Well, this is the definition of glow! A classic vintage silhouette that embraces your body with enough sequins to light your way down the aisle. Glimmers, stars in alignment, symbols, a virtuous serpent. Couture is a conspirator of the cosmos and its lucky stars. At times all that’s needed is a gown to attract love, fortune and fame. All the legends assert this as truth, and reality at Zuhair Murad stands as a testament to that mythos in his Fall/Winter 2022/23 collection.

Covered in feathers, sparkling sequins and gems, bows, draping, and bold colors, Georges Hobeika’s models simply lit up the runway in his Couture Fall Winter 2022/23 this past week. Georges describes the collection, “Eternal Gifts”, as a “…love letter to planet Earth and humanity” in the form of Lebanese couture. Shimmering tassels brought a sense of movement to one diaphanous 1920s-inspired dress, while a 3D effect was created on another with floral shapes, which extended out and wound their way around the bodice.
