Our 7 Favourite Looks From Arab Designers At Couture Week

These Middle Eastern designers gave us gorgeous gowns to dream about in their Spring/Summer 2017 collections.

Paris Haute Couture Week is all about pushing the boundaries of fashion to the very limit.

And this season’s offerings certainly didn’t disappoint, with plenty of drool-worthy looks being debuted on the catwalk.

It was a star-studded affair, with the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid taking to the runway, while Kirsten Dunst, Kylie Minogue, Victoria Beckham and Nicole Kidman watched on from the front row.

The 16 Best Red Carpet Dresses From Middle Eastern Designers

Elie Saab

The Lebanese King of Couture took inspiration from royalty for this collection, with models donning regal tiaras and exquisite jewels. Nothing says queen like a billowing, full-length veil.

Rami Kadi

This embroidered suit dress is adorably chic (note: bell sleeves are going to be HUGE this season). We think you could even recreate the look at home, with a white dress and some cute iron-on patches.

Georges Chakra

The legendary Beirut-based couturier was all about the ultra-feminine, frothy dresses in dessert-like shades. This lemon sorbet-coloured chiffon gown looks good enough to eat.

Zuhair Murad

The A-lister favourite took on stars of a more literal kind for his collection, with dresses representing a night sky lit up with fireworks. How explosive is this dress? We love the polka-dot tights, too. 

Ashi Studio

Saudi designer Mohammed Ashi brought the drama with his eye-catching, structured pieces. Once again, it’s all about the voluminous sleeve… trust us, you’ll be seeing these on the high street.

Rami Al Ali

The Syrian designer combined East with West for his collection, transforming the traditional Japanese kimono with a 1950s silhouette. Just look at that fabulous obi bow belt. 

Georges Hobeika

The Lebanese designer wasn’t skimping on embellishments, with pearls and crystals dripping from the models’ handbags, ears and fingernails. We think this cherry blossom dream of a dress is blooming lovely.
