Ruching by any means is not a new technique, it has been used for many years and mainly for long gowns. The 2016 Summer/Spring runway has changed it up a bit and come out with ruched cocktail dresses, and I got to say I’m happy its back. J.W. Anderson and Balenciaga have revamped this trend from the 80’s and we’re all loving it. The details on the pieces from the Balenciaga collection are stunning, they incorporate silk white fabric and intricate seams. Most of the pieces seem as though they were inspired by lingerie because of all the sheer and corset-like features. Here are some of my favorite looks from the runway.
