Contrary to popular non-fashion blogger belief - there can Never be too many pretty dresses. Ever. And Lebanese designer Ziad Nakad has proven just that with his breathtaking treasury of couture gowns for Fall/Winter 2014. In a world where only 2% of the population can afford such lavish decadence, I am convinced that this collection should be part of that splendor.
A ruby reverie fires up this exquisite range with crystal drizzled evening dresses that accentuate the female form in all the right places. Mermaid dresses are unsparingly embellished with intricate beadwork and dainty floral embroideries. The volume of detail involved in each dress is profound, Nakad's complex sense of design and use of opulent fabrics create an equipoise of sensual glamour and regal sophistication.
Sapphire, violet and emerald gowns enrich the jewel themed collection, with softer hues present in mint, lilac, ivory and gold. Sheer tulle and chiffon are heavily contrasted with densely sparkled droplets that have been hand-beaded onto low-neck bodices and fishtail skirts. Ziad Nakad propels the art of couture into a new state of grace.
This is a look at Ziad Nakad's bedazzling Fall/Winter 2014 Haute Couture Collection.
