Paris Womenswear AW13 – Emma Wyman's highlights

Dazed's fashion editor picks her best-of from the capital

MARGIELA1

Throughout the Autumn/Winter womenswear fashion weeks, the Dazed fashion team summarise their highlights of New York, London, Milan and Paris. Here fashion editor Emma Wyman shares her Paris highlights.

FAVOURITE LOOKS OF PARIS AW13:

I loved the needlepoint couture embroidery at Margiela, such beautiful layering; it almost looked like the needle point was floating on top of classic tailored white shirts (above).

Valentino was very beautiful, I especially liked the minimal Wednesday Adams look. I love how the minimal panelled collar/shoulder detail transformed the silhouette of the dress.

Céline was amazing as always, this collection was particularly strong. Phoebe Philo's interpretation of the laundry bag was really interesting, as were the restraining layered across the shoulder pieces.

FAVOURITE SHOE:
The Dior satin over the knee embroidered boots. I love the quality of the embroidery, you can really see the artists' hand within the design.
