Opulence: from Runway to Lingerie

The Fall-Winter 2013-14 runways were full of richly embellished textiles with classic, formal motifs and gilded effects.  These luxurious fabrics evoke Imperial Russia, Renaissance Europe, and the decorative arts of the Byzantine empire.

Here are some of my favorite examples from the runway:
