Sleeping Beauty Viktor and Rolf style......

Obviously these are very modern, independent, politcally correct sleeping beauties because they didn't wait around for a man to wake them up.

Some darker looks from Givenchy HC f/w 03 (perfect for your evil queen/stepmother/which etc...)







And if this dress isn't perfect for the Queen of Hearts I don't know what is...

This thread is amazing! I love all the pictures. Here are a few photos from an ed that I don't think has been posted from what I have seen; it immediately made me think "fairy-tale."

I know I've posted these elsewhere already but I thought they were a perfect addition to the thread:

Bernhard Willhelm A/W 99- Inspired by the Black Forest(Softie )

Quote:
The concept of the collection:

Bernhard Willhelm’s inspirations are his childhood in Bavaria/Germany, the Black Forest and pure young girls.
The collection for winter '99/'00 offers a surprising new mix of on the one hand traditional German costumes, needlework, patchwork and knitted pieces, while on the other hand the experimental cut and organic structures are as far away from 'folklore' as you could imagine. It's the contrast between these two givens that it special -and work.
The cut is architectural and structured, away from the body, which gives it a totally new form. According to Mr.Willhelm this works best with dresses, so there are many of them in this particular collection, as well as circle skirts that end just below the knee. He created blouses that look like flowers and jackets with unusual proportions, with the emphasis on the shoulder. Trousers are men's pants cut for women.
The final touch, the beautiful finishing is of great importance, with details like rough embroidery with symbolic and naive symbols.
Eye catching in his collection is the knitwear, with hand knitted circle skirts made out of thick wool and-by way of contrast-extremely refined and elegant pullovers knitted out of iridescent metal yarns.
The accessories are also knitted and consist of extra long wool mittens and stockings, sometimes with a naive motif.
There are four themes in the collection: black, black & white, Sissi (Sunday's Best) and prints on silk.
Materials: shiny loden (felted wool) and wool (men's tailoring), plus silk satin and organza. All materials are quite stiff to the touch.
Colours: black and white, clear colours like primary red and different shades of green.
Altogether there are 48 different styles made out of cut patterns, 10 knitwear pieces plus shoes and various accessories.

If anybody can find some good pictures from those,I would be greatly appreciative. Otherwise,I found nothing significant through Google or anything.
