu Sisters, the result is simply stunning. At the time of writing, there is still no sign of the new season shoes and glasses, but there are gorgeous new handbags available. Now if the Lu Sisters would just release the amazing hair their models teased us with during the show, I would be in heaven!

It was extremely difficult to narrow it down to a few favourite pieces to post here; it will be even harder to explain to Swirly why I usurped her on blogging one of her favourite designers, but hey, that bitch got to model in their SHOW!

Hands down my favourite from the collection, Red Baby could well be the cutest dress in SL. Yes, I know it looked better on Swirly......

Sleek and glamorous with a definite 80s edge, Black Orchid

Head coverings are a feature of many of the outfits, including the earthy but very urban Cold Street

I am getting a real "Dynasty" vibe from Stray Horse. Absolutely superb texturing and prim work.

LBD with a couture edge - Rode Island

Another hands down favourite, the very retro Pool. Yes, that's a system skirt.

An absolute show stopper - the Falsetta Layered Gown

Not much else to be said except......... get your ass down to Tableau right now!
