Here we go! February has coming fast and Fashion Weeks are running faster.
Beyond all the noises and the tapping sounds on the iPhones whiles taking and posting pictures during the catwalks, the most beautiful part of fashion shows is that we enrich our eyes of beauty, of mesmeric dresses and for a short time we are taken back to a parallel environment.
This is the right description of the feelings while walking through the doors at Four Season Hotel George V in Paris, last January, when we attended the latest Oriental Fashion Show.
We kindly remembered and wrote about the edition from last year , so this time we couldn’t not miss to attend the show in person.
Walking down the long stairs- with a guilty pair of black high hills- the beautiful lounge of the Four Season welcomed all the hosts along with a gentle flute of rosé champagne and some sweet chocolate bonbon. The fashion taste must involve all our five senses!
In an immense renaissance style saloon, enlightened by dark blu room , everyone was looking for his most suitable seat, while a few sublime notes of a piano player pre announce the show was bound to take off.
Oriental Fashion Show welcome the greatest and fresh talent of Oriental Haute Couture designers and since 2004, thanks to the great work of its founder Hind Joudar, it aims to bring to Paris the luxury and glamour of a fashion taste that goes beyond boundaries, where Mediterranean and Arabic cultures are represented by the embroidery, the handcraft and the tales of emerging designers who lived and are proud to share with us their fashion views.
From Marocco, we met the charming and elegant dresses by Lamia Lakhassi- who attended successfully the previous edition as well- and took on the scene the Moroccan taste of the long caftans and its precious embroideries, marked by powerful colors. On the same theme, the caftans by Fatima Zohra Idriss, under the brand GR FASHION, where golden shades embrace precious and shining gems along the traditional moroccan dresses.
Hany El Behairy is the Egyptian taste , with a breathtaking collection that reminds of some ancient princess fairy tales, in these charming long dresses and veils , with a storm of shining perls. Imagination of far aways desert tales are running through our veins!
From Bahrein, the handcraft of mother & daughter talents of Nassem Alandalos, brought us to a fully blooming garden of flowers. The softness and untouchable sense of the dresses seem to flow along the catwalk. You breath the freshness air and you cannot avoid to be involved in a romantic dream in the middle of a spring time.
A little bit of poetry in the dresses presented by Menouba, where Ms Rodica Von Buta – one of the greatest senior models and French actress- took the final scene of a collection inspired by a South Spain literature, where the power of red and black dresses alternate to the detailed embroidery of the silhouette jackets. The colors are trapped in a color black block, before exploding on a harmonious pattern over the mid long skirts.
Not to far from the end of the show, the simplicity and elegance of the fabrics are brought throughout the catwalk by the Russian designer Humariff. A pale grey dress barely touch the floor at every single step and there is no need of jewels, no need for more items to be added. There is only the flown of the dress who captures the eyes until the final light turns off.
If your eyes are still shining at these spectacular tales, there is more to discover this coming week!
