The highly-talked about fashion engaging, remarkable event Fashion Forward started with a bang. It is this amazing platform that brings together emerging regional designers, local and international fashion experts, leading fashion universities, local and international editors & bloggers and the region's most stylish crowd. Its not just the people, the fashion shows or talks, its the entire vibe of the event which is so inspiring. And this season, fashion forward comes with an addition of 'The Garden' a hall where selected local and regional designers can showcase their accessories etc.
As it was the first day of Eid too, I was out for lunch with family and was already exhausted so didn't feel like dressing up so much so kept my outfit a bit casual - I wore a ZARA bling top, Proenza Schouler white skinnies and beige ZARA heels with my mini Chanel and a vintage necklace.
Unfortunately I was unable to attend the opening party of The Garden due to Eid plans but made it in time for the fashion shows. I attended EZRA and The Emperor 1688. I Loved Ezra's collection which was more of gowns and dresses with that unique EZRA touch of course. The crowd was buzzing and it was a full house but the thing that I loved most about the show was how Ezra's entire team was at the catwalk and were applauded. Super Amazing! Here are a few of my favourites of EZRA's collection.
Next On was The Emperor 1688. This was the first time I witnessed the collection but had heard so much about their great italian suits and their limited women wear and of course, about the handsome brothers. I truly loved the collection especially the styling and the accessories. The women wear was unique and beautiful. It was definitely my style, the blazer with floral embellishments, the cuts & colors, and of course the 'sunflower dress' which I was told by the Golkar brothers that it was made of real flowers and they were sprayed every hour since 6 am to keep them fresh. The hard work did pay as it surely was the talk of the show. But my personal favourite was the black and white dress and the matching blazer for men and the delicate embellishments on the dress as well as the blazer was beautiful. So here are my favourites from the collection ( it was hard to choose as i thought the entire collection was remarkable).
