Sophistication at its finest is the defining characteristic of the Shady ZeinEldine spring/summer 2012 collection. Luxury and elaborate designs always manage to impress yet a laser focus for complete amazement invariably leads to breath-taking designs. The Lebanese couturier put his mastery to work once again and as one might expect, the results are beyond awe inspiring. Evening dresses are meat to make a woman feel like a goddess and this is precisely the impression one gets at merely superficial glance. Luxury and refinement ooze through every single detail of the gorgeous gowns.

For short dresses, textural details are the most impressive aspects of design. Floral motifs, unexpected pleats along with beads, crystals and carefully selected tonal combos create an astounding bold impression and exude a feeling of unshakable body confidence. The inclination towards boldness and femininity is just as prevalent for floor-sweeping designs where the focus on creating proportions and highlighting curves and creating proportions are central.

Mermaid style dresses are dominant and daring touches in a variety of perspectives are the choices that take classy shapes and luxurious details to the masterpiece level. Sheer touches are highly valued for their ability to bring contrast along with a sense of lightness and their influence is wisely used for an unexpected touch that emphasizes the defining details of the dresses. Still, sheerness is only one of the style elements that impresses throughout the collection.

Complex embroidery, floral details and even sea reference touches along with precious tiny crystals, sequins and other elaborate embellishments are the sum of details that most cause one to fall in love with the amazing designs with an almost surreal appeal wherever you prefer utter sophistication or you go for figure emphasizing styles. Striking, memorable and spectacular, these bold designs are sure to put you in the spotlight and make you feel like a goddess every single time.
