She was so polished and well put together and the designer for her look-Fadzil Hadin was also on her arm. It was incredibly chic and fresh. A break of sorts from all the ball gowns or body conscious dresses sprinkled amongst the crowd of show-goers. So check outif you have a chance. They can ve found at the
This collection while not as over the top as we have come to expect from the fabulous Furne One, did not lack in story telling or cohesion nor in attention to detail and I liken to call it "Pretty Woman in Punk".
With the fishnets not only on the gams but the gloves, the models wearing one earring, the leather thigh highs and booties as well as punk caps that were paired with feathers and oversized bows, draped fabric and bright colors, it was ala "very Vivian" and as visible as the transformation seen on Julia Roberts character when she appeared in the infamous red Marilyn Vance dress in the film.
While I believe the focus was to be on the jewelry, it did appear to be an afterthough, but the pieces that were used definitely stood out towards the end of the collection. What I also loved was the great use of color not only in the designs but with the models.
There were models of ALL shades present on tihe runway and each look left you wanting to see more. #Representationmatters. So fabulous job as always Amato. But I had to get ready for the showstopper that was Rami Kadi. An incredibly young Lebanese designer as only 33, Rami is more than ready to be seen and his designs definitely reflect that. At the tender age of 25, in 2011, he had already launched his own showroom and atelier in Beirut and recently debuted at Paris Fashion Week just this year. Check out his Spring/Summer 2019 collection below.
With feathered frocks mixed with tweeds and paired with bermuda shorts.
To floor length gowns with ruffled flair. He has an eye and intuition that speaks to innovation and creation by attempting to see and feel fabrics in unorthodox ways and yet continually comes across as young and fresh but not overly trendy.
Just have a look and tell me what you think because personally I was blown away.
The broken glass look was breathtaking along with the use of embellishments and heavily detailed cutouts and shapes.
His creations were fun and fearlessly editorial, made for the woman who wants to own the room when she walks in.
A woman who wears Rami Kadi, in my opinion, has to believe in the mantra "I came, I saw, I killed it" and have an appreciation for standing out with no fear of being different.
