A Dream Deferred: Ziad Nakad

Jan 26, 2017

An invitation to attend arrived as the new year began, and alas, I could only dream that my schedule would allow this year. To escape to Paris during the wintery months, to slip into carefully curated attire and sit amongst the fashion elite gazing upon the talents and artistry offered, and walk, albeit it bundled, yet chicly so, along the streets of the City of Light . . . ah, forever a dream of mine, and hopefully someday soon to be a reality. But not this season, no, not yet. But invited I was to Ziad Nakad‘s spring/summer couture presentation which took place yesterday in Paris.

Offering simplistic sophistication and timeless feminine designs paired with intricate detail, this second couture collection was exquisitely stunning. The Lebanese designer, Ziad Nakad looks to the woman’s silhouette to determine the cut of each gown (and jumpsuit too I might add as you will see below), and in so doing reveals femininity and individuality in each design. Below are my hand-picked favorites from the collection.

  1. Gorgeous gowns. So beautiful. I wish the designers would let the models smile — they make it look like these gowns are no fun to wear?

  2. So beautiful!! What a dream to be able to (a) fit in them and (b) afford them and (c) have a place to wear them. Just stunning!!
