I am currently captivated by the ingenious Beirut-based designer Krikor Jabotain. The talented couturier began work at the creative department of none other than Elie Saab, before later embarking upon his own label at just 23. Krikor offers us new insight into the elaborate world of couture; he proposes high-end glamour without the usual glitzy beadwork and flashy shades.
His modern approach to the art sees focus on three-dimensional silhouettes, capitalization of voluminous proportions and the undeniable romance of ruffles. For Fall 2013, Jabotain paints a celestial white, ivory and matt gold palette in asymmetrical shapes, featuring skirts and bodices that are lavishly texturized with a majestic splay of frothy layered frills.
Diaphanous lace, woven embroideries, sheer tulle skirts and feathered finishings contribute to the dramatic bridal-like looks. These Goddess dresses are nothing short of spectacular, pieces of wearable art that flaunt an undulating sense of movement and embody all that is feminine.
Are you also enchanted by these resplendent dresses?
