I've gone. It's not a gigantic expo, but interesting. They have about a half dozen outfits for each collection. A number of collections from aw06 - Yojhi, Victor & Rolf, Hussein Chalayan, the "edgier" collections. Also, the couture collections from ss06 - Chanel, Valentino, Dior, etc...
It's nothing you've never seen if you've been following collections online, in magazines, publications. But it is fun to see them in real life.

I really liked the Dior collection as well!

But most people there were criticizing it

It was a related special exhibit on fashion photography. The fashion show exhibit is on the second floor, while the fashion photography exhibit is on the first floor

Im so excited about this. Having lived in Boston for my whole life (up until last year), this is a great development. They dont even SELL half of these designers' clothing in the greater Boston area! Im going to hit it up while visiting the family next week =)

Here are some from the Dior Haute Couture [Paris Fashion Week] SS 2006



There are a lot of clothes I see on runways I like, but very rarely would I actually want to purchase a piece (that is, if I had the money). Well, this is a dress I would actually buy!!!
