The biggest, and final, destination for fashion week is none other than the City of Lights. It’s here the major names pull out all the stops to wow the show-weary. Raf Simons built a 53-foot-tall flower mound at the Louve for Christian Dior, Heidi Slimane’s Saint Laurent girls emerged from a glowing cube and Alexander Wang’s last bow at Balenciaga took place to Notorious B.I.G around a spa-like pool. But it was Tom Ford, who wasn’t in Paris at all, who managed to steal the spotlight with a video presentation in lieu of a traditional show starring Lady Gaga.
Second-Skin Slip Dresses
A staple of the 1990s the slip dress is breezing its way into your closet come spring. Valentino’s was classic, Saint Laurent’s came in slinky black silk and Balenciaga’s was breezy white, so there are plenty of styles to choose from.

Spring may be synonymous with a lighter palette, but spring 2016 comes with a bolder tint. Designers sent models parading down the runway in rich blues, purples and oranges to name a few.

It's no longer about a strictly skin-tight aesthetic. Designers from Tom Ford to Phoebe Philo at Celine showed looks heavy on loosely layered separates with drapy tops, flowy pants and asymmetrical hems.

It's always a trend for the warmer months, and spring 2016 is no different, so don't throw away those white outfits yet. The pale summer shade took over entire looks with matching separates, and even inspired Alexander Wang to create a collection full of nothing but white for his final Balenciaga show.

From Sequins to intricate beading, garments were hardly sent down the runway plain this season. Valentino notably took references from African art, while Tom Ford's sequin gowns are every party girl's dream.

While it has long been in the fashion conscious as a new neutral, animal prints were incarnated in radical color ways and over-the-top pieces for Spring with Donatella Versace leading the charge with her acid colored mini dresses and pant suits.
