The Fashionably Late Schiaparelli Relaunch

Excitement filled the air as Italian business man and Schiaparelli owner Diego Della Valle announced the plans for a relaunch of the Schiaparelli label earlier this year. It was no coincidence that the announcement coincided with the Met Costume Institute exhibit which celebrated the iconic Elsa Schiaprelli. The new designer for the label was set to be announced within weeks of the announcement, with the debut collection set to be ready for January 2013. As of last Thursday, Farida Khelfa, who is the labels spokeswoman, said a designer has not been found and the relaunch is more likely to debut Summer 2013 instead. Surely the designer will have some big shoes to fill, but all of us at EngieStyle are hoping they will find someone immediately as we are eager to see what’s next for the legendary label! xxSharona

Many fabulous runway shows later, Paris fashion week comes to an end leaving us all dreaming of couture. Here are my favorite designs, but I have to admit the Chanel show is what truly stole my heart away…Thanks Karl.
