Fash­ion fo­cus LE­BANESE DE­SIGN­ERS HIT PARIS FASH­ION WEEK

Lebanon Traveler - - CONTRIBUTORS -

Le­banese de­signs wowed at this year’s Paris Fash­ion Week, with Beirut-based de­sign­ers show­ing their haute cou­ture mas­tery on the run­way with em­broi­dered de­signs that took thou­sands of hours to com­plete. Elie Saab’s col­lec­tion fea­tured flocks of birds in flight on vin­tage-style gowns in­spired from Beirut’s hey-day. Zuhair Mu­rad’s cou­ture col­lec­tion had a more bo­hemian slant with del­i­cate Chan­tilly lace and em­broi­dered flo­rals and rel­a­tive new-comer 29-year-old Rami Kadi showed that cou­ture can be con­tem­po­rary with gowns made from in­no­va­tive ma­te­ri­als like black sil­i­con lace and play­ful em­broi­dered prints. Other Le­banese de­sign­ers show­ing in Paris in­cluded Ziad Nakad and Sa­her Dia.
