It’s amazing how fashion designers manage to express their vision of style and Rami Kadi is one of those designers that stuns with his creative genius. Apparently, Mr. Kadi loves to give his designs a fairytale meets opulence meets Arabic luxury spin and we absolutely adore the results given by the combo.
Titled “Le Royaume Enchanté”, Rami Kadi’s latest 2014 dress collection was apparently inspired by the pages of a fairytale. The story of a princess that has just woken up in a castle after a long sleep and the idea of her walking astonished along the imposing walls of the castle’s corridors and rooms inspired the designer to create dresses that have the power to spark dreams. The question whether she found or hasn’t found her prince becomes irrelevant as the beauty and luxurious allure of the designer dresses make us focus on her attire only.
Tulle, silk crepe, organza, mikado, and lace were the fabrics that helped the designer transpose his vision of fashion into reality meaning quality was not sacrificed in the creation process.
The dramatic volumes and shapes are not something new when it comes to Rami Kadi’s dresses. The new designs only open a new doors, pushing him further into the spotlight as to our opinion, the Lebanese designer could surely compete with heavy names in the high-end fashion industry, names such as Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad.
The 2014 “Le Royaume Enchanté” dress collection focuses on bringing dresses of various proportions. Short and floor-grazing gowns cut after ballgown patterns, empire gowns, or form fitting patterns enable women to adapt the dress to both the occasion and their body type. Although fairytale-opulence comes to mind first at the sight of the couturier dresses, a sense of modernism also makes its presence felt. Heavy embellishments, cut-outs and high slits give the collection a boost in glamor and sexiness, making them look truly fit for a future queen.
As far chromatics go, Rami Kadi chose to play mostly with pretty pastels, shades that ooze femininity and that have a certain warmth. Pink, orange, yellow, green, baby blue, lavender, fuchsia and white dominate the extensive dress collection, so check out the entire lineup and tell us which, if any, won your heart.
