THE HIGH RISE DRESS
Sadly, Olivier Theyskens is no longer with Nina Ricci, but his mark on fashion lives on in the high rise dresses he presented for Ricci's Fall 2008 collection. While sleeves on dresses are getting longer for Fall 2009, come Spring next year dress hemlines will be rising, but only in the front. Alber Elbaz for Lanvin [center]], John Galliano at Christion Dior [left], Marchesa [top], and Vivienne Westwood [right] all sent out variations on the high rise dress.
