Day 3 saw yet another amazing line up of shows, of which I had attended many. It was a long, hectic day but worth every bit. I attended the Bashar Assaf, Asudari, Madiyah Al Sharqi, Dima Ayad, Hashe and Amato shows. Read on for collection reviews and pictures.

This collection does not claim to be ethereal but it attempts to capture all that is. Prints of rock formations and plastic wrap on cotton and silk, flowing floor length skirts in magic mint and bra tops in air superiority blue, wrap dresses in crêpe or wide leg pants in sheer georgette. Ethereal Spring 2015 is a collection inspired by all that is “too perfect for this world”. 
Bashar Assaf's collection is a minimalistic take on the sports luxe trend. Relaxed silhouettes, beautiful colour palette and strong tailoring and design. Definitely one of my favourite ready-to-wear collections this season! 


Asudari

This Spring/Summer season, Asudari explores notions of untying the past, playfulness and freeing the self through their signature digital prints and geometric patterns. Throughout the collection, bows provide a strong motif illustrating the human desire to unlock memories, process past events and unbind the chords that keep us tied to repressive emotions. The bow appears in various guises, proportions and states of formality. They are whole and fragmented, traditional and loosely tied culminating in undone bows flowing loosely down garments in streams of ribbon. Aside from the digital prints, prints are translated through the use of embroidery and 3D printing.
Contributing to that notion of relaxed freedom, parts of the collection are rendered in satins, silks and chiffons within a colour palette that encapsulates the mood of the season. 
The collection in a nutshell: A myriad of mixed prints in 50 shades of purple!


Madiyah Al Sharqi

This season Al Sharqi follows the signature influences of the 70’s by introducing elegant off-shoulder pieces, ruffles and billowing sleeves, drawing inspiration from her muse; Marie Antoinette. Her Spring/Summer collection features an array of garments, from gowns to sleek separates by incorporating effortless silhouettes composed of a fresh color palette in lavender, peach, khaki and white tones. Al Sharqi’s custom use of layering fabrics such as jacquards, crepe and lace continues to be the signature of the brand within this collection, luxuriated with the use of embellishments composed of unique crystals and carefully selected stones. I was in awe of every piece in the collection. Simply stunning, absolutely gorgeous and utterly feminine. Want! Love!

Ava Hashemi drew the inspiration behind this collection from the middle-eastern art and architecture. Since this is the first collection Hâshè is showcasing in Dubai, the collection aims to capture the spirit of Dubai; hence the use of vibrant colors and structured silhouettes.

This collection is named “Reflection” since Ava believes it’s a reflection of her background and childhood. I loved the uniqueness and fresh vibe of the collection. 
My only tiny, minor gripe is the hats. The collection could've done without them as the designs are eye catching enough. They dont really require those. Nevertheless, Hashe is one promising label to watch out for.

Dima Ayad

For her Spring Summer 2015 collection, Ayad offers a range of options and garments that come in a variety of clean and feminine cuts, the key being simplicity. Her range includes a combination of gazar organza, jacquard and jersey in fresh block colours including sunny yellow, lilac, silver, navy blue, and hints of nude undertones. The silhouettes are a combination of classics re-engineered, voluminous skirts with matching fitted tops and of course her signature crop top re-introduced in this collection with a twist.

The inspiration behind this collection comes from a space odyssey, neo classic imagery, cloning and sci- fi movies but also from love stories. It is like a waltz in space.
Furne One looked at alien-like deep sea creatures with transparent bodies, droid space soldiers and cloning and mixed them with drama and romance. The colour palette is mainly white, with various textures such as lace, tulle, linens, ribbons and ceramics creating an effect that is futuristic and minimal yet romantic and intricate at the same time.
The show was breathtaking. It was not just a fashion show. It was a visual treat for the eyes. What an experience! Audio-visuals, light and sound effects and some stunning designs. The Amato show was perfect for the finale of Fashion Forward. A great way to leave a lasting impression on our minds and make us yearn for more.
