Atelier Versace Fall 2008

Versace do not normally have a runway show for their Couture (Atelier) collection, but on this occasion they included Donatella’s illustrations with the Couture photographs on the Versace website.

For me this Fall 2008 collection is not as spectacular as the Spring 2008 collection, which saw 6 of the 15 gowns appear on the red carpet.

Of course all of these 17 gowns have red carpet potential, especially the gold lame striped gown, the black strapless gown with a star detail on the hip, and the one-shouldered see-through gown that looks like a spiders web above.

But I am slightly disappointed as some of the gowns look better as illustrations – this applies mostly to the green dress. I am also disappointed that I could not see the front of all of the dress. Back and side views just frustrate me.

    wowwwwwwww i am so in love with versace right now! and ohmygosh those sketches are amazing! hours of meticulous work must have went into those. beautiful blending and color choices. i hope to God that one day i will be able to raw like that. that would bring me immense joy.
    i am in love with so many of these dresses. i think are only two dresses that i looked at and went wth? i love the first leopard print dress. amazing concept for the leopard print (which is kind of being used to death).

    I agree Cate is perfect for a few of these dress, but she is wears a lot of Armani, so not sure if we will ever get to see her in these dresses.
