Syrian-born fashion designer showcases latest collection in Paris
Syrian-born fashion designer Rami Al Ali today unveiled his prêt-a-porter collection to an intimate audience of fashion industry professionals in Paris at Jean Demavinssy Fashion Showroom.
The 26 piece Spring/Summer 2015 collection draws inspiration from the orchid and represents a new phase for the Rami Al Ali woman.
Fabrics are delicately feminine, with chiffons, crepes and silks playing host to a stunning display of embroidery, prints and beadwork – details that have come to signify the designer’s distinctive flair.
Billowing sleeves, flowing shapes and voluminous organza all nod to the delicate sculptural beauty of the opulent orchid, whilst crisp A-line dresses and sharply tailored shifts lend the pieces a chic, contemporary edge.
Sheer dresses with a fluttering of vibrant blooms add a risqué appeal, whilst floor length gowns gracefully cascade, bringing drama and extravagance.
Taking his cue from the rich shades of the orchid, vivid limes and dark salmons complement soft peaches and delicate lavenders to create a fresh colour palette that elevates the capsule wardrobeto innovative new heights.
This new line marks the first of Rami Al Ali’s bi-annual prêt-a-porter collections and entry into the competitive commercial market.
