The first week of July brought many exciting new designs from our favorite labels to the runways of Paris during the Haute Couture Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012/2013 presentations. From Margiela‘s intricate crystal masks to Raf Simon‘s impressive debut at Christian Dior, this was a big week of exciting firsts and innovative visions. Although the designs are the real stars of the show, the music plays a huge supporting role in completing the spectacle.
We’ve checked out the awesome variety of tracks used in this year’s shows and rounded up our favorites. From pared-down indie rock remixes to hauntingly beautiful piano soundtracks, each show took a unique approach to ensure that the music captured the essence of the collections and brought the audience a truly unforgettable experience.
