Runway Review: Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture

MRK_9404.450x675 MRK_9524.450x675

Zuhair Murad’s collection was all about gothic sex appeal. The colors were all about the blues, reds and greens but in darker shades which depicted the goth side of the collection.

Of course couture is mostly about what designers do with the details, structure and embroidery and even though this collection did’nt deliver much concerning structure, Murad made up for it with the excess embellishments and embroidery. Asides that, the collection also featured victorian necklines and lots of lace. I could see a number of these looks flowing down the red carpet especially on the designer’s muse Kristen Stewart. Also, Beyonce needs to get in that black lace catsuit for one of her stage performances!

 I hope you love the collection as much i did! Enjoy…xxx

Runway Review: Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture

Elie Saab never ceases to amaze me. He is the king of couture! What I love about this collection is the fact that the silhouettes used were very simple. There was a rampant display of the A – line silhouette, drapes, corseted body hugging frames etc but what seemed to be his main focus here was the embellishments, embroidery and details which included sequins, stones and crystals.

 The colors used was inspired by royal stones like sapphire, ruby, emerald and so much more. If you are an Elie Saab, you would know that this genius is also very fond of the monochromatic look on the runway and he didn’t fail to use this trend this time. He loves pairing red dresses with red shoes, green dresses with green shoes and this may be hard to pull off but he sure does make it look like a piece of cake. In conclusion, this was a really elegant and beautiful collection.
