Zuhair Murad’s stunning floral couture collection was a showcase of his unparalleled construction abilities. The caged and corseted boning was clearly inspired by the underpinnings of historical gowns. Dresses incorporated panniers, corset boning and laces, with geometric grids appearing as glittering surface embellishment.
The gowns were an interpretation of a garden whose trellised gates were placed along the model form and cinched around the waist. Murad worked lampshade skirts into flirty cocktail dresses and grand evening gowns, all lavishly embroidered to evoke garden lattices and flowers. The palette was dominated by powdery pastels in sugared almond shades.
One of the more whimsical and seductive looks was a flowing greige chiffon gown with an embroidered top and matching cape sparkling with silver crystals.
