A timeless collection
Lebanese designer, Georges Hobeika, displayed his Spring 2019 Haute Couture collection on Monday at Paris’s National Theater of Chaillot. The striking line drew its inspiration from 18th Century France, specifically the country’s last Queen, Marie Antoinette, and the Palace of Versailles where she lived.
The opening look served as a modern take on the fashion of the 18th century – the model strutted down the runway in a pink corset-top, sequined flared pants, and fingerless gloves covered in embellishments. This look paved the way for frilly skirts, lavish ball-gowns, and sparkling jumpsuits and dresses as they made their way down the catwalk, one look at a time.
The collection was truly fit for a queen, as it features lots of floral prints, feathers, and intricate jewel-like detailing and embellishments. The designer’s pieces gave off a romantic vibe, due to the regal and gentle fabrics used like satin, silk, and chiffon. The collection’s colour palette transitioned softly from pastel-like colours in pink, blue, mint and orange, to champagne, white, and black. It also included some ombre and multi-colored gowns.
The final dress down the runway was a show-stopping off-white wedding gown. The bridal dress was covered in crystals, and complimented by a floor-trailing crystal embellished veil, that floated behind the model as she closed the spectacular show.
