Atelier Versace's Haute Couture Shines in Fall/Winter 2012-2013 Collection

Luxury fashion designer and icon, Donatella Versace unveiled her new Atelier Versace Fall/Winter 2012-2013 Collection by kick-starting Paris' haute couture ball on July 1, 2012, a three-day event that will feature two dozen fashion houses. The collection of glamorous dresses wrapped the models in layers of chiffon and tight bustiers made from strips of fine leather, many accented with crystal embroidery, as they walked the runway in statement-making shoes.

Always ahead of fashion trends, Versace has stated that her haute couture collection was inspired by the imagery of tarot cards and it's immediately obvious when looking at the dreamlike designs. Many of the dresses feature high slits, bold abstract prints, and vibrant colors (including plum, chartreuse, sky blue, and raspberry sherbet) that reflect some of the major arcana cards meant to symbolize different aspects of human nature, like the lovers, the star, the moon, the sun, and the empress.
