Hello again, loves! Couture Week is in full swing once again in Paris and this season I simply HAD to take you with me backstage at Yanina Couture. I mean, granted, I wasn’t actually backstage. No, no. I was sat perched here in the United States drooling over my keyboard. But the wonderful PR team opened their doors to let us all go behind the curtain at one of my most anticipated shows of couture week.

If you’re not yet familiar with Yanina Couture, I’m happy to introduce you. Against powerhouses like Dior and Valentino, they may not receive as much fanfare during Couture Week. But, make no mistake, designer Yulia Yanina is honing her vision, sharpening her craftsmanship and delivering bigger and bigger results each season.

Last year’s spring collection found its way onto the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival and I think you’ll agree there are some show-stopping gowns in this collection that are likely to make big appearances as well.

As we go backstage at Yanina Couture, we’re given a glimpse into the makeup artists as they craft the Spring 2017 beauty look. This season, models wore fresh dewy skin, highlighted cheekbones and blush lips. It’s a romantic look for spring that seems fit for a fairy tale – and in such a gorgeous venue, I’m sure the models no doubt felt like they truly were living out their fairy tale dreams.

Yanina Couture plays with blouse sleeves for Spring 2017. Inflated sleeves are one thing, but my goodness are those ruffled bell sleeves beautiful!

Red is always a striking and memorable color on the runway and Yanina Couture treats us to quite a delicious feast, including a stunning tulle ball gown.

Before hitting the runway, Yulia Yanina posed with her belles of the balls. Together, you can really see the depth of the Yanina Couture’s Spring 2017 collection, as it plays with a variation of textures, silhouettes and color schemes. From the classic pastels that seem fitting for Easter Sunday, to monochrome looks and vivid read – Yulia plays with both ethereal and dramatic themes.

Of course, as wonderful as it is to go backstage at Yanina Couture, the runway show itself was also STUNNING. Here are some of my favorite looks, including a showstopping finale gown that I wish I could sashay around town in myself.

Yulia Yanina takes her bow with the most gorgeous finale gown.

Goodness me, I’m so in love with Yanina Couture! When I laid out my couture week schedule I had high hopes for the latest collection and Yulia delivered, ten-fold. I hope this post has been a bit of a treat for you, because it’s certainly been a treat for me to put together.

Probably the very best thing about Paris Couture Week is the parade of exquisite gowns that emerge on the runway. Gowns that have you dreaming of having a princess moment of your own. While my bank account may come up a bit short for haute couture, I’m so happy to see its legacy is alive and well.

Of course, and this should come as no surprise, the gowns are even more beautiful in motion. Treat yourself to a feeling like a princess and watch the full runway show at the Yanina Couture website, here. Which gown is YOUR favorite? Let me know!

 

Thank you to Yanina Couture’s gracious and talented PR team for providing these gorgeous images.
