Arab Fashion Week

By  | 

Arab Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 which is in its third edition, has come to an end. This season it presented more than 20 collections from more than 10 countries.

Arab Fashion week put Gulf women, such as Lamya Abedin from the United Arab Emirates, Alanoud Al-Attiya and Jeans Couture by a Saudi mother and daughter duo in the spotlight.

It also presented the first ever Emirati model, Rafeea al-Hajsi.

Italian designer Giada Curti showed a colourful collection with floral prints and stripes.

Palestinian designer Jamal Taslaq showcased gowns in traditional Palestinian patterns as models walked out to the music of Lebanese composer and Oud player Marcel Khalife.

Ingie Chalhoub was inspired by a Warhol exhibition she had seen in Paris and said “As I’m very fond of him I wanted to take back his drawings and his paintings and to make out of them some fabrics and some designs. Her models strutted down the catwalk in pleated skirts and blouses and disco-style dresses and jackets, all in a mix of bright red, fuchsia, blue and black.

Here’s our highlights from Fashion Week.
