Sky Is The Limit!

Setting up a photoshoot in a simple balcony with a clear sky must feel very unglamorous!

Well! the only way to find out is to simply put the theory to test!
  
My verdict : couture glamour and clear sky is a super blend!

Birds of Fashion Flock Together!


The glitzy week was all about bumping into the same crowd, listening to the
same questions; which Abaya is your favorite? and what you think of fashion
this season?
Fashion shows, weddings and finally being able to finish my lovely campaign.
I can’t wait to launch it!
BTW for those who are not from this part of the world, our fall starts next month J

Listing my Favorite Trio this week:

1@Lamya Abedin Queen of Spade Fashion Show at Atlantis Dubai

Lamya as I recall follows a theme to inspire and guide her designs. This season she presented the Hanami collection - inspired by the cherry blossom festival of Japan.
Plentiful Japanese art forms and techniques have been used to structure the collection. Fabrics like hand-painted silks, Japanese suede, and chiffons were used galore.

Lamya always talks about how a unique look plays an integral part in her abaya style and the essence of turning a particular favorite garment into multiple styles.
This time I can see it was the two-piece loose-fitted trousers paired with a wrap-around top, created on the kimono,  Portable sleeves and reversible abayas.
Like the land of rising sun theme she is our rising star!

2@Amal Murad Fashion Show
Saks 5th Avenue introduced Amal Murad’s REDAA collection in an informal setting!
The collection, a sophisticated and modern abayas, mostly for cocktail and evening wears, matching clutch bags and a new addition of silk scarves.
I adored the simplicity and elegance of the set up and the chance to see the entire collection up close.
