Back to the Future

Fashion Forward:  Winter styles on the platform.  
Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2012/2013 runway show at Paris Fashion Week by Marc Jacobs. 

At the moment, in the Southern Hemisphere, it is getting cooler by the day, with higher than normal rainfall for this time of the year.  I don't usually look up links on YouTube unless it's an interesting tutorial, but I couldn't resist linking to this Louis Vuitton video clip.  Haute couture fashion is beautiful, but always requires a certain amount of imagination to see any individual I know walking down the street (or even wearing) the creations.  

Is this a blast from the past? It is reminiscent of an era that I have always liked and makes me admire any sewer who is able to recreate for themselves the beautifully tailored garments.   
Is there a time in fashion history that you particularly admire?  Do you sew or refashion garments to wear that resemble that era?
