ARAB FASHION WEEK SS23

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SIXTH DAY OF ARAB FASHION WEEK WOMEN’S READY-TO-WEAR SPRING SUMMER 2023

  • The last day of Arab Fashion Week Women’s kicks off with messages of Peace and Unity.
  • Sustainability and ethical fashion continue to take center stage on the catwalk of Dubai Design District.
  • Arab Fashion Week closes with record numbers and a palpable boost to the local economy.

Emergency Room
“We need humanity, more than cleverness… life will be violent, and all will be lost” read the screen at Emergency Room’s “Borderline” show. With a name that stems from the belief that the world needs to drastically change its wasteful ways, the Beirut-based sustainable, and ethically focused brand portrayed a united world where flags are obsolete. On the runway, a series of white pieces, hand printed with various visa stamps represented the different countries designer Eric Mathieu Ritter and his team have visited. Elsewhere, the collection focused on pairing up-cycled denim with white cotton and mish-mashing sports jerseys, knitted sports scarves, and polyester flags, to usher in the upcoming World Cup.

Zardouz
Iranian designer Mohammad Amin Pour Eskandarian’s everyday couture boutique in downtown Tehran visually conveys the everyday impact the Middle East’s crisis has on everyday life. Here at Arab Fashion Week, a series of genderless designs were indicative of a world in transition. Velvety, floor-sweeping dresses fashioned with hoods and fanciful layers were crafted to facilitate a wide range of movement and activities. On an emotional note, the brand said that its embroidered sewing technique infuses each item with a tree-trunk feel, inspiring viewers here to contemplate the world beyond the fashion industry.

Born in Exile
Since leaving Libya in 2014 upon the outbreak of civil war, Libyan designer Ibrahim Sheban has used his designs to remind the world of the undiscovered beauty of Libya, his eternal muse. “His latest “Never Love Me Again” collection is composed of irreverent designs, leather jackets, trench coats and an updated kandora demonstrating how society is rapidly evolving. A mosaic tile print emblazoned onto a mini skirt and jacket ensemble, a fanciful sun dress, and a tracksuit conjured the architectural treasures of Libya.

Louzan
Silk abaya-inspired ensembles awash in a palette of Arabian sunset-to-sunrise colors sashayed down the runway to the tune of a heritage soundtrack. After six days of international shows and new perspectives, it was a refreshing reminder of the region’s origins and the creative mystique that emanates from the Arabian Peninsula. This time, the simplicity of the abaya came to the fore, consciously enhanced with sartorial elements like trench collars, fringe details and innovative textiles and prints like polka dot and architectural tile motifs.

Slimi Studio
Unapologetically fierce, Slimi Studio churned out a collection of spandex designs bright enough to light up the night sky. Laser-cut bodysuits, miniskirts and leotards were paired with oversized puffer jackets. Amped up with gathered sleeves and asymmetrical cuts, the collection embraced couture heritage with eye-catching feather detail and romantic drapery.

Death by Dolls
London-born, LA-educated Sara Al-Saud’s Death by Dolls runway injected the last day of shows with a Hollywood club vibe. The brand that has dressed megastars like Britney Spears and Beyonce returned to Arab Fashion Week with rule-breaking designs like barely-there bandeau tops and lingerie-inspired ensembles. A child of the punk 80s, Al-Saud continues to stand by her vibrant, bright colors, anything shiny and sparkly, intense textures, even among her more modest looks involving denim jackets and her hijabs.

The Giving Movement
An urban palette of grey, black, and white set the tone for the last show on the Arab Fashion Week roster. The Giving Moment, the Dubai- LA- KSA brand pioneering ethically made, sustainable athleisure and streetwear, unleashed a collection mirroring the faces and figures walking the Dubai streets today. Hijabs, silky pajamas, utilitarian track pants, tees crisscrossed with hiking straps, and models clad in workout gear closed the curtain on one of the most dynamic fashion weeks.

NEHERA SS23 Show Package in 360 MAGAZINE.

NEHERA SS23

SHOW PACKAGE

“Your shirt is too low. Your pants are too masculine. In fact, don’t wear pants. Dress feminine. That’s too much. Don’t show your midriff. Show your shoulders. Cover up. You’re too dressed down. You’re too dressed up. Loosen up. Wear some color. That’s too much color.”

Femininity was constantly subjected to power judgments, whether through social norms or sartorial verdicts. This made us doubt, overanalyze, and overthink what we put on.

The Spring Summer 23 is a statement for the uncomplicated, the easygoing and the effortless. Furthering NEHERA’s foundation in tailoring, the collection introduces easy to operate wardrobe, mentally friendly and physically enjoyable.

The narrative arc of the collection is liberating the Woman from the tyranny of sartorial judgements and verdicts to empower freedom and self-expression.

The garments are self-evident, speaking and leading the Woman to unforced stylings as well as offering choice and versatility. The palette is urban, confidently exploring color blocking.

Coordinated monochromatic looks that range from understated hues to bold colors. No hesitation or second thoughts. Exploiting the brand’s experience and passion for tailoring, the collection is smoothly assembling sophisticated, deconstructed styles to simple, comfortable suits.

The print of the collection is the result of a collaboration with an artist based in Antwerp and born in Brastislava, Juraj Straka. Having grown up in Slovakia, it was an obvious choice for Nehera to collaborate with him. Having already collaborated for Schiaparelli and Dries van Noten, he comes this season to deliver his knowledge to the house Nehera. He digitalizes his painting to create a powerful pattern.

With SS23, NEHERA makes a statement that high fashion doesn’t need to be mentally exhausting, it can be easygoing yet elegant, simple yet erudite.

Kim Kardashian at Dolce&Gabbana via 360 MAGAZINE

Dolce & Gabbana SS23

CIAO, KIM

Kim Kardashian is the ultimate muse. Her confidence, independence, sense of style and sensuality have served as inspiration to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in creating this Collection and revisiting their 90s and 00s archives. It is these very same legendary pieces that have inspired Kim so often throughout her own life and career, making this moment a dream come true.

A journey steeped in new meanings through the Dolce&Gabbana archives, discovering the brand’s most authentic DNA: if it is true that fashion moves forward in search of ever-new expressions, when creativity is firmly rooted in its identity it knows how to transcend time and space. Thus, even when it is rethought, repurposed, reinterpreted through the eyes of the present and the consciousness of the past, it retains its most genuine nature while managing to speak to many different generations: everyone will see in it something different in which to recognize themselves.

A universal and inclusive language that gives voice to everyone’s desires and aspirations. Domenico, Stefano and Kim, with a leading role as the Collection’s curator, bring to life the dream of today’s woman, exalting feminine beauty in all its forms and expressions: a state of the soul, the attitude and courage that make every woman unique.
