From intricate embroidery to statement sleeves to show-stopping embellishments, each and every show wowed. Here are some of our favourite fashion moments from yesterday's line up – simple tailoring need not apply.
The show: Sara Altwaim
Saudi born Sara Altwaim’s super feminine Spring/Summer 2018 collection was a sea of ruffles, embroidery, tulle and silk separates that beg to be worn.
The Details: Sometimes a dress flashes by on the runway and you don’t have time to truly appreciate the intricacy that really makes those finishing touches. Well that’s to our zoom feature, we’re poring over them in great detail, starting with Sara Altwaim’s embellished appliques and microscopic beading on dainty lace dresses.
The show: BY Sauce X Shoestova
The collaboration between award-winning concept store and one of the Middle East’s most styling women was never going to be anything short of an ultra-energetic show, full of sartorial spirit. Models walked the outdoor runway full of sass, attitude and personality – much like the clothes themselves.
The details: Dresses over jeans, jackets with stripes, checks and floral embroidery, and prints aplenty. Each and every look had fun with fashion and gave the crowd a little lesson in layering.
The show: Anaya
There were pretty pastels with metallic finishes and silhouettes of deconstructed shirts and cocktail dresses around every corner at Anaya Spring/Summer 2018.
The details: We’re loving the glints of gold and sheens on silver, which turn netted tops and layered skirts into breathtaking separates that were a real treat to watch glide down the runway.
The show: Atelier Zuhra
As soon as the first look walked down the runway it became quite apparent to Bazaar: the creator of Kirakira (the app that uses a filter to make everything sparkle) must have sat FROW at Atelier Zuhra.
The details: The sparkle. Oh, the sparkle. Models in museum-worthy gowns, adorned in hundreds of glinting fragments, took to the runway in a spectrum of gold, white, silver and black that wowed the audience. Click here to watch the show in action.
The show: Sid Neigum
For Spring/Summer 2018, international designer Sid Neigum offers up workwear a stylish twist.
The details: We left haute couture behind for the evening in search of something more wearable that can we can go to on a day-to-day basis. Enter Sid Neigum. With a simple colour palette of greys, purples, nudes and monochrome and a contemporary take on staple pieces, we can’t wait to add these pieces to our workwear wardrobe.
The show: Nabil Nayal
We ended the day with period pieces with vintage detailing.
The details: Ruffled bibs and statement collaring with sharp tailoring on the collars and cuffs made for a modern take on Victorian elegance.
