Georges Hobeika Fall Couture 2013

Amidst all the excitement and glamour that was Paris Fall Couture Week, Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika showcased his royally inspired gem of a collection. Historical references to past princesses were freckled across the runway, denoted by elaborate ruffled (removable) Elizabethan collars, gleaming satin coat dresses and classic pencil skirts. 

High necklines, three-quarter sleeves and tea-length hems lent a certain modesty and grace to the range of stately looks. The colour scheme enchanted in a rich ruby red, muted nudes, a languid sip of iced lemonade, pale peach and a flourish of pink coral. 

Beautifully embroidered guipure lace, floaty chiffons and sumptuous satins lay the foundation for ravishing evening gowns that swept the floor with imperial elegance. Waists were clinched in with skinny belts, adding a modern feel to the time-honoured princess silhouettes. Silk threading and glistening pearls added the final intricate touches to this exquisite collection.

This is a glimpse across the Fall 2013-14 Couture catwalk of Georges Hobeika

Ali Hval said...

Oh my gosh, how enchanting are all these silouettes? I kind of just had to sit and stare at some of these dresses because the detailing on them is impeccable... if I were to pick a favorite, I'd go with that last one in set 2--the red color is stunning, and I love the slight sheerness to the top. And what a billowy skirt! <3

elegant dresses! :) i really like the last dress on set 5, although the first red dresses are really striking and the color is nice :)

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Hi Sam! Whenever you post all the beautiful fashions, I like to pretend I'm shopping and try to choose a favorite ... it's always very hard! They're all stunning but I think I'd probably end up going with one of the nude gowns ... they are so gorgeous!

Hope all is well in your world, Sam ... I've been enjoying summer so much, we just had the fourth of July celebration this last week and it was so busy with all of the entertaining and parade and fireworks (I entertained on my porch for the parade, followed by a picnic on the water in the backyard) for family and friends.

You asked me in one of my previous posts which program I use for illustrating. I actually don't use a program .. all of my illustrations are created by hand. They start out with a pencil sketch and I usually use a mixture of watercolor and gouache to paint them and when the paint is dry I accentuate the details with a little pen and ink. The illustrations are then scanned so that I can have prints created or show them on the blog. After they're scanned, I view them in photoshop to be sure skintone and clothing colors that I see on the computer looks the same as the original hand drawn fashion illustration and if the scan has changed it, which sometimes happens, I simply bring it back with photoshop to match the original. The only other things done by computer are when I add the sparkles that I do occasionally that flash on and off. Thanks for your interest! ;) Have a fabulous week! xo ~S

So many wonderful outfits, dearest Sam! My fav is the 3rd in the 1st row but to be honest I like all of them!

Many thanks, for your lovely feedback regarding my traditional dress. I love it indeed to wear our traditional dresses! And this is interesting that you still speak Afrikaans because I have read so many books about Safrica in the past and I thought that Afrikaans is not usual today ... do you know any German speakers?

Wish you a wonderful and happy week!
