This season, the Spring 2017 Couture collections relied heavily on classic pastel and monochromatic palettes, and in the midst of the presentations, Georges Hobeika's colourful showing was a breath of fresh air. While the always-welcome shades of powder pink and dusty grey were present, bold pops of royal blue and sunshine yellow felt fresh and unexpected, and lend themselves perfectly to a bold wedding day colour scheme.
With delicate embellishments and luxurious finishing touches, the Spring 2017 collection from Rami Al Ali provides endless glamorous inspiration for brides-to-be planning an extravagant wedding affair.
With the Academy Awards just around the corner, the arrival of Elie Saab's Spring 2017 Couture collection couldn't have been more perfectly timed. Featuring sophisticated silhouettes and strategically placed beading and embroideries, these gowns are meant to be worn by an Oscar nominee. Saab noted that the collection was inspired by Egypt, with vivid blue and glinting gold gowns referencing the tomb of King Tut, evil eyes discreetly embroidered in bodices, and a definite air of historical times embodied in every gown that was shown.
For the Spring couture season, Ziad Nakad released a collection of pastel, glittering gowns, featuring classic silhouettes of nipped-in waists and full, princess-like skirts. Sticking to what he does best, each of the designer's Spring 2017 gowns would be equally at home on either the red carpet or at a luxury black tie wedding.
