Whether it’s the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, or, more recently, the 72th Cannes Film Festival, Arab designers are slowly but surely stealing the sartorial show on the red carpets. When it comes to breathtaking gowns in scene-stealing silhouettes and high-octane glamour, no one seems to do it quite like the Zuhair Murads, Elie Saabs and Rami Kadis of the world.
This year, Victoria’s Secret angels including Izabel Goulart and Sara Sampaio both opted for creations by Lebanese designers; Aishwarya Rai shut down the red carpet in not one but two gowns from Arab fashion houses; Hollywood A-listers from Amber Heard to Priyanka Chopra also chose Lebanese labels.
And for the first time, this year, we also saw regional faces Farhana Bodi and Rania Fawaz support UAE names.
