The disappearing industry made its turnaround this season, with Donatella Versace back on the couture schedule after eight years of absence. From Chanel’s sky-high collection to Jean Paul Gaultier’s Amy Winehouse tribute, we give you the top trends from the haute couture extravaganza.

Floral Texture
Whether is it a futuristic number from Versace, voluminous detail at Chanel or romanticised by Elie Saab, the beautiful floral textures are in full bloom.
