Dominique Sirop, can only "Dress" you up !!

Dominique Sirop's Fall 2009 Haute Couture collection comprised only of dresses, and that too of the simplest kind he has ever produced.While extending his draping techniques from Fall 2005 and Fall 2006 couture collections, didn't seem a bad idea, the collection was too focused on wearable clothes almost like pret-a-porter, so much so that the entire collection could have been part of a RTW show.Each of the twenty dresses can be worn off the shelf without any alterations, the color palette was sufficiently varied to include purple, blue, black, red and gray, making the dresses appealing to a wider client base! While Dominique may not be the only one to have embraced simplicity in these turbulent times, churning out practical, wearable(to be interpreted as high on client appeal with a decent price tag) clothes, still a couture show with a very focused collection completely devoid of excess is a bit contrived!!
